I recently completed my level 3 dog grooming course and the team were fantastic. The trainers and owner were extremely welcoming and made me feel comfortable from the beginning. The level of training provided was excellent and the support is still there when you finish the course. On day 1 you are given health and safety briefing for your own safety and the dogs, this is carried on throughout the course as health and safety for all parties is their main priority. They are all amazing at what they do and their love for the dogs is unreal ♥️ I would highly recommend a course or a dog groom here.
