Keeping your dog looking (and smelling) great is the ultimate gift any pet parent can give to their furry friend. 

Whether you are interested in becoming a dog-groomer, or just want to save money and time by tending to your pet’s hygiene and cosmetic needs yourself, we have the ultimate course for you. Broken down into eight modules and easy steps, you can have your pet looking picture perfect in no time.

Starting with the basics of safety, handling, and hygiene, the course covers brushing, fur trimming, clipping, and even styling based on breed. It includes how to spot and treat conditions and the best techniques for you to safely and lovingly care for a dog.

Award-winning dog groomer Tolo Vicens provides simple video tutorials alongside theoretical study to give you a great grounding in grooming skills. From a French bulldog to a Samoyed, you'll learn how to work with different breeds and build up strong foundational knowledge to give you the confidence to start grooming.

We will have you all set to start your dog grooming journey and keep your pooch looking fresh, clean, and ready for action.
