Our tuition is done at our Micro Boutique in Zillmere,
North of Brisbane, Queensland
I came to A Gentle Clip from a different industry with absolutely no grooming experience, the tuition gave me all the skills necessary to turn my passion for animals into a career. I now run my own dog grooming business and will always cherish my time with A Gentle Clip. I will also never forget the friendships formed with the wondeful staff whilst undergoing the tuition Nicola
My name is Stacey and I have just completed the 10 week grooming course at 'A Gentle Clip'.
First of all I would like to thank all the staff there for making me feel so very welcome.
They are a fantastic team to learn from and groom with, always taking time to help each other,
and teach you what they know. I learnt so much in ten weeks, that now I am ready to groom
on my own, no problem! I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to play with puppies,
and learn how to make them look absolutely beautiful... Thanks again team...
I'm going to miss you all!
