How it all started
I opened All 4 Paws Dog Grooming Salon in November 2015 after teaching all levels of hairdressing, level 2 barbering and advanced media hairdressing for fifteen years at a number of colleges throughout the Northwest.
In May 2018 I progressed to All 4 Paws Dog Grooming Salon and Academy by becoming a satellite centre for Four Paws Groom School based in Cheshire and Kent.
In July 2020 I progressed again and I am currently a Training Provider for iPet Network.
Offering a range of qualifications
I am currently teaching a variety of dog grooming qaulifications from my salon. I adapt my teaching methods to suit all learning styles and deliver all courses in a structured way, at a pace that suits each learner. All courses are Ofqual regulated apart from our in-house Groom Your Own Dog course.
Hands on grooming experience
All students groom their given dog from start to finish whilst I guide and facilitate including demonstrations, discussion, questions and answers.
There are no exams and all theory is assignment based. I have taught a number of students who have all gone on to start their own successful businesses and I have mentored them throughout this process.
