  • Dog groomers provide bathing and grooming services as well as other care services such as dental hygiene, claw clipping and health checks for ticks and parasites

You need to know how to safely bathe and treat the dogs in your care or risk doing severe or permanent harm to them.

As such, our course to become a dog grooming professional will give you all the knowledge you need to operate your own dog grooming business.
