Dog Grooming Online Course Outline

Module 1: Working with Dogs

Part 1: Working with Dogs

The goal of this lesson is to provide you with a basic understanding of canine behavior to become a competent dog groomer. It also explains the basics of infectious disease and describes some of the different disease types. Working with dogs is a dream job for many people. Spending each day with our four-legged companions is a lot of joy and a really healthy way to live.

Part 2: Dog Behavior Basics

You can secure a far better level of freedom from anxiety and distress if you have some knowledge of dog behavior and how the animal is feeling. It's nearly hard to change a dog's mind if you don't know what he's thinking in the first place. When a dog communicates with his groomer, he will be much happier, so grooming will be much easier.

Part 3: Infection and Disease

It is critical that you are aware of the possibility for disease as a canine practitioner. This is due to a variety of factors, including the risk of cross contamination and infection. We'll discuss about common infectious diseases, vaccinations, and why sterilization is so crucial when grooming dogs in this section.

Module 2: Canine Anatomy and Health

Part 1: Dog Skeleton

This session aims to familiarize you with dog anatomy and how it relates to grooming. It will also help you keep track of illness, internal and exterior health problems, parasites, and first aid. The structure of the dog's shape—his skeleton—is tucked right down inside his body. The skeleton is a tough structure that protects the interior organs.

Part 2: Muscular System

The groomer places a high value on the dog's muscular system. It serves as a foundation for style and can also reveal any health issues that have gone undiscovered thus far. The primary muscle groups on a healthy dog's body will be strong and even. Wastage on either side can indicate a concern with the bone quality beneath and alert the groomer that something is wrong.

Part 3: Coat and Skin Disorders

As a rookie groomer, you will come across many dogs with various coat conditions and caning skin issues. The coat of a dog might deteriorate for a variety of causes. A complete clip may be required for a badly matted dog to give the coat a fresh start and allow air to circulate to the skin. Before releasing the dog, the owner should always do a visual inspection.

Part 4: First Aid

A simple canine first aid kit should be included in your grooming supplies; you might not need it, but it's good to have it on hand just in case.

Module 3: Essential Grooming Requirements

Part 1: Essential Grooming Requirements

This subject will introduce you to the legal requirements and the physical grooming equipment required to work as a professional dog groomer. The first thing to keep in mind is that dog grooming is currently a regulated profession. Groomers, caregivers, and even trainers for dogs are not regulated by the government.

Part 2: Combs and Brushes

At this point, we aim to provide you with a generic mix so you'll be ready for any canine that shows up on your table.

Part 3: Hairdryers

A hairdryer will almost probably be required, and the options are numerous in the professional dog groomer's work.

Module 4: Getting Practical

Part 1: Getting Practical

We'll start with parasites and then go over all of the aspects of grooming before working in this module. Before the dog enters the water for the actual grooming, a general health check and tidying routine is performed.

Part 2: Ears  

In this section of your groomer training course, you’ll learn about professional pet ear cleaning and the right techniques for professional grooming for dog’s ears.

Part 3: Nails

Nail trimming is an important part of a dog's grooming routine. It's also a concern for the new groomer. The dog's nails will be ground down if they walk on hard surfaces, but those who always walk on grass may have overly long nails. The length of a dog's nails impacts their entire gait and makes them uncomfortable.

Module 5: Time to Get Clean

Part 1: Canine Coat Types

You're looking for clean, velvety skin with minimal discharge in the dog's ears when you examine them. However, you could be surprised by what you see. The existence of ear mites is the first possibility. These tiny mites aren't visible to the normal eye, but they're easy to spot using a veterinary magnification. The ear mite dwells in the ear canal and produces a lot of brown sludge-like discharge and a very strong odor.

Part 2: Preparing for the Bath

It's critical to double-check that you have everything you need on hand after you've completed your pre-work and before you put a dog in the bath. You run the danger of causing issues for yourself if you have to leave the bath to look for towels, a certain comb, or other items while the dog is bathing. The dog may attempt to leap out and follow you, causing a mess and possibly injuring himself.

Part 3: Drying the Dog

There are a few different methods for drying. To remove the surplus water from the coat, all should be rubbed down with a towel. You can choose one of the following drying options once the dog is no longer dripping.

Module 6: Styling Theory

Part 1: Spaniel Style

By the end of this module, you'll know how simple it is to style a dog on a grooming table. When taken in its totality, the subject can be intimidating; yet, when broken down, each style is only a mix and match of a few different ideas.

