Course Overview

When you’re brushing your dog’s hair, do you feel that you are the happiest person on earth? Do you enjoy bathing your good dog? Does a tidy dog provide joy? You might have a calling in dog grooming. But how do you train to groom dogs? Well, start with our Basics of Dog Grooming course.

Many of us consider our dogs to be cherished parts of our families. Even when it seems like everyone else has turned their back on us, they are always by our side, and we know we can depend on them. By feeding them, loving them, and paying close attention to them, we care for them much like we take care of our own children. In addition, we must groom them frequently as part of our ongoing care for them. 

We’ll demonstrate how to take care of all your dog’s grooming requirements in this lesson. We will provide step-by-step instructions here in the Basics of Dog Grooming course to ensure that you complete the task correctly, covering everything from bathing and brushing to nail trimming and even taking care of those unpleasant anal sacs.
