Hi my name is Helen Higgins, I started my training with Amanda in August 2022 at the age of 59!!

Amanda has been an amazing tutor always on hand to help wether it be with you course work or just to ask advice about some of the breeds I groom. She has given me the support and encouragement to do this for myself running Dapper Dogs for that Pawfect groom. I am so pleased I found Amanda I couldn’t have done it without her.

Fantastic course, I groomed a huge variety of dogs and the support from my tutor was amazing - she really does go above and beyond for her students

I now run my own business and couldn’t be happier! I would urge anyone thinking about becoming a dog grooming to just do it! I wish I’d done it years ago!’
