This intermediate grooming short course will set you up to correctly perform grooming of various breeds and their requirements, based on breed standards and coat types. It does not cover breed specific clips, as these are covered in the Certificate IV in Pet Styling.
We’ll take you through the various breed standards and how to interpret the grooming requirements and we’ll put this into action – taking you through examples step by step. We’ll also cover equipment maintenance and cleaning and record keeping.
Whilst aimed at people working at salons, this course is also suitable for pet owners wanting to learn more about how to care for and groom their own dogs according to breed (where clipping is not required).
