Dog Grooming Business Pathway

Fast Track Your Dog Grooming Business Start Up!

If you love canines, and want to work for yourself, what could be better than owning your own dog grooming business? This pathway is made up of four sections. To begin with, you will learn about the care requirements of dogs, and all about their health. Then, in the second, you will be introduced to concepts and facts which are crucial to any groomer. In the third section, you will move on to the “start your own business” course, in which you will learn essential business startup skills. Finally, you will have access to FOUR 1 hour, one on one skype/video sessions with an expert groomer. From here, you will be an attractive candidate as a grooming apprentice, and can commence practical experience with confidence.

 

Completing this course will be the first step toward a new and exciting career working with dogs.

    I wanted to do a Dog Grooming Course, and this course with The Career Academy was the only one I could find that provided a great course for a reasonable price.

    Jenny Sharpe

    I decided to enrol with The Career Academy because I needed a course I could do from home. A bit more on grooming dogs would have been invaluable as that’s the field I wish to take but in saying that I really enjoyed learning about the other aspects of this course and looking forward to doing more studies through you. Excellent overall.

Kaitlyn Champion – Animal Care Tutor

After getting her degree in Zoology and Animal Science Kaitlyn spent time in South Africa studying Cheetahs, as well as time in Zanzibar studying the impact that tourism has on Bottlenose and Humpback dolphins. Now she’s taking what she learnt there and is passionate about passing it on to all her enthusiastic Animal and Pet Care students at The Career Academy. Fortunately, online learning means that none of our students have to get too up close and personal with a hungry cheetah.
In her free time, Kaitlyn spends her time trying to wrangle her Great Dane puppy, and is also in the Australian Army Reserves – but she doesn’t know which is a tougher job.
