The full day course with Supergroomers is very informative and it provides essential knowledge for pet owners to take better care of their pet. Apart from that, it also help owners acquire important skills to groom their pet and enhance their well-being. I find that the course is very useful and I will definitely recommend it to people who are concern about the proper grooming of their own pet.

A one day basic grooming course, which was very useful for someone like me who came with zero knowledge about dog grooming. The hands on part was totally interesting. I'm going back with "nothing" to "something". Looking forward to attend more courses in the future.

I attended their Dog Grooming Essentials Course and found the lesson really helpful! Alvin was very professional during the whole course and even helped to point out problems with my dog that I was not aware of before, and even gave suggestions on how to take care of the problem and provide a make up lesson for a part of the class that I was unable to practice. Grateful to Michelle too for her professionalism and knowledge on updating information about grooming. Overall a wonderful experience and worth the time, really happy with the overall course; will highly recommend to my friends and anyone out there who would like to learn more about pet grooming!
