overviewCourse Overview

This course is ideal for those wanting to embark on a career in dog grooming and pet grooming. Learn all the fundamentals of dog grooming, clipping, trimming, techniques & equipment through our high quality video tutorials.

Pet Grooming is a skill and you need to be trained to do it professionally. Not only so that you can be efficient and do the right thing for your clients, but also so that you don’t inadvertently cause injury to a pet that could result in you being seriously out of pocket, not to mention the “brand damage” it could do.

Dog groomers know that keeping a dog’s coat healthy is one of the most important parts of their job. To do this, groomers must be highly knowledgeable about coat types and breeds. Many different types of dogs will come into the grooming salon, so it is essential to have a strong understanding of dog groups, coat types, and how to properly groom each dog.

From learning the fundamentals of dog grooming to showing you how to successfully start a business this interactive course will provide you a step by step guide to succeed in the industry.

As an added BONUS students are also equipped with a dog grooming kit to practice on at home!
