Overview

In a recent study, it was found that most dogs' diets were more than 40% healthier than those of their owners. People really do love their animals in this country, and most rarely even think about justifying what they spend on them. Dogs are as different in character as humans.

From assertive and bold to the timid and shy. The course explains how to recognise the dog's character and psychology, and how to deal with it; essential skills in any professional animal handler. You will also be guided on an exploration of the unique relationship and bond between humans and dogs. “Man's best friend" has deep-rooted history, which is itself interesting, and will give you a stronger insight into why we are, as a species, so heavily dependent on our canine friends.

It sounds crazy, but apart from their mortgage or car payments, their dogs receive the benefit of most owners' disposable income! And here's another very interesting fact, which ties directly into this.

Pet Care (and Pet Products) is one of the few growing sectors in the UK economy today.

FANTASTIC NEWS FOR YOU!

Our brand-new Dog Grooming Distance Learning Course is perfectly placed to get you started in a rewarding new career in animal care. It has been written by one of the country’s leading experts, and is packed with useful and valuable insider knowledge that will give you a real head start as a Dog Groomer.

It gives anybody who has owned a dog, and understands what goes into making that animal happy and healthy, an outstanding opportunity to build on that knowledge and start earning serious money in the Pet Care sector, whether they want to work for somebody else or set up in business on their own.

A glance at the titles of the individual modules (click the ‘Course Outline’ tab above) shows you just what this fascinating and absorbing course is about. It gives you “exactly what it says on the tin” - an in-depth study of the grooming process, the techniques required, and their application to the huge variety of coats you are likely to encounter across the literally hundreds of dog breeds. From the short, wiry coat of the Yorkshire terrier to the long and luxurious pelt of the Afghan hound; all need different techniques, different tools, and an understanding of the highly variable temperaments of the different breeds.In addition to the main object of the course, to teach you how to groom all breeds of dog as quickly and efficiently as possible, we also give significant advice on setting up your own business as a dog groomer, which is invaluable if that's the reason for taking the course, but is also useful in building up a bank of commercial knowledge and business skills which you can apply anywhere.

COURSE MATERIALS

Why did you become a dog groomer?

I have always looked after and trained dogs; when I was a child, my parents used to take our dogs to shows and I used to love help getting them ready – bathing and brushing them. I also did some work experience at our local dog groomer’s, where I was able to help groom different breeds of dog, all with a variety of coats.

What do you do each day?

As a dog groomer you would first need to discuss with the owner what they would like and any handling requirements. It is important to check the dog thoroughly first for any sore areas, or for issues such as fleas or parasites. If there is an issue which prevents you from being able to groom a dog, it is important that you discuss this with the owner, and refer them to their vet if necessary.

Treatment would involve shaping the dogs coat, shampooing and drying them and giving a final trim. You may also be required to clip a dog’s nails and clean their teeth and ears.

What hours would I work?

Dog groomers typically work Monday – Saturday, although if you were self-employed, you would obviously be able to set your own hours. Many work around 35 hours per week.

What can I expect to earn?

Dog groomers earn around £12,000 - £18,000 a year.

Self-employed dog groomers often charge anywhere between £25 and £70 an hour depending on the treatment being given and breed of dog.

Did you know animal owners spend more on their pets than they do in any area of household expenditure other than food? If you're a dog lover, you'll completely understand what I'm talking about
The majority of dog owners we’ve spoken to would rather cut down food, cigarettes and alcohol than allow their pets to suffer discomfort, or go without their treats.
