Dog grooming is an unregulated industry with no government mandated certificate that 'qualifies' you.

Whilst you may not need a formal certificate to work as a groomer, we believe that it's vital that anyone selling their services as a groomer be professionally trained. Our dog grooming courses have been developed by a professional grooming educator who ran her own salon for many years. All courses are mentored by a practicing dog groomer, enabling us to deliver both current and professional guidance throughout your learning journey.

We include resources that will help you build your business after graduating;

  • Blade Size Chart
  • Equipment Checklist
  • Five Freedoms Poster
  • Muscle Groups Poster
  • Canine Disease Chart
  • Dog Health Assessment Template
  • Income Projection Template
  • Business Plan Template

Yes!

Upon successful completion of your assessments you'll receive three separate Certificates for each course. (Diploma + 2 Certificates)

There is no obligation to purchase any equipment in order to complete the course.

The course includes practical tasks to be completed on your own or friends dogs.  They are optional and can be completed at your own pace, so there is no commitment to purchase anything if you choose not to.  To complete them you will only require a basic grooming kit.

We don’t recommend buying anything before enrolling as the first module covers equipment and tools in detail.  You'll start thinking about what you might want to invest in dependant on the type of business you are planning (if that’s what you’re planning).  You’ll watch videos from Lisa who runs a home grooming salon, she’ll show you all of her tools and equipment and talk you through what she finds helpful and also where she purchased it all.  You’ll also be able to download an equipment checklist at the end of the module.

Pet Courses students receive a discount with online retailer Clipper World as well.

Industry Facts

In a national study of pet ownership, Animal Medicines Australia (AMA) found that dogs continue to be Australia's most popular pet, with just over 5 million dogs accross the nation. Self-reported expenditure on pet-related products and services in Australia is now estimated at more than $13 billion a year, up from $12 billion in 2016 with over $700 million spent on pet grooming services.

The average dog-owning household spends an estimated $2,158 a year on their dogs, including $586 on food and $470 on veterinary services. The average yearly spend on pet grooming is up to $154, totalling an estimated $710 million in 2019.

As a dog groomer, your tasks will involve bathing, cutting, combing, blow drying and styling pets coats. Dogs will also require their nails to be clipped and ears to be cleaned.  You will need to understand customer needs, providing good quality service and be able to measure your customer satisfaction.  Active listening, critical thinking and problem solving are all key skills required as a dog groomer.

The Australian department of employment predicts a strong growth in the pet grooming industry over the next 5 years. The ABS Labour Force Survey identifies that there are 4,100 workers in the pet grooming industry in Australia with 35% working full time hours of 35 hours per week or more. According to the Australian Government Job Outlook, the average age of pet groomers in Australia is 40 years with 85% of workers being female.
