A note from the Director Kelly Davis
Hello and thank you very much for your interest in our dog grooming courses. I hope that you find the following information helpful. Student numbers are limited on my dog grooming courses to ensure intensive and individual tuition. On the first day, a theory folder is supplied which contains a vast amount of knowledge needed to support you during and after your course. I provide the model dogs for you and fortunately we have an excellent variety of breeds in our area so you will gain lots of experience working with many different breeds. We closely supervise your work and at the end of each day you will be supplied with a comment sheet. This is an overview of your day’s work, broken down into specific sections with constructive criticism. I work hard to ensure that my students have the skills and confidence to build successful careers in the pet grooming industry. My aim is to provide good value for money on all of our courses and our feedback speaks for itself! Please find full course details below and please contact us if you have any questions. My team and I are always happy to help! I look forward to welcoming you on to one of our courses. Yours Sincerely, Kelly Davis
