ENDORSED QUALIFICATION AT LEVEL 3

Great with dogs? Passionate about styling? Our brand new Dog Grooming course may be the perfect choice for you.

It’s no secret that owners love their dogs. In fact, in a recent study, it was revealed that most dogs’ diets were more than 40% healthier than those of their respective owners! It is unsurprising to note that dog owners are just as concerned about their dog’s appearance. It’s no wonder the dog grooming industry in this country is booming!

COURSE OVERVIEW

Written by one of the country’s leading experts on grooming and animal care, the Dog Grooming course is split into a range of different and exciting units, which you will find detailed if you click on the ‘Modules’ tab above. Packed with the essential tips and insider knowledge that will help you get the best possible head start, our Dog Grooming course is proving highly popular.

If you love animals and have an interest in this area, few careers are as rewarding and fun as a career in dog grooming. And, because the pet care sector is one of the few that continues to grow, in spite of the on-going recession, it’s easy to see why individuals can earn serious money if they are willing to commit.

This fascinating and enriching course will provide an in-depth study of the grooming process, the different techniques utilised, and how to style the variety of different dog breeds that you are likely to come across. From the short, wiry coat of a Yorkshire terrier to the long, luxurious pelt of the Afghan hound; you will learn to master the techniques that will ensure efficient and considered grooming. After all, no two breeds are the same. You will even study the different temperaments you are likely to encounter, and more importantly; how to manage them.

In the later stages of the course, we will also give practical advice on setting up your own business as a dog groomer, which can prove truly invaluable. Even if you would rather seek direct employment, this advice will help you build up commercial awareness of the industry, as well as business skills and insider knowledge.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

You will be amazed to learn that the Dog Grooming course has no set entry requirements. We wanted to make this course as accessible as possible, and as long as you have a decent standard of education and a passion for this area, you are very welcome to apply. We supply a study guide to each new student to help you make the most of your time with us, and you will also have a personal tutor on hand to help you, if you require any assistance.
