Groomed for success
Have you considered dog grooming as a career?
UK dog ownership is at its peak and there’s a nationwide demand for caring and qualified dog-grooming professionals. Dog grooming as a career offers a variety of options, from home-based self-employment, via mobile grooming, to employment within an established dog grooming studio or the potential to set up your own high-street business.
So could a dog grooming career suit you? Assuming you have a love for dogs, you’ll also need patience, mental and physical strength, manual dexterity, empathy and compassion. Professional dog grooming involves so much more than just a bath and a haircut.
City & Guilds level 2 and 3 dog grooming qualifications cover both the theory and practical skills required to groom all dog breed and coat types. From giant to toy breeds, the techniques required to bathe and fluff-dry a curly wool-coated dog such as a bichon frisé in preparation for scissoring, to the art of hand stripping wire-coated breeds such as a border terrier or miniature schnauzer. Breed lines, head shapes, canine health and first aid are all studied, along with industry regulations and legislation. At The Dog House we also offer inclusive business advice including branding, marketing and customer service to help your transition into this new exciting industry.
If this has whet your appetite, The Dog House offers City & Guilds level 2 and 3 training and qualifications in beautiful North Norfolk.
