15 weeks (4 hours per week)
This course is an introduction to the grooming business on a practical level, enabling you to gain skills in canine grooming and styling at beginner level.
Upon completion of both levels, you will have learnt all of the basic skills required to work as a dog groomer. It is important to practice and perfect your skills, either through work placement or employment within a grooming salon. Previous learners have gone on to start their own dog grooming business.
You should have access to at least 3 dogs of various coat types for the purpose of bathing and preparation.
Please note, Agored Cymru Dog Grooming Levels 2 and 3 can be offered on block as a 15 week course, in which case you are required to book for the two levels prior to commencing the course. When run over 15 weeks, you are required to bring in 6 different dogs of varying coat type.
Whilst the start time of the course is fixed, the end time may vary depending on the amount of homework / research given, and also to ensure all dogs are comfortable.
An Agored Cymru certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.
Following completion of this course, you may be able to progress to the following:
- Understanding the behaviour of dogs
- Canine first aid
- Canine health
- Dog training skills
