Training you for a career in Dog Grooming


Knowing how to handle a dog or cat is as important as knowing how to groom them.  Incorrect handling can make the job difficult, stressful or even impossible to complete.  Correct techniques and recognising the body language of the dog and responding with positive corrective signals is possible with Happy-Paw UK techniques.
