This Level 2 City and Guilds Certificate course is for adult learners wishing to gain basic skills in dog grooming and bathing, in preparation for the Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming.
It will not give you the qualifications required to work as a professional groomer, but it will give you the experience and skills necessary to progress to Level 3.
*Fees apply, please discuss course cost at interview.
What You Will Learn
The course covers the following units:
Unit 1: Prepare and groom dogs prior to bathing
Unit 2: Bathe and clean dogs
Unit 3: Clean and maintain equipment used for grooming or removing hair from animals
Unit 4: Control and restrain animals
Unit 5: Dry dogs and prepare their coats for styling
Unit 6: Basic Trimming of a dog’s coat
Plus pre-set options from:
Unit 7: Carry out reception duties

If you wish to work as a professional dog groomer, you would need to progress onto the nationally-recognised Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming. This would be in addition to a substantial amount of practical experience in the industry to enable you to pass the practical assessments.
The Level 3 Diploma gives you tuition and experience in hand-stripping and also styling and trimming of a whole range of dog breeds and, again, it is strongly recommended that time is spent in industry to further practice and develop the skills for dog grooming.
