Join Alyson Who Became a Professional Pet Groomer

After completing her Pet Grooming Course Alyson followed her dream and opened her own salon called Scrub Woofers. She was really nervous that she wouldn't get any clients, but after just a couple of weeks she had to give up her part time job because she was running out of space for all her clients!

The first few weeks were a steep learning curve, with her confidence growing by the day. She was soon doing breed specific grooms and getting through her clients much faster. She even started receiving tips from happy customers.

Start today from just $25 per week!
