The company revived the award at a Covid-safe presentation at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire.
iPET Network designs qualifications with the “welfare of the animal in mind”, and courses range from high level dog grooming, to emergency canine first aid, to pet sitting.
All of iPET Network’s qualifications are regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
Fern Gresty, director at iPet Network, said: “We are so happy to have been nominated, and then to have won this award. iPET Network courses are so important as they teach new and existing dog groomers and animal professionals’ best practice, and how to be safe in their workplace.
“When customers take their pets to an animal service they are handing over a member of their family, and qualified service providers understand how much of a responsibility this is, and how to do the very best job.”
