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.

Our instructor has over 17 years of dog grooming experience and is currently working within the field.  She consistently has shown the ability to execute industry standard grooming for a variety of breeds and understands the importance of training students on proper domestic dog handling skills, whether someone has a desire to work in the grooming industry or groom their own pet.

A portion of this class, near the end, will be held at a local grooming facility to better show students examples of a professional setting, equipment, and to obtain hands-on skills.
