I completed my level 3 diploma here at the Paw Pad Grooming School. I would highly recommend anybody wishing to change their career to dog grooming to enrol here, the 'team' are fab-u-less! Just to add, the safety of the dogs during our training was definitely the biggest priority, this is probably the most important lesson that I walked away with.
