Working with animals has always been a popular career route, but now we are seeing a huge boom in other animal roles. With an increase of grooming salons popping up on high streets, there are now more job opportunities to work with dogs.

Dog grooming is a career choice that is both rewarding and highly sort after. A Dog groomer gets to care for a broad range of dogs. It is a versatile career choice for anyone who enjoys the company of dogs and wants to be proactive in improving their physical health.

However, many aspiring animal professionals are unaware that in fact, the animal sector is highly regulated and requires you to provide evidence of appropriate training and experience in that specific field. Any reputable dog grooming professional will undergo the regulated training to be able to handle animals safely and provide them with the appropriate care.

This iPET Network Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming and Salon Management will give learners the necessary knowledge and skills to become a qualified dog-groomer or open their own dog-grooming business.

This comprehensive course combines theory learning around Dog Grooming and the Management of a Dog Salon with practical, hands-on experience with trained canine professionals.

You will gain a wealth of knowledge and skills by studying and practising dog grooming techniques, canine first aid, canine welfare and the skills required to manage a small canine business.

Your passion for animals paired with the knowledge gained from this course can lead you to an exciting new profession in the dog grooming sector.
