July 2012

I signed up on a four week cat grooming course with Pet Universe after originally going on a week-end course elsewhere and quickly realising that I had hardly scratched the surface on the information and hands on experience needed to become a professional cat groomer.

The Best Tutors of Pet Universe International Cat and Dog Grooming School with their StudentsSvetlana has been the best teacher I could ever have asked for. She leaves no stone unturned in giving her students a wealth of information not only on the grooming side but also on the cats health, cat behavioural advice and aspects on running a successful business. Svetlana’s friendly and direct approach put me at ease from day one and
I was welcomed as part of the team straight away.

This course also gives you the unique chance to see how a professional grooming parlour is run which I personally found to be invaluable and which I am certain will help me in how I approach my own business and the clients and situations I will have to deal with daily.

The course covers all aspects of grooming, including clipping, bathing, handling techniques as well as knowing how to read a cat’s posture and vocal ‘chatterings’ so that you can work in harmony as much as possible through-out the grooming process. You get to practise daily on 2-3 cats all of whom have different personalties, different coats, different requirements.

No day is the same and the experience I gained was worth every penny.

I would say to anyone considering a one to one course with Pet Universe and thinking it may be too expensive – Invest in your business and learn from Svetlana, a master cat groomer, in an environment that lends itself to what you will be doing in the future. I Couldn’t have asked for a better teacher, a genuine cat lover, and one that really cares about her students and gives her all to make sure the students learn everything they need to go off and be as successful as her.
