What students have to say about Holly and Hugo

  • The course has given me the confidence to groom own dogs better and I now know which order to clip and how to use the tools in a more confident way. The whole way the course is set up is very easy to navigate and check on your progress.

    Joanne Coulter, (England)
  • I got to learn more about animals psychology, and it gave me more confidence in the knowledge I already had. I liked the neat layout and the well-written lessons.

    Farrah Porter, (USA)
  • The courses gave me a good understanding of why certain animals behave how they do which is very useful since I help run an animal shelter I liked the length that I had to complete the courses and the available options to do so with my busy schedule. I've recommended Holly and Hugo courses to many friends
