Online Courses

Here at Creedons College we, like many other progressive educational institutions, see the massive benefit of offering online theory classes to our students.
Classroom based, hands on, practical education is of course absolutely essential when working with dogs, and lots of our courses, from our Practical Dog Grooming course, to our Practical Dog Training course, and our Practical Dog Management course all focus on hands on, classroom based training.
However, when it comes to gaining theory-based knowledge, nothing beats online learning.
The use of webinars allows our tutors to provide you with actual video footage examples of the topics they are discussing (learning about reading dogs body language is pretty much impossible without seeing video!).
Online lectures means that if you are sick, held up in work, or running late you don’t miss ANY of the vital information.
And of course, lets be honest, even the best student daydreams, gets distracted by their phone, or does not hear something their teacher says – online lectures allows you to pause, rewind, and re-watch your lectures as many times as you want – perfect for taking notes, allowing the information to be processed correctly, and to do what we set out to do, EDUCATE you to the best of your ability.

Professional Dog Grooming Assistant

By hiring a dog grooming assistant they can skip this time consuming stage, allowing the parlour to take many more bookings, increasing revenue, allowing the groomer to focus on styling, and justifying the employment of a dog grooming assistant.
