Dog grooming

Businesswoman is the first to get a new dog grooming qualification at Coleg Cambria

TOP BARKS to Judith Anne Evans for being the first Coleg Cambria learner to obtain a prestigious dog grooming qualification.

Judith obtained the City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming at Cambria’s Llysfasi site and looks forward to taking her business to the next level by opening a sales salon and becoming a member of The Groomers Spotlight Directory.

Judith, from Abergele, said her teaching by respected tutor Wendy Murray at the college’s innovative Collar and Comb Academy inspired her to join the popular course.

“I loved my stay in Llysfasi, being there has always been the highlight of my week,” said Judith.

“I enjoyed the convenience and being practical, making sure the dogs were cared for to the best of my ability and cared for to the highest standards.”

She added, “I have dyslexia and found the written work quite difficult, but with Wendy’s support it wasn’t a chore, I enjoyed it.

“I would love to be the best at what I do and even try to become a master groomer one day.

“I have a living room in my garage and a wonderful list of clients and dogs that I groom. The vision is to one day have a salon in my hometown.

“Thanks again to Wendy and the team for all of their help and support, I couldn’t have done it without you.”

Wendy congratulated Judith on her achievement in being the first person to complete the Level 3 qualification.

“This is a great qualification that helps each student reach their full potential and develop skills for grooming dogs to a high standard, with safe practices,” she said.

“I’m proud of all the students who got the qualification, but it was Judith who did it first – she will always keep that title.

“Her work ethic and continued commitment to caring for the dogs she grooms were exceptional and I wish her the best of luck for the future.”
