          Here are just a few of what our students had to say about Leicester Academy Dog Grooming.


an01231_ Top Marks for the best groomer ever!........29/01/2010

Looking for a reputable groomer...Look no further!!! I have used Fran for 2 years now and she is definitely an expert in what she does. Max my cairn terrier comes home looking like an award winning show dog and smells gorgeous every time. Such an easy service to use, he gets picked up and dropped off at a time that suits me. I have never known someone so passionate about dogs which show in the grooming and care she gives. Fran has also taught me how to care for Max’s coat in-between grooms to keep him in tiptop condition at no extra cost. I would highly recommend Francine if you are looking for an exclusive professional service. Your dog will be in safe hands! Sue

I would thoroughly recommend the course presented by Francine at Leicester Academy Dog Grooming. Francine is a highly professional groomer and an excellent coach giving specific advice in the criteria I shall be working. The course was diverse and although intensive was not over demanding. In my view it represented excellent value for money, Francine offers continued support and advice after the course and I am highly advantaged to have been trained by her. I would certainly recommend Leicester Academy Dog Grooming to anyone who wishes to enter the industry. Angela

I have recently completed the three week course with Francine at Leicester Academy Dog Grooming which I must say was brilliant. I would recommend the course to anyone who is looking to start their own dog grooming business. Francine was so helpful and professional and a great teacher. The variety of different breeds that I was able to groom was great. Francine’s salon was very relaxing and friendly to work in. Thanks again. Rachel

I have just completed this excellent course, and would recommend it without hesitation to anybody wishing to set up their own dog grooming business. Francine is a joy to work with, and in her busy and friendly salon, you learn not only to groom to a high standard, but to handle dogs of all breeds and temperaments safely. Francine gives out great work folder which you add to as you work through the course, steadily gaining knowledge as you go! She is calm and professional, but great fun to learn with, at the end of the course I really felt I had made a friend. I also know I can phone her if I need more advice or support as my business begins. I can also recommend the very comfortable accommodation provided for students like myself who do not live locally. The grooming starter pack I received was great and Francine also arranged for a groomer sales van to call so I could discuss other grooming products and equipment for my salon. I was sorry to leave and am sure if Francine were ever to advertise for groomers to work there she would be inundated with past students. Thank you again Francine. Sally

I have recently completed the 3 week intensive course in the expert hands of Francine. I completely recommend this course to anyone wishing to fulfil their dream of becoming a dog groomer and setting up their own business. There are a huge variety of dog breeds entering the salon weekly allowing you to gain so much hand’s on experience each day. You will learn all aspects from bathing and drying, combing and clipping, scissor work and more! Not forgetting the all important theory side, with excellent handouts and work folder. Every day is fulfilling and challenging with step by step guidance throughout. Francine creates a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in what can be a very challenging environment, helping you to relax and concentrate as you learn each new skill. You could not wish for a more helpful and professional person to train you, and the dogs look amazing when they leave. The last day is the hardest as you want to stay forever, though the certificate and grooming starter pack you receive are fantastic and really helps you make a start on a new venture in life! It really is 3 weeks of heaven. Thank you Francine for changing my life!!! Sue xxx


an01231_ Christopher and Tanya......7/09/2009

I spent 3 weeks in Leicester training. Me and my partner were welcomed by Francine; she taught me all I need to know about dog grooming and more. She was very professional and helpful and I am now on my way to starting my own business. I would recommend Francine to anyone seeking grooming courses, she knows what she’s doing and the dogs look brilliant. I had an enjoyable time staying with her and the course was great. Thank you Chris


an01231_ Best 3 weeks of my life so far......14/08/2009

Well I originally enquired about Francine’s courses in March. At that stage I was putting together my business plan so I could approach the bank to help me fund my business. Francine was very helpful from the start. She gave me all the information I needed to put the plan together and by April I had my funds. I went on the course in June and I am now starting my own business “Sweeney Dogs” I have had a break from grooming now for 8 weeks, however from the fantastic training I received, I feel confident enough to just get back into it. The course itself was very thorough and the variety of breeds and sizes I was able to see was brilliant. I too had never groomed before this, but from day one I was bathing and clipping!!!! It is a very hand’s on course but also the theory side is very detailed too. I had a fab time every day with Francine and the dogs, and was gutted when my 3 weeks was up!!!! However I still keep in touch with her and I know that she is only a phone call away and always will be. Thank you so much Fran for all your help through and after the course. I can’t wait to get started and will keep you posted on how it’s going. To everyone who is looking at this and wanting to go on a course, look no further!!! You will not regret going with Francine and you too will have the best 3 weeks...... great lunches, great music and lots of fun whilst your working, what more can you want from a course. Thanks again Fran.....Carmel xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


an01231_ Brilliant.............24/07/2009

I did Francine’s 3 week intensive grooming for a living course and it was fantastic! Francine makes you feel so welcome and it’s great to learn from someone who is so fantastic at their job. I would recommend this course to anyone. I myself had no experience whatsoever in dog grooming. All I knew was that I loved dogs no matter how big or small and wanted to work with them! Francine taught me everything from the very basics so that now 3 weeks on I am ready to open “Doggy Style Grooming Studio” and feel totally confident in every aspect of grooming. Worth every penny! Thank you so much Francine. Nikki Hawkins xxxx
