Elise Nunn - Dog Grooming
“I made some great friends and it was such a supportive group. It was just like going to work, rather than being in a classroom. This environment really built my confidence up, as it provided a fantastic insight into what it would be like to work professionally in dog grooming. I’d recommend it to anyone!”
