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, a recent study 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!

This creative and enjoyable course from Cambridge Open College provides masses of information and guidance on the subject. It ensures your proficiency and success in Dog Grooming, and successful completion results in the award of an Endorsed Qualification under Focus Awards’ FQP (Focus on Quality Provision) Scheme.



Written by one of the country’s leading experts on grooming and animal care, the Dog Grooming course is split into a range of exciting units. Packed with the essential tips and insider knowledge that helps you get the best possible head start, our Dog Grooming course is 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 willing to commit can earn serious money.

This fascinating and enriching course delivers in-depth study of the grooming process, the different techniques utilised, and how to style the variety of different dog breeds 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 learn to master the techniques that ensure efficient and considered grooming. After all, no two breeds are the same.

You 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 also give practical advice on setting up your own business as a dog groomer, which is invaluable. Even if you would rather seek direct employment, this advice helps you build up commercial awareness of the industry, as well as business skills and insider knowledge.



The Dog Grooming course has no set entry requirements. We set out to make this course as accessible as possible, and as long as you have a decent standard of education and a passion for this subject, 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 also have a personal tutor allocated to help if you need it.
