"I lost my job last year and could not afford to get my poodles groomed every 4/5 weeks. I then completed a dog grooming course at the end of last year I now groom my own 2 dogs and my family's for a small fee, I'm still learning by experience every time but the course gave me a huge head start as well as confidence and support. Thank you Learning online." - Melinda
