PET GROOMING –
LIFELONG LEARNING CENTER 2
The ongoing number of pet owners leads to increasing demand for practitioners with theoretical and practical knowledge in pet care, grooming and beautification. A professional groomer can ensure the proper dog or cat grooming, being aware of the characteristic features of each race (race morphology, hair quality), preparation and overall care prior to grooming, pet handling (pet approaching based on their particular behavior and health conditions), equipment and techniques proper use, hair cutting, bathing, rinsing off and drying.
They can also predict potential health problems such as ear infections, skin anomalies or teeth attrition that could cause life-threatening health problems to pets.
The course is both theoretical and practical and the trainee acquires knowledge on dog races in order to choose suitable haircuts along with bathing and care. Knowledge on the basic principles of pet anatomy, physiology, hygiene and psychology is important to graduates’ high standard qualification as groomers in pet shops, dog hair salons, animal shelters or running their own business.
Practice (more than 80 hours in 25 practical courses) is exclusively done in our premises by qualified groomers in order to ensure training quality. It is also enriched by a 12-hour theoretical training.
Small groups of only 4 trainees provide the possibility of getting involved with hosting animals from our trainees or animal protections organizations.
In e-leaning courses, theoretical training is online and practice is offered through intensive courses in our premises.
INSTRUCTIONAL AID: Trainer’s notes and presentations, books about the general principles of pet grooming.
