How does our Dog Grooming Training work?
Our training courses can be taken on a full time or flexible basis. The first 5 days must be attended in one induction block and these blocks are offered throughout the year. It is an opportunity to learn in a real working professional dog grooming business, alongside our team and gain one of the industry’s top dog grooming qualifications.
If you are new to dog grooming, the initial days of your training will focus on learning the essential handling and preparation skills required to enable you to work with all breeds and coat types. You will learn how to safely bath and dry, understand dog health and welfare and be guided in how to ensure your own health and safety. As your training progresses, you will learn clipping and scissoring skills from everyday pet trims to breed standards, leading to your independent completion of a variety of full grooms.
Every day you are on site with us we will focus on hands on practical learning. You will be provided with theory learning resources and need to be willing to study at home to achieve the knowledge to complement your practical work and accumulate the guided learning hours you will need to complete your chosen iPET qualification.
Every day will present a new learning opportunity. Every member of our team will support and encourage you to realise your maximum potential and prepare you for your new career venture.
We can also offer you an abundance of dog grooming business set up and customer service advice.
