Pet Grooming Advanced

Pet Grooming Advanced

Pet grooming is the hygienic care and cleaning of any household pet. This can either be done as part of a regular care routine for a pet, or it can be used to enhance the physical appearance of a pet for showing or other types of competition (e.g. Crufts). A groomer is someone who makes a living from grooming pets, and provide other services which are specific to certain breeds that are vital to the wellbeing of the pet.

This course will give you strong foundations to learn about more detailed aspects of pets and how to groom them properly.
