We both attended the 6 week grooming course at Grooming Tails/Catwalk Dogs in St Helens and really enjoyed it. We worked on a very wide range of dogs from Shih Tzus to St Bernards and Bedlingtons to Giant Poodles. There were several dogs to work on every day and working in a salon and the very busy environment has helped us to understand the reality of being a dog groomer. We were very confident to start our own grooming business after our 6 weeks but Michelle has been on the end of the phone if we have needed her. Highly recommended. x x
I contacted Michelle about the grooming courses she runs having read a good review on the internet and couldn't have been more pleased with my choice. Michelle and Ian have provided me with so much help, advice and guidance throughout the process of setting up my business with their wealth of knowledge of running businesses. Both have guided me throughout much more than I had expected and take a keen interest in their students. Aside from the excellent grooming skills Michelle and her staff have taught me, they have given advice on which equipment I would need right up to planning permission, lease agreements, insurance, and much much more. I would recommend this course highly!
I attended Grooming Tails in 2010 and did the cannine grooming course. For me it has proved to be life changing. I am how can I say, mature and i felt i wanted a change of direction. I searched the internet and gathered information on several grooming courses. I visited three course venues in the north west. the fact that Groomingtails was" one on one" training was my main deciding factor. On visiting GroomingTails I felt completely at ease with the atmosphere and felt that this was the environment in which i would benefit most and i certainly wasn't disappointed. I now have my own business doing something i love. I have only one regret that i didnt do it sooner. I would like to finish by thanking Michelle and Ian for giving me help and encouragement in persuing a lucrative and worthwhile career.
Paul Crighton - Fuerteventura, I Travelled from Fuerteventura to do this course and feel it was well worth it! Michelle gave excellent training, i never felt rushed and was allowed to take my time while i was learning. Any aspect of the grooming i felt i was struggling with Michelle gave me extra advise and practice with it . Michelle and her staff make you feel very at home and comfortable and give excellent tips on buying your equiptment and setting up your own business. If your wanting to do a Dog Grooming course do it with Grooming Tails, I am now about to open my own groomers in the Canary islands thanks to the training and confidence they have given me.
I did my training in 2012. When I first started I felt very nervous but when I met Michelle and the team at GroomingTails Canine Grooming Academy they soon put me at my ease..... I felt I could ask questions and I was actively encouraged to do so.. Michelle and the whole team gave me confidence and explained how to do things in such a way that I felt empowered which worked for me. We all mucked in together and the atmosphere was fantastic. What Michelle does not know about being a professional canine grooming teacher is not worth knowing... Since receiving my certificate I am proud to have started my own small business and I enjoy it very much.. A great big thank you to Michelle and staff good luck to any new students it is well worth doing xx Pam xx
