Dog Bathing, Grooming & Styling Onsite Program Credit for Previous Bathing & Grooming Experience (Traditional)


Program Designed for Previous Bathing and Grooming Experience

If you have bathing experience as well as basic grooming experience such as trimming the pads and sanitary, prepping the dogs for a bath and completing basic trim styles such as the body contour, silhouette tidy and the long and flowing, this is the right program for you to earn a diploma and be ready for licensing because you can test out of Phase 1 and Phase 2 to save time and money.

If you have basic bathing and grooming skills and want to focus on how to create more proper expresssions and profiles this program can take you to a higher level of expertise.

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.

You are still required to read the online virtual books in each course and take the tests. Your Certified Onsite Practical Skills Instructors and your fellow classmates are available for you to discuss the study material. You will be required to complete an online course a week and will be required to study the online virtual books in the self study courses in a different order than the students in the combination program. We have listed the self study courses and the order you will study and take the courses to help you better understand the difference in the combination and traditional diploma program for experienced bathers. .
