Sarah and her tutors Carrie and Indra were nothing short of fantastic!  Encouraging, supportive, patiently answering questions and so kind and friendly. Learning to groom dogs is such a big learning curve, one I endeavoured and endeavour to absorb like a sponge. I don’t think I have ever had such an enjoyable learning experience before, an experience that you invest in financially yes, but as a student I really strived to learn as much as possible from the years Sarah has had perfecting her craft, it’s wonderful watching her groom, I hope I can be half as good one day.  Dog grooming the learning doesn’t end only continues, but what a wonderful solid start it was at Four Paws Kent.

I loved the course, learnt so much and feel like I can now move on with a career in dog grooming. Thank you so much to my tutor Sarah, who with her exceptional training and incredible patience, has given me the opportunity to fulfil my dream, I can’t thank you enough.

I began my journey at Four Paws very nervously and not believing in myself having minimal confidence. Thanks to all the staff’s patience when answering them hundreds of questions my confidence grew weekly. Could never of done this course without their patience and commitment to getting me through. Could never thank them enough and don’t want to leave I will miss my time at Four Paws always.

Thank you to Sarah Sturley and the team (Carrie & Indra) for an absolutely brilliant course , for all of the help given throughout from practical skills to theory work advice and everything in between. I can't thank you enough for giving me a confidence boost so that I can achieve what I want in life. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about starting up a dog grooming business.

Lots of information and well delivered. Learnt loads.

I would like to thank the tutors whole heartedly the way you taught was exceptional I never learned well at school and had we of had teachers like you I feel I would have learned so much better.  Thank you also for making me welcome and a warm and positive environment.  All the support also was very much welcomed.

I think Sarah and her staff are great, Sarah is a great tutor very approachable, helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing is too much bother for the team at four paws Kent.

I felt very at ease in the class room and feel I have learnt a great deal of dog grooming skills and I would like to thank Sarah and her team for all of their support throughout.

The course was very enjoyable, I learnt all the skills needed to start my own dog grooming business and have been working to improve on those skills since leaving the course.  Sarah and Carrie were professional at all times but still made the course fun and were both easy to communicate with, they were always to hand when needed and gave good advice.  I have been able to contact Sarah since the practical side of the course finished to ask for guidance with the theory, she has always stated that even after the course has finished, she is happy to be contacted for help or advice which is comforting when a new venture can be quite daunting.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Four Paws Kent, just wish I could have stayed on longer.  Both Sarah and Carrie made me feel very welcome and I feel satisfied that should I need to query something in the following weeks, I can do.  I have learnt an enormous amount and feel proud to have put myself through such a challenge, having worked in the same job for 22 years.  My love of dogs has lead me here and I look forward to continuing to learn more and more about dog grooming.

Thank you Sarah and Carrie.  I just hope I can be nearly as good as you both one day.
