Online Dog Grooming Course

Being a dog groomer is an exciting and rewarding job for those who have a passion and a love for dogs. This course offers you the chance to study for a new career at your own pace.

It is an ideal course for those who wish to work as a groomer part time or for those who wish to make dog grooming their full time occupation. 

Dog grooming is not just for show dogs. Many owners wish to have their dog groomed regularly to keep their hair cut short and neat or to remove heavy and thick coats. Others will only require a nail trim, ear clean or just a refreshing bath for their beloved pet. 

The dog grooming diploma teaches you the basic requirements that are needed to start your own dog grooming business.

You will be learning about the essential pieces of equipment that are required and how to use them properly. You will study the step by step procedures of inspecting a dog, brushing the coat to remove unwanted hair, clipping or using scissors, bathing, drying and finishing. Each step has photographs and diagrams to assist in your learning and understanding. 

You will gain a knowledge which enables you to perform basic health checks of the dogs. You will be looking for fleas, ticks, infections, cuts, grazes and any other minor issues. The course teaches you how to greet and approach a dog and discuss the requirements the owner has. 

This online course explains the several techniques that are used on different breeds of dogs and how to perform these techniques to achieve the desired look. You will be studying the use of clippers, scissors and other implements which cut or remove the hair. 

The final module of the dog grooming course gives you a detailed explanation on how to start up your business as a dog groomer, the legal requirements that are necessary and information on health and safety issues. You will gain knowledge on how to design a business plan and understand the pros and cons of starting up a business, gain understanding on how to advertise your business and where to work from.

By the end of this course you will have gained knowledge on how to greet a dog and understand its behaviour. You will know how to prepare it for grooming, perform the essential procedure required for grooming, know how to start up and run your own business successfully and how to advertise your business.
