Excellent course, I’ve really enjoyed it and have learnt so much, was lovely to do something for me. The reason I wanted to do this my fur baby had spine surgery and I really don’t want him to go to a groomer as I’m very protective of him, I’ve learned a new skill and am saving money on grooming costs as I have two fur babies
