It is safe to say that a lot has changed over the last year and a half. One of those changes, for many, has been welcoming a new dog or puppy into the family. The change of moving from a workplace to the comfort of home, whether it is for the entirety of the week or just a portion, has meant we are now spending a lot more time on our own, rather than being surrounded by colleagues and friends. Because of this, a furry dog friend has become an extremely popular companion.
How to find CPD Dog Grooming Courses
Not to be taken lightly, puppies and dogs need a lot of attention and require consistent maintenance such as vet check-ups, bathing and grooming. Depending on the breed of dog you have brought home, it might be that grooming needs to happen as much as twice a month. Due to the expense of grooming, and the potentially stressful experience for your pup (some love it, so it is best to see how your dog responds), it could be a great skill to get under your belt and do it yourself through a pet or dog grooming course.
What do you learn on a dog grooming course?
First of all, attempting to groom your dog yourself without any knowledge of the type of grooming they require can be risky, and you may end up missing a few key areas or, worse, potentially harming your dog by not carrying it out in the correct way. Each dog breed has its own grooming requirements - it’s not just bath, clip and trims.
An online dog grooming training course will take you through the skills you need to put dog grooming into practice. Whether you want to learn because you are an aspiring dog groomer or simply want to maintain your pet, it must be done right.
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development, and is the term used to describe the learning activities individuals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. At The CPD Certification Service we have a number of CPD providers that offer dog grooming classes and courses. Depending on the course you choose, you may learn about trending styles, what to do when accidents happen, how to care for your dog correctly and how to groom puppies.
If you are hoping to start your career in dog grooming, it may be that you choose a course that is a little more advanced and offers multiple stages that will lead you to become a professional dog groomer rather than an at-home personal carer. You can view all of the online dog grooming courses that we host on our website here.
