The 5 day course offers students the opportunity to learn basic dog grooming under the expert guidance of our tutors. It is designed as a practical hands-on course, enabling students to participate in the day to day running of a busy grooming environment. 

The course is aimed at those who are keen to learn more about grooming a small number of different breeds. Whilst this course teaches the basics of dog grooming, it is insufficient for anyone looking to set up their own salon. Please refer to our 25-day courses if you are looking to open your own dog grooming business. No previous qualifications or experience are necessary to complete this course. 

The first day will start with a health and safety induction, along with a tour of the facilities. During each day of the course, you will have the opportunity to groom various breeds of dogs. Equipment and grooming top will be provided for use on the day. Students are welcome to bring their own equipment.

This course can be undertaken on a flexible basis, ranging from one day a week to a block of five days. 

The course will cover a variety of key dog grooming principles including:-

– The correct handling of dogs

– How to recognise health problems

– Brushing, de-matting and bathing

– Basic clipping and trimming
