I have just finish a 5 week course for professional dog grooming, i can definitely say i have learnt more in this 5 weeks than i did doing animal care at college for a year. It is all hands on experience aswel as a few classroom sessions. It is definitely the best way to learn dog grooming. I can say i now feel confident to carry on on my own, you gain the right skills and knowledge to start on your own. The tutors are great and everyone makes you feel welcome.
