Dog Grooming - Launch An Exciting New Career Turning Dirty Dogs Into Clean Canines
Dog Grooming – A Natural Response to that Special Relationship
Despite living in cities and having neighbours literally on the doorstep, more and more of the UK are getting dogs as pets for companionship. The connection between human and canine reaches far back in history and is perhaps the reason why there is such a close and natural bond.
Dogs give so much love and affection and naturally their owners want to give them the best care and attention they can in return.
People often see their dog as a reflection of themselves as a responsible owner and want to make sure their pet is neat, tidy, clean and healthy.
Dog Grooming – Different Breeds Different Needs
Depending on the breed, some dogs need grooming more than others and there's a right and wrong way to do it. That's why there is growing demand for Dog Grooming Professionals (and dog grooming courses) to provide dogs with the proper attention they need and owners with the peace of mind that they are getting the best care for their beloved pet.

How Dog Grooming Promotes Health, Happiness & Builds A Rewarding Career
Did you know becoming a Dog grooming professional is not only beneficial for the dog it can also boost your health, increase your happiness and help you build a fun and very satisfying business too.
Because every owner wants the best for their canine friend, dog grooming is in high demand; this is great news for anyone wanting to start a new career as a dog groomer. But there are a number of different dog grooming courses available and it can be confusing to know which one will be the most suitable.
The 3 essentials you'll want to look for in a dog grooming course to help you make the best choice for you are:
It's important the dog grooming course you choose has been created by those in the dog grooming profession who have experience working with dogs of all breeds, coats and individual needs. This means the course will give you all the knowledge and skills you need including:
- Pet safety
- Coat care
- Dog anatomy and health
- Plus, business skills to run your own dog grooming business
You'll want the dog grooming course you choose to have a good reputation and provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience you need to promote your services. The best dog grooming course is one that is independently recognised and linked to an animal welfare organisation. You can then have confidence the quality of the training you receive will be consistently high.
Any dog grooming course that has been accredited will require the training to have been independently assessed using stringent checks and monitoring before accreditation is awarded.
Some other elements you'll want from your dog grooming course are:
- Tutor support – confidence there's the support when you need it
- Dog grooming career advice – exploring the best options to help you get started
- Study at your own pace – training that fits easily around you
There are different learning options to become a professional dog groomer including:
Intensive dog grooming school
Some training is run through Dog Grooming Schools using intensive methods and is usually over 4-6 days. It requires you to attend the dog grooming school, often staying away from home and can work out very expensive particularly if food and accommodation are not included.
With so much information being taught in such a short space of time, this method of training can be overwhelming and risks less retention of important information. Depending on the level of attendance you may have to wait months for the course to start and with some courses filled to capacity you're less likely to receive the personal support you need.
Dog grooming classes
When starting out it can be tempting to opt for the easiest and quickest way to learn how to become a dog groomer. There are dog grooming classes you can attend and receive a certificate of attendance. A dog grooming class is just for owners to learn how to safely and responsibly care for their dog; it's not to learn how to become a professional dog groomer.
Without the proper training and certification you would not be able to obtain insurance to cover you, the animal and others.
A reputable home study dog grooming course is the best option to provide you with flexible, affordable training to suit your needs. There's no need to travel anywhere or have additional costs because you can simply learn from the comfort of your own home and at a pace that suits you.
With the high cost of travel and other training costs, choosing a home study dog grooming course is the best option because it's much more affordable and you can even choose an easy payment plan to help you spread the cost.
Because you'll have your own personal tutor during your dog grooming home study course you'll have access to friendly and professional help when you need it. Unlike other training methods that expect you to put it altogether, a home study dog grooming course will even give you interview and career support to help you make the most of your training.
And how rewarding for you if you could eventually run your own dog grooming classes in your community to help local dog owners learn how to appropriately manage and care for their beloved best friends.
All this and much more is possible when you choose a professional, reputable and accredited home study dog grooming course.
Starting your own dog grooming business is perhaps the most popular once you've completed your home study dog grooming course but there are other options as well to provide a flexible and very rewarding career for you. It's very simple to get started with varied options depending on your personal circumstances, you could choose a:
- Mobile dog grooming service – you visit people at their homes
- Home based dog grooming - run from home and customers come to you
- Dog grooming shop – you lease a shop or unit for customers to visit you
- Freelance at a Vet / Animal shelter, Grooming parlour – offers variety and flexibility
- Join a business as an employee – regular work but less flexibility
- And any other option that involves you applying your dog grooming training course
Become a dog grooming professional and it'll give endless satisfaction - here's just some of the many benefits it will provide to:
At last they can have a happy healthy and sweeter smelling companion and the peace of mind they've been cared for and expertly treated by a professional dog groomer.
They'll never tire of being handled, touched, stroked and thoroughly cared for – even if they're not so appreciative covered in shampoo suds! Regular trimming, washing, brushing and checking will ensure every one of your canine clients keeps healthy and happy until their next visit!
It's now becoming more widely recognised the health benefits a dog has on a human. Stroking, brushing and overall caring for a dog can have profound effects to lower blood pressure, stress levels, strengthen immune system (meaning less illness such as colds), and many others. That means not only will you love your career, it'll keep you happy and healthy too!
Choose the right dog grooming course to help you enjoy a flexible, fun and very rewarding career as a dog grooming professional.
