Original Holly and Hugo's Dog Grooming course was compiled by Tolo Vicens, a professional dog groomer with 20 years experience in the dog grooming industry.

In fact, caring for dogs has been his life’s passion. In his teens, his love for dogs led him to prepare some prime breeds for showing in top competitions in Europe, winning many awards, including an international silver medal from Suerzoo, Zaragosa and from the prestigious Crufts, UK. From Sizoo, Barcelona he was awarded the national gold scissors medal, making him champion in Spain, a silver medal for the poodle category and bronze for his skills in stripping technique.

Excellent feedback which we received from students of the Dog Grooming course motivated us to create a whole suite of courses helping pet owners from around the world to provide expert care to their little furry friends. Tolo was joined by two excellent vets – Pippa Elliot from UK and Deborah Shores from USA to create professional courses which will help you understand things from an animal’s point of view and include safety and first aid procedures.

Holly and Hugo courses are well presented and structured, with clear explanations, pictures and some include video tutorials that help you train in the procedures and techniques you’ll use when looking after many different breeds of dog, cats and other pets.
