    Dog Grooming Diploma, excellent theory

    Very well thought out course packed full of information. Good beginners course. Would Recommend!
    Covers the basics including equipment which is great for anyone thinking of working from home. Emphasis on first aid which is great to know. Now all there’s left to do is get into a salon to learn from the experienced. Feel more confident going in with the knowledge provided on this course.

    Thank you!
