My role as Head Trainer is to ensure this course is all about you. My goal was to create a course for dog lovers whose ambition was to never leave their dog! At SCDGA we have a proven track record of ensuring all student’s dreams become a reality and all the team here are your cheerleaders from day one.
After completing my A-levels and a Retail Management Degree at Bournemouth University, my love for my King Charles Cavaliers took me on a very different muddy track into the world of dog grooming! I completed my dog grooming training at Kingston Maurward Agricultural College and attended numerous creative seminars and dog grooming workshops in Essex, with my dream in mind to one day open my very own salon. Which in 2016, I did! I opened Canine Design in East Preston and it just went from strength to strength. I soon realised I wanted to start to offer in house training so I could pass on my passion and knowledge to other dog lovers, who like me wanted to work with dogs.
I went on to study and complete my Level 3 in Education & Training certificate. Then I went onto complete The Fundamentals of Education, LGBTQ & Awareness training & Understanding Anxiety. This has given me the confidence to train all students from all backgrounds. I know I have the knowledge and the skills to get the best out of every student so that they complete the course to the best of their ability.
I cannot promise you rosettes after this course, but you will learn the value of winning the hearts and minds for your customers both dogs and humans. You will come out being a safe, gentle, and skilled dog groomer with a good understanding of what will make you a successful business owner in this rewarding industry!
