Curriculum Overview

Dog Grooming School

A Hands-On Program

The instruction of basic and professional dog grooming is a hands-on program, designed with a step by step process to ensure that both the learning student and the pets are safe and secure through each phase of learning. The skill of pet grooming like any other skill is one that requires repetition to achieve quality.

The Training Program

The training program is designed in phases from basic observation and grooming to the full completion of hand scissoring and breed standards. Our goal is to take students all the way through the learning phases and onto planning their own pet grooming business.

One-On-One Training

We understand that every student learns in different ways and at their own pace that is why we prefer one-on-one training with our students to ensure they are given the individual attention needed for them to succeed.

What To Expect

In the first few days students will shadow instructor and instructor’s assistant in the functions of a professional dog grooming salon. Observation is a key element to the learning procedure of pet grooming, breed information and familiarization. Students will be shown; safe ways to handle animals, proper techniques for bathing/ brushing/ drying different coat types, nail clipping, ear cleaning, basic clips on paw pads, sanitary trims, basic body clips, along with learning how to detect skin parasites, skin problems, ear problems, and other common pet related conditions. Students will also go over full equipment training on how to properly use and maintain all supplies needed.

More Advanced Skills
