Nicki gained her Level 3 City & Guilds Dog Grooming qualifications 6 years ago. Here's why & how she became a Dog Groomer...
She was never fully satisfied in her career choices but eventually found herself in a job that allowed her the flexibility to get her own dog, which was something she'd always longed for since having a family dog when she was a child.
After having her beloved Cockapoo Rocco for about 12 months she realised she wasn't happy with how he looked after being groomed and so she decided to research how to do it herself. This idea then snowballed into her training to become a Professional Dog Groomer.
Nicki decided that if she wanted to fully succeed in this industry and set herself above other groomers, she would need to be
taught by the very best, so she went to train at the multi-award winning Dogs
Delight in London which is one of the highest qualified dog grooming salon's in the country. Whilst there, she learned how to groom many different
breeds to a high standard ranging from pets to show dogs, passing all her qualifications with flying colours.
It wasn't long before she knew she'd found her perfect job.
Training to become a Dog Groomer is not a simple task it requires a lot of time, effort and money and doesn't end once you've passed your exams. Learning and enhancing your skill is on-going, that is why Nicki continues to attend workshops, seminars and grooming competitions outside her working hours.
Here is Nicki's dog Rocco before and after she learnt the art of grooming.
