Advanced Dog Grooming College Certificate

Please note: in order to sign up for this course you must have already completed the Basic Dog Grooming course. This is a practical course, taught by a highly qualified and experienced dog groomer, using our specialist dog grooming facilities, Creations Dog Grooming Salon at South Devon College. You will be working with real dogs and you may get wet or hair on you therefore comfy, closed shoes are essential. You will have the opportunity to bring your own dogs in to practice on, but you must discuss this with the teacher first. There are no formal entry requirements for the course but we do suggest that you complete the basic course first; unless you are very experienced at bathing and grooming dogs. After completion you may wish to progress to our Level 2 and Level 3 accredited qualifications.

Please book this course on our online shop.
There is a wide variety of financial support available for adults to help fund your studies with us. The funding you can receive depends on your personal circumstances, and could mean you are entitled to free or reduced course fees. You may also be entitled to support with travel, childcare and equipment.

I came to the College six years ago to set up a dog grooming salon offering courses for students to groom our ever growing dog clientele. I have gained a number of teaching qualifications, dog grooming knowledge and experience that I am proud to share with my students. I love watching my students progress into confident and caring professionals.Joanna Elson
