We do this by providing them a range of specialist help and support.

This is a sneak peek behind the scenes to give an idea of some of the help and support that we have available around the country for our Pet Groomers. You won’t be surprised to know (especially because of Covid) we can give a lot of remote help and assistance.
So you now know that the people you rely on for fantastic advice and support also have a great backup team!
