2. Course description
The level 3 dog grooming course builds upon the knowledge gained during the City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate for Dog Grooming Assistants qualification and will give you the skills and abilities to work as a professional dog groomer. Classroom lessons will be complemented by extensive practical experience in the College's state-of-the-art grooming suites, complete with professional equipment and access to a variety of dogs on which to practice the techniques you will be learning. There is significant emphasis on practical experience throughout the programme. Upon gaining this qualification you will be confident in handling and grooming a range of dogs of differing breeds, temperaments and ages. You be able to identify signs of normal and abnormal behaviour to minimise stress, and know how to undertake health checks and adjust grooming regimes accordingly. You will also gain an understanding of relevant animal welfare legislation and safe working practices, as well as learn how to manage the administrative and financial aspects of a busy dog grooming salon.
