Okay, I may just gabble on here and make no sense, but this is because I am extremely worried at this moment in time. So... Ever since I was little I knew dogs was my future and career. Now I have selected dog grooming as my specialisation, because it is hands on with dogs, fun activity, although definitley difficult, and when you finish a sense of real achievement and pride in your work. My GCSE's are coming up soon I am not predicted the best grades, this is through fault of my own However the college course for Dog grooming which I wish to attend only needs basic maths and basic english and a general knowledge of dogs. Sorted. However, the prospectus hasn't been sent out yet and I need a plan B. So there is another place I can go and dad is also going to ask a friend of his if she could take me on for work experience. So hopefully one of these plans will happen for me! If not does anyone else haven any suggestions on what to do? Or how they went about it? Another worry I have is my age. Alot of people who enter this industry are ALOT older than me. I am worrying this will effect my chances of getting a job, seeing as its slim pickings as it is for this career choice. Will this be a problem? Also will my GCSE's and dog grooming certificate be enough to get me a job? Thanks in advance and sorry if I come across thick....I'm just panicking!
