Lienke has over 11 years of experience and is an expert in dog grooming. She works as an all-round dog groomer in her own salon, but is specialized in the Poodle.

How Online Dog Grooming is started time for an official name and registration in the Chamber of Commerce
Online Dog Grooming is started because of our many years of collaboration. We have been organizing demos and workshops for dog groomers together since 2016. We started live webinars in 2020. More than 450 participants attended our webinars, workshops and private training.
This year our training offer has been expanded with the online basic course 'Dog grooming from A to Z' and online masterclasses, so that you can choose which way of learning suits you best. With the expansion of our training offer, it was time for an official name and registration in the Chamber of Commerce
Online Dog Grooming was born! The new training platform for ambitious dog groomers with all courses and trainings available in one central place. We hope to meet you soon during the online basic course 'Dog trimmings from A to Z' or during a webinar.
