    I have just started today so I have yet to find out, but I am so happy there is an online course through the Career Academy to do a dog grooming course as the only institute there is, is in Auckland. I am in Levin, so I am happy to have access to this online course.

    I’m definitely enjoying this course; I’m working with a dog groomer who is training me at the moment so I’m able to apply what I’m learning in the course directly into my work. I really enjoy having the course as well as the practical aspect, as it feels like I am getting a full training experience.

  10. Owen Horn

    I’m on the first topic and it’s going well. Some of it’s easy, some of it’s difficult. No complaints.

  25. Jenny Sharpe

    I decided to enrol with The Career Academy because I needed a course I could do from home. A bit more on grooming dogs would have been invaluable as that’s the field I wish to take but in saying that I really enjoyed learning about the other aspects of this course and looking forward to doing more studies through you, I would like more info packs on dog grooming courses please. Still excellent overall.
