Catherines Comments: I fully enjoyed my time at Top Trimz and was very sad to leave.  I left the grooming salon with full confidence in grooming a dog from start to finish.  Marie is a fantastic teacher as at points I struggled but she had the patience of a saint and spent the time with me to make sure I got through any points I was finding difficult.... and as a result I passed with flying colours.  I can honestly say I think she is the best dog groomer I have ever met. xxxxx

At Top Trimz we strive to offer the best possible training to our students.  We only have a maximum of 3 students with us at any one time, which allows each student to have the individual time with the tutor they deserve. Training course prices can vary with each training centre as some will take large numbers of students.  At Top Trimz we focus on quality not quantity.
