Course Overview

Creedons College have designed the Practical Dog Grooming course with the needs of the learner in mind. We have created a programme that has had extremely high satisfaction rates and a high ratio of graduates going on to become professional dog groomers.

This course is;

  • Delivered on weekends, facilitating those working fulltime, or travelling from a distance
  • Just three months long, meaning you will be ready to groom professionally in next to no time
  • Intense classroom sessions, maximising the learning outcome of each session to ensure that your knowledge and skills develop rapidly
  • Focused on facilitating a warm, friendly, inclusive learning environment where strong life long friendships are made while sharing a love for dog care.
