Our Mission and Philosophy
The Nash Academy was born out of a desire to create, in the dog grooming school industry and in education for the care of companion animals, a high level of expertise and proficiency among pet care professionals, matched by an equally high level of compassion, kindness and safety for every pet groomed and animal cared for. For the Nash Family, there is no other standard possible in the animal care professions. Because of this, the Nash Academy dedicates itself to the advancement of each student at the school in terms of expertise and love of the dog, cat and horse, and to the concept that each and every Nash graduate perform in the most compassionate, professional and skillful manner possible.
The Sky is the Limit at Nash
Because the Nash Family believes in the aesthetics of dog grooming and styling as well, students are encouraged to explore both their individual creativity and expression in the classroom. It is a Nash belief that creativity, coupled with a love and passion for this profession and for the dog, are the key elements needed for a successful educational experience and for the future of the dog grooming and styling professions. Cat and horse grooming and care afford students the same opportunities for creativity and self-expression, and the Nash Academy encourages all its students to express their love of animals utilizing the knowledge they obtain in the courses.
Global Approach to Training
The Nash Academy practices a global approach to learning, as love of the dog, cat and horse, and appreciation for the beauty of the dog, cat, and horse, are not limited to any city, country or continent: they are truly international, and transcend all boundaries and politics. As the Nash Academy expands its unique educational approach to the care and grooming of all companion animals, the same criteria, of kindness, compassion, safety and artistic expression will define the learning possibilities afforded to every student.
Nash System of Education
Revised consistently over the years, the Nash Curriculum is at the cutting edge of Dog Bathing, Grooming & Styling Education. Originally written in 1979 by the late John Nash, the Nash Curriculum was structured with the flexibility to implement innovative systems and methods to provide the most advanced, in depth training for all levels of interest and skill in the pet care profession. And, with the introduction of the revolutionary online courses, the Nash Academy has altered forever the methods of training for employment in the pet care professions!
