Dog Grooming

Introduction to Dog Grooming
teaches students basic grooming techniques that will be useful in student’s dog grooming careers or with their own dog. Students will meet in both the classroom and a grooming facility during this course. The main objectives students will learn are different breeds of dogs and their coats, the basics of dog anatomy, basic dog psychology, pet first aid, and how to use common tools for pet grooming. Students will be able to be hands on and learn how to properly bathe, brush, and dry dogs in a grooming facility while also practicing de-matting, disinfecting ears, eye care, nail trimming, and dental care.

The class is taught by Lisa Arstone, who has over 15 years of dog grooming experience and is the owner/ operator of the Doggie Diva Mobile Pet Grooming LLC that services our local community.

Lisa Arstone says, “I’m excited to help students achieve their goal of becoming professional dog groomers. It will give me great joy knowing that I’ve done my part to provide students with the proper skill sets needed to become reliable, safe and accountable dog groomers.”

The program is half classroom and half lab. Tuesdays are in the classroom setting and Thursdays are on site at Ali’s K9 Clip dog grooming facility at 17th Street & College Road.
