Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce a new series of continuing education classes for students who want to learn professional dog grooming techniques.
Lisa Arstone, owner, and operator of the Doggie Diva Mobile Pet Grooming LLC with over 15 years of dog grooming experience is the instructor for this series. “I’m excited for the opportunity to help students achieve their goal of becoming professional dog groomers,” said Arstone. “It gives me great joy knowing I’m providing students with the skills they need to become reliable, safe, and accountable dog groomers.”
