About your Course

Dog groomers need to have a comprehensive understanding of the animals they work with. This will allow them to excel in the service they provide. As well as being able to identify potential health issues, benefitting the dog's overall health and wellbeing.

Getting qualified as a dog groomer gives you the required skill set you need to work with dogs of all breeds. This includes animal first aid, health and anatomy. As well as proper grooming techniques and best practices.

Dogs who are regularly groomed tend to be happier, healthier and feel more comfortable day-to-day. So, the ability to identify possible health issues and understand proper grooming is something pet owners hold in high regard.

Getting Started

This diploma in dog grooming is one of the most well-rounded qualifications available, providing you with in-depth information on grooming, treatments and care for dogs.

An ideal qualification for anyone without previous experience who wants to start working with dogs and even start their own business.
