The Training Schedule section below shows you just what a fascinating and absorbing course this is. It provides you with an in-depth study of the grooming process, the techniques required and their application to the huge variety of coats you are likely to encounter across the hundreds of dog breeds. From the short wiry coat of the Yorkshire Terrier to the long luxurious pelt of the Afghan Hound; all require different techniques, different tools and an understanding of various temperaments of the different breeds. 

The Professional Dog Grooming course maps a number of units of the City and Guilds qualification and is a natural progression route for learners who wish to proceed down this path. Further information will be available at the end of training.

Support

All training and practical tasks will be carried out at all times under the close supervision of a qualified Tutor.  Your Tutor is there to support you and assist you through this course.

Assessment

Assessment of each learner will be carried out during each day and at the end of the course.  Written feedback and a grade of either pass, merit or distinction will be awarded.  The grade achieved will be written onto the completion certificate.  This will be sent out after training is completed and all written tasks completed and handed in.

All activities will have accompanying written text given to the learner.  A homework task will be set at the end of every day and must be handed in the next training day.

The grooming DVDs are a very important learning aid.  We expect all students to watch them at least twice during their training course.

All students must photograph their practical work before and after the task and the day’s activities written up.  This forms a useful portfolio for their future use and also acts as evidence of their training.  This is especially important should they wish to undertake City and Guilds qualifications.
