This Diploma is a definitive, highly detailed online course designed specifically for people planning on starting a business in dog grooming.  Delivered online with unlimited access, it offers you the flexibility to study when and where you like, taking the pressure off, whilst still allowing you to pursue your passion.   It might sound unique, but studying dog grooming online is actually easier than you would think, since you can work at your own pace without getting held up by others like you would in a traditional classroom environment.  The other unique benefit of this online dog grooming course is that you will receive one-on-one feedback from your tutor, Wendy who is a qualified dog groomer herself.

Is your goal to work from home and run your own dog grooming business? Past student Nicole did just that!

"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 read more

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 studying dog grooming, your future is bright. 

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 means you can work from home, or results in you running a successful mobile dog grooming business is up to you.

By the end of the course you could find yourself:

  • Working at home, using your own garage to run your business.
  • Running your own mobile dog grooming business in a specialist adapted van.
  • Working in a pet grooming salon with other qualified groomers.
  • Being your own boss and running a successful dog grooming salon.
  • Branching out into other areas such as dog training, competition dog grooming or teaching.

Each of the above exciting career possibilities are covered in this course, meaning that you're sure to find a career path to suit. 

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.

We don't 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 the skills and capability that you need to confidently sell your services as a groomer.
