Dog grooming has become a stronghold in the animal care industry. If you are a lover of animals or have a passion to work with them there are plenty of opportunities available. You can even setup your own dog grooming business. Taking the Certificate in Dog Grooming at QLS Level 3 will open up a world of possibilities for you to work with animals and transform your passion into a successful career. Pet owners are always on the lookout for reliable good dog groomers. Not all dog owners have the time or skill to groom their dogs. Grooming is no longer something that only the elites enjoy, it is a service that is often required by the average pet owner.

Grooming is not just to ensure the dog has good fur, it is also to maintain the pet’s overall health and welfare. Some animals may groom themselves including dogs, however, there are hard to reach places and in such instances professional dog groomers are able to provide a thorough grooming service. This can even lead to potential diseases being observed or found, and the dog’s life being saved in the process.

The Certificate in Dog Grooming at QLS Level 3 will feature a number of key topics to ensure the learner gains a complete understanding of the subject matter. Each module is discussed in-depth and topics such as dog grooming tools, hydrobath, puppy wash and grooming nails are explored.
