I have just completed a dog grooming course at Mutleys grooming school and it's been a totally amazing experience. i learnt so much in such a short space of time and covered both practical and theory. Micheal is fantastic and will help in any way she can to make sure you achieve your goal. For anyone thinking of doing a dog grooming course I can really recommend Mutleys.

Can Rover Come Over

Wick Farm Cottages, Church Rd, Layer de la Haye, Colchester CO2 0EW, UK – 07787 129617

What can I say about Tracy? She honestly is our fairy godmother! She is so reliable, flexible and great at what she does. Sending our dog to Tracy's daycare is honestly the best decision I have ever made! Not only is it an amazing daycare but also offers a great grooming service!!! Our dog Apollo won't even let us brush him! But he actually enjoys going to her grooming salon! And he comes out looking and smelling amazing!!!! I highly recommend using can rover come over to anyone!!!!!

Tracy has looked after my gorgeous cockapoo Herbie for nearly 4 years now with daycare, walks, grooming and overnight & holiday stays. I am sure he feels like its his second home! Tracy is brilliant with him, he loves being cared for by her and I would highly recommend all her services.
