What some of our past participants say
I jumped at the chance when I came across the basic dog care and grooming essentials workshop on facebook and immediately signed up.

Having been in the vet nursing industry for close to three years, I was looking for a short course to take to improve my skills and widen my knowledge in pet care.

Although I already had been taught in the clinics about restraining and handling methods, I learned from Desmond that there were other more efficient methods in restraining and handling dogs without causing much stress to them.

My biggest challenge I felt, was definitely nail clipping, especially black nails, but Desmond assured me that it comes with practise and in time to come, it will be a breeze. I am glad to say that I have been honing my skills at the clinic and I have definitely been a lot more confident in this area of dog grooming.

All in all, I found the workshop to be extremely informative and the environment conducive to learn and practise in. I thoroughly enjoyed the two day workshop with my Pug, Bruno and  I would definitely encourage anyone interested in basic pet care to take up this course, or even to bring your pet down to Bubbly Petz to get them groomed; as Desmond and his entourage of professional pet groomers will give them the best star treatment!
