Hands-on Practical Grooming

Our courses are very practical and you are taught using live dog models.

With over 150 different breeds on our books, you are guaranteed to groom a wide range of breeds and coat types in a wide range of styles.
From day 1 of your course you will be hands on and practicing the real skills needed to become a successful dog groomer whilst being supported, coached and mentored by one of our wonderful tutors. Our teachers have a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide you in your studies, their friendly and fun approach is what makes Pet Training Courses one of the leading dog grooming qualification providers in the UK.

Why choose dog grooming as a career

The UK is a nation of animal lovers who adore their pets and treat them as valued members of the family. We choose to spoil them and take them for regular grooming to maintain their welfare, skin and hair condition. With the increase of cross breeds such as Cockapoos, Labradoodles and Cavachons, regular grooming is now even more important for our pets. Following a recent survey it ‘s confirmed over 3.2 million dogs were purchased during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
