    fun but but not very practical

    I did really enjoy this course and there was lots of interesting information but I found it difficult to apply to real dog grooming, its only really 10% actual grooming and with very little actual technical information, just more general instructions of the order to groom different breeds and the general shapes of the cuts. I could have done with instructional diagrams to show the specific techniques to use on different cuts and helpful tips, such as how to get an even coat without stacking. It also references videos and images that aren’t there (I found out that they are from a different pay to view course). Despite this I found it really fun to do and have used the things I learnt on my own dog, but I do doubt the knowledge I would have to groom other dogs in a slightly more professional role but I do believe it has been a really helpful start to my grooming career.

    Dog Grooming Advanced Level 3

    I have been interested in Dog grooming for a while and I found this course very informative, although on a practical basis, there was not much in the way of demonstrations, luckily I knew a lot of people who gave me the opportunity to put into practice what I had learnt on their dogs and I feel you learn more especially this type of course by a lot of practical experience.

    Good course but no response to communication

    Course material is good, however received result of final assessment 2 months ago and still not received certificate. No response to numerous emails and voicemails which is very concerning.

    Fab Course

    Course was incredibly informative. only issue was some of the questions in the assessments didnt make sense, and there were some spelling mistakes in the course. also loved how they include first aid and give you lists of first aid kits. definitely recommend this course.
