What's it all about?

Anywhere that there are people, there will be dogs. The relationship between our two species is growing ever stronger and the dog breeds that we favour need regular care and consistent grooming.  There are simply not enough qualified dog groomers to meet dog owner’s needs, which provides an opening in the market.  This is exactly why, when qualified as a dog groomer, your future is bright.

"I've always wanted to work for myself, tho as we move and travel a fair bit I wanted a job that would be able to move with me, and also something I could do from home as we were planning to start a family. I met a lady on my travels who was a groomer and decided that's what I wanted to do. It ticked all the boxes, plus I get to work with my favourite animal- dogs! So here I am, diploma finished, a 10 month old bub, and working from home running my own business. Ive had the business registered since the end of October and each week is getting better and better. It's crazy how quickly your confidence grows once you start doing a few dogs consistently each week" - Nicole

A profession as a qualified dog groomer is one of the most rewarding things that a dog lover can develop. This qualification will literally give you options that you may never have considered. Whether your future takes you into employment, self-employment or results in you becoming the owner of a vast chain of dog grooming establishments is up to you.

By the end of the course you could find yourself:

  • Working at home in a specifically designed grooming area.
  • Working as a mobile groomer in your own specialist adapted van.
  • Working in a salon with other qualified groomers.
  • Opening your own salon.

Each of the above possibilities are covered in this course along with everything else that you could possibly need to know.

This Diploma course is a definitive, highly detailed, dog grooming course designed specifically for people that need flexible learning who cannot commit to a classroom course such as at Tafe or conduct practical learning on someone else’s timescale.

We believe that education of great quality should be available to anyone who wants to learn. Yet we know that studying for a new career can be time consuming and expensive. Which is exactly why we have developed this course, helping you to change your life.  By teaching you a brand new skill at an affordable price you will gain all the confidence that you need in order to successfully make dog grooming your lifestyle.

Vibe Learning brings you invaluable professional guidance from our industry expert tutor without the unnecessary structure or timetable of traditional classroom courses.

What Will I Learn?

This Dog Grooming course includes twelve modules which carefully take you through the qualification.  You will learn everything from breed grooming tricks, calming signals and canine health problems to shaping the perfect Poodle pompom.

The course is assessed using the following activities:

  • 12 revision quizes
  • 12 (optional) practical tasks
  • 4 formal short answer assignments 

Each module contains step by step learning. You will be taught everything that you need to know about dog handling, behaviour and professional dog care inclusive of first aid and crucial illness awareness. Each stage in your learning will build on the last one in a style that leaves you wondering how you managed to learn so much, so quickly.

Each of the practical and progressive steps are designed to build your skill and confidence as you study. We leave no learning stone unturned whilst giving you the exact skill set to step right into your new life.

The course is designed with student development in mind. We do not just give you a book and expect you to become a dog groomer from it, as some online learning certainly does. We work with you to develop skills and capability that you need to confidently sell your services as a groomer.

Qualification and confidence are intertwined in this dog grooming course.  We do much more than just teach you the theory of dog grooming.

Aimed towards learners of all ages, from school leavers, to those going back into study after many years, this course undoubtedly creates dog groomers of the best calibre.  Yes that includes you!

The Dog Grooming Diploma is exclusive to Vibe Learning and is not sold by any third party resellers.
