I started the Level 2 course with no knowledge of how to safely and properly bath, dry or groom a dog. The tutor, is very knowledgable and passionate about dogs and he shares his knowledge calmly and patiently, guiding us through the process each week. The course is very hands-on, so I’ve gained lots of experience of bathing and drying dogs, as well as having done some clipping and trimming, taking us a bit further than the course requires. I think this is great as we get a taste of what it will be like to do the Level 3 course and what is involved in being a full groomer.
What I’ve enjoyed the most is having the opportunity to work on breeds of dog that I’ve only ever seen on television – such as the Komondor and the Deerhound.
The course has also provided us with knowledge of applicable laws, health and safety, how to clean equipment and the salon, different parasites and skin conditions we might come across and also handling techniques for different temperament and physical need of the dog.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone serious about learning to groom a dog. I am hoping to move on to the Level 3, to support me in opening up my own dog grooming business.
