A word from our students

  • Tilly-Holden-The-Wagg-Club

    "I joined my training with Sarah in May and it was the best decision I made! Sarah is so down to earth, very knowledgeable and a great laugh. She was able to teach me to a high standard of dog grooming and continues to offer support when needed. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a career in dog grooming!".
    Tilly Holden - The Wagg Club

  • Hannah-Buckthorpe-Vanity-Fur

    "Sarah was a fantastic teacher, she taught us so much and was so attentive, always making sure we were 100% confident before setting up on our own. I have now set up self employed and I am loving it. Sarah continues to support you after the course is finished as she is just a text away. She is always more than happy to be of assistance’".
    Hannah Buckthorpe - Vanity Fur

  • Louise-Hayley-Doggie-Doodles

    "I cant thank Sarah enough for teaching me the art of dog grooming and being there when I had a problem and I texted her a picture. The answer came straight back and I could breathe again. I am well on the way to building my business now. So glad I made that initial step".
    Louise Hayley - Doggie Doodles

  • Marian-Sharrier-The-Gentle-Groomer

    "I couldn't ask for a nicer trainer in Sarah Fowler. She is very approachable, kind, patient and positive and she has been very flexible with me, which has been very helpful. I feel that having personal training has been very beneficial as Sarah has been able to work with me around my way of learning. Sarah has also been very supportive outside of the training days by being available by text or phone when I have had any moments of worry before grooming a dog on my own and whilst I gained confidence in myself. The course has prepared me for starting my own business and I would definitely recommend Sarah if you want to learn how to be a good dog groomer".

    "At 48 I decided to take a new career path and follow my passion to work with dogs. I found Sarah's course and knew straight away it was just what I needed to start my journey.

    Dog grooming is a real skill and there are many elements to learn. Sarah taught me all I needed to know to enable me to set up my own business. If you love dogs, I highly recommend this course, the hands on approach from the start was just right for me. Sarah is truly authentic; her personality and coaching skills are brilliant and she always helped me through any areas I struggled with and gave me confidence every step of the way. 

    I can’t thank Sarah enough for helping me on my journey to really loving what I do now. Sarah gives ongoing support to all her students and is just a text away".

    "I thoroughly enjoyed the training with Sarah and her team at South Coast Dog Grooming Academy. They made me welcome from the very start, put me at ease and always encouraged me to do well. Sarah made training fun but also ensured we were fully clued up when it came to health and safety, dog handling and all the aspects of practical dog grooming.

    I would absolutely recommend Sarah, I have left with a mountain of knowledge and grooming skills that have allowed me to start my own business with clients straight away. I was sad when the course finished as I had enjoyed it so much but also very excited for my future. All of Sarah’s team are wonderful and helped me in some way which I am true my grateful for."
