Over the 24 days we will teach you everything from the basics of bathing and drying right through to become a professional Level 3 qualified dog groomer.

Our course focus’s heavily on practical grooming in a working salon. Our aim is to teach you grooming as it would be in a real salon, and prepare you for running your own business one day. 

 

The course is broken down into the following elements:

 

  • Learn how to safely prepare and bath your dogs
  • Various drying techniques taught for different coats and undercoats
  • Handling and dealing with various canine temperaments
  • Practicing your customer service skills, taking in clients, discussing requirements and making sure they come back time after time
  • Preparing your dogs for the next stage of grooming - brushing, nail clipping, cleaning ears, dematting

 

Once you are fluent in the above the below elements will be introduced:

 

  • Different clipping techniques
  • Different styles for the various breeds
  • Knowing your tools, blades and scissors for the right groom

 

The above will then be practiced with various breeds being offered to learn the different grooms and what can be offered to the clients, practice, practice, practice. Once your confidence has grown the below elements will be added:

 

  • Introduce scissoring feet and legs
  • Blending with clippers and thinners
  • Discuss and talk through head shapes ready for the final stages of the course

Again plenty of practice in what you have already been taught with the main focus being on finishing touches, blending lines, scissoring and looking at head shapes and choosing the right style and grooming yourself.

The remainder of the course will be putting all the above into practice.

 

Towards the end of the 24 days both written and practical assessments will be carried out on various elements that you have been taught.
