About the Course
Certain breeds naturally need more attention e.g. Old English Sheepdogs, Poodles and Labradoodles. Skills are learnt over a longer period of time and participants may wish to discuss this with the tutor before booking. Please contact short course training on 01245 421782 to arrange this.
Short haired breeds may not take all day to groom therefore an opportunity to assist another participant could be an option.
We would recommend any dog, especially puppies, attend a grooming parlour or groomer before coming on this course, to familiarise them. This will help to avoid distressing the dog.
Anyone wishing to pursue a career in dog grooming is advised to attend the NPTC/Petcare Trust course also offered at Writtle College.
A Writtle University College Certificate of Attendance will be issued on completion of the course.
