Working with dogs is a highly rewarding career choice. Dogs are very sociable animals and are widely regarded as our best friend. There has been a rapid increase in puppies in the UK, so it comes as no surprise that there is a bigger demand for trained dog groomers.

Dog grooming is a great career path for those looking to work with dogs. Dog owners want their dogs to be happy & healthy, feel comfortable and look their best. Dog groomers need to be trained to provide grooming techniques and styling, whilst being able to create a relaxing experience for dogs.

This iPET Network Level 3 Award in an Introduction to Dog Grooming will give students the skills and knowledge necessary to seek opportunities within the dog grooming sector.

During the course, you will have the opportunity to learn the basic principles of dog grooming including how to prepare, style and finish a variety of dog coats along with an introduction to the health and safety requirements of a dog grooming salon. There are 5 days of practical training included in this course where students will gain hands-on training and experience at a reputable dog grooming school.

Once you have completed your qualification and practical training, you will have the skills and experience needed to apply for dog grooming job opportunities.

Developing Your Career

Working as a dog groomer is an extremely popular career choice for many animal enthusiasts and highly rewarding. It is essential that a fully trained dog groomer is confident and skilled in their approach to provide optimal care to the dogs during the grooming experience. Once you are qualified, you will have the confidence to seek roles within the sector. You may choose to enhance your career by completing further canine-related qualifications.

This Ofqual regulated qualification has been expertly created specifically for anybody wishing to become a professional dog groomer, or for people who may already work within the industry but do not yet hold a nationally recognised Ofqual regulated qualification.
