Learn how to groom your dog at home!
What you'll learn
- You will have the confidence and knowledge to groom your dog at home from head to toe - you will learn which tools are best for you, how to keep everyone safe, and how to make the process enjoyable for the dog and you!
- All you need is a dog or the intention of having one! :0) 🐾
This course will teach you how to groom your dog at home - you'll learn which tools you need - what's the difference between an expensive pair of clippers and a cheap pair? What sort of scissors are best? You'll learn about health & safety for both you and the dog/s, and you'll watch practical demos of me grooming my Australian Labradoodle Watson. As well as grooming the coat, we'll learn how to cut nails, remove ear hair, and how to choose the best place to carry out each part of the grooming process. This course will not only teach you how to groom your dog/s at home, but it'll tell you how to do it in a way that will make it enjoyable for them! You can also join me at any time on You Tube (Mrs Ginger & Her Dog) for more videos on how to train your dog. Karen & Watson x
Who this course is for:
- Dog Owners/Potential Dog Owners - particularly long/curly haired dogs or dogs that are low to no shedding
My name is Karen and I have 2 passions in my life – Animals and Beauty. The two are worlds apart I realise lol My goal in life is to improve the lives of animals, particularly dogs. One way I can do that is by teaching dog owners how to groom their dogs with love so it becomes an enjoyable experience for all involved. It might also save you a few pounds too :0) I have an Australian Labradoodle called Watson who is quite a character!
I worked for the NHS for 8 years in Medical Research based in a hospital, and loved my job immensely. Whilst there I gained my HND in Health Sciences as part of my Bsc but I sadly had to take redundancy from that role in 2015. I took that opportunity to re-train in my other passions, and as a result I have added the following qualifications and experience to my resume:
Diploma in Dog Grooming
Ran my own successful dog grooming business from home
Certificate in dog behaviour and psychology
Certificate in Canine first aid
Work as a professional photographer
I have also enjoyed creating and nurturing my two You Tube channels (one dogs, one beauty!) so you can always find me there if you want to know more - The Beauty Maverick and Watson the Warrior.
I hope that you will enjoy your chosen course, and I will always be here to answer any questions.
