Professional Dog Bathing, Grooming & Styling Traditional Diploma Program
This onsite only program presents the total package in dog bathing, grooming and styling education, just as the online/onsite combination type program does, except that the package is wrapped a little differently.

This traditional type program is designed to provide you with the knowledge and practical skills necessary to gain employment as a professional dog bather, groomer and stylist just like the combination program with all training conducted onsite.

The following grooming procedures are included: the practical application of all technical skills necessary to properly bath, groom and style man's best friend. The correct methods of care of the dog's eyes, ears, nose, feet, and brushing teeth will be taught and practiced. Dog bathing, brushing and drying techniques will be practiced daily, including the proper products, tools, and techniques to use on different coat types. You will also be instructed in removing excessive coat to create many different styles using different tools, products, and techniques including clippering, thinning, scissoring, handstripping, carding and deshedding. You will practice creating balance, symmetry, and proper expression and profiles, as well as learning how to avoid creating faults.
You will have access to the Groomers Reference.com as well as the Canine Reference.com to guide you and to create consistency in your training.
