Drawing on over 40 years grooming experience between our trainers, this course is guaranteed to get you job-ready. We have handpicked the most relevant and useful subject areas to make this course the best foundation possible on which to build your grooming career. With a maximum of 4 students per course, you are guaranteed our absolute attention.



This course has been developed to enable students to understand all aspects of dog grooming as well as the essentials you will need to start up your small business, whether it is a mobile van, grooming from home or a salon.

This course is 80% hands on. Theory is completed partly in-house in a relaxed and informative structure, and there is also work to be completed in your own time.

Scissoring and grooming techniques, maintenance of equipment, breed clips, shampoo advice, skin problems and first aid are examples of the practical skills needed to become a professional dog groomer. We will also advise you on how to set up and develop a basic business and marketing plan for your own business if you like.

An in house certificate of Professional Dog Grooming will be issued upon successful completion of all elements.

We now are offering IPG Track 1 Certification on completion of this Course. IPG is an ongoing learning pathway in the Grooming Industry, and is highly regarded.  Further details are available in our Prospectus.
