The level 3 Certificate in Dog Grooming and Intro to Styling course introduces all aspects of commercial dog grooming and sets a good foundation of understanding for anyone looking to embark on a career in dog grooming. We have a large client base for student dogs made up of a variety of breeds. The course includes a starter scissor set and is 15 days long (9am-4pm), which can be done intensively or one day a week. After a few days of theory you will groom two dogs a day so by the end of the course you will have groomed around 20 dogs in total. Certificates are awarded on completion of the course once two practical assessments have been passed. For anyone wishing to continue onto the diploma, the course length and cost can be deducted from the diploma in some cases.

Each student will receive a starter scissor set to use throughout their training and to keep afterwards. We offer every student the opportunity of work experience as a dog grooming assistant in our salon after they’ve qualified. This is optional and isn’t a requirement for the course but is an opportunity for further experience before you embark on your new career.