Part 2: Drop Coat Style

The drop coat is exactly what it sounds like: a coat that grows long and falls to the ground as it matures. Shih Tzus and other toy breeds are examples of normal dog coat breeds. The look of a drop coat is also quite generic. The dog's appearance is restored to that of a puppy after he has been clipped. In some ways, the short-legged terrier's style is comparable to that of the terrier.

Part 3: Legs, Feet and Tail

The dog's legs will be feathered for neatness or fluff dried and shaped. The length of hair left on the legs will be determined by the specific dog breed details, as well as the owner's preferences.

Module 7: Styling in Practice

Part 1: Styling in Practice

We'll look at the practical issues of dog styling in module seven. We'll discuss how to use clippers and scissors effectively, as well as how to practice style in a safe environment. This module's goal is to put everything you've learned so far on the course together and to add practical skills.

Part 2: Creating Face Shapes 

Part 3: Styling for a Dog Show Video

Part 4: Styling for a Dog Show Video

Module 8: Grooming and Paperwork

Part 1: Grooming and Paperwork

This is the last module, and we'll discuss about practical grooming in it. To become a truly successful dog groomer, you will simply need to add practice to the techniques you have already learned. As a result, in this session, we'll walk you through styling some of the most popular dog breeds in step-by-step instructions.

Part 2: Grooming Puppies

It's a good idea to groom pups. Dogs learn a lot about what is dangerous and what they don't need to be concerned about during their first few months of life. Any encounter they don't have till they're ten months old or older will be brand new to them and perhaps frightening.

Module 9: Building Your Business

Part 1: Introduction

Let's figure out the details of how to apply for company start-up and expansion now that we've demonstrated that you're more than capable of grooming dogs and can make a profession out of it. This lesson will go over the components of a basic business plan as well as the legal obligations that small business owners and self-employed people must meet.

Part 2: Registering Your Business

This section will walk you through the process of registering your business and how to stay on the right side of the law. It goes into considerable depth about taxes, NI, and online registration. As a lone trader, registering with the Inland Revenue entails registering your business name.

Module 10: Marketing, Customers and Growth

Part 1: Marketing

In any type of business management, quality marketing is crucial. We want to send you out into the world as a groomer in this final session so you may sell the talents you've learned. We'll discuss creating an image for yourself and customer communication, as well as business marketing and how to expand your company in style.

Part 2: Happy Customers

Successful encounters with prospective clients will be the most crucial thing you can do until your client base is strong and you've established a pattern. Meeting new clients will most likely be a stressful event for you as your business grows. But you'll grow used to it in no time.

Module 5: Time to Get Clean

Part 1: Canine Coat Types

You're looking for clean, velvety skin with minimal discharge in the dog's ears when you examine them. However, you could be surprised by what you see. The existence of ear mites is the first possibility. These tiny mites aren't visible to the normal eye, but they're easy to spot using a veterinary magnification. The ear mite dwells in the ear canal and produces a lot of brown sludge-like discharge and a very strong odor.

Part 2: Preparing for the Bath

It's critical to double-check that you have everything you need on hand after you've completed your pre-work and before you put a dog in the bath. You run the danger of causing issues for yourself if you have to leave the bath to look for towels, a certain comb, or other items while the dog is bathing. The dog may attempt to leap out and follow you, causing a mess and possibly injuring himself.

Part 3: Drying the Dog

There are a few different methods for drying. To remove the surplus water from the coat, all should be rubbed down with a towel. You can choose one of the following drying options once the dog is no longer dripping.

Module 6: Styling Theory

Part 1: Spaniel Style

By the end of this module, you'll know how simple it is to style a dog on a grooming table. When taken in its totality, the subject can be intimidating; yet, when broken down, each style is only a mix and match of a few different ideas.

Part 2: Drop Coat Style

The drop coat is exactly what it sounds like: a coat that grows long and falls to the ground as it matures. Shih Tzus and other toy breeds are examples of normal dog coat breeds. The look of a drop coat is also quite generic. The dog's appearance is restored to that of a puppy after he has been clipped. In some ways, the short-legged terrier's style is comparable to that of the terrier.

Part 3: Legs, Feet and Tail

The dog's legs will be feathered for neatness or fluff dried and shaped. The length of hair left on the legs will be determined by the specific dog breed details, as well as the owner's preferences.

Module 7: Styling in Practice

Part 1: Styling in Practice

We'll look at the practical issues of dog styling in module seven. We'll discuss how to use clippers and scissors effectively, as well as how to practice style in a safe environment. This module's goal is to put everything you've learned so far on the course together and to add practical skills.

Part 2: Creating Face Shapes 

Part 3: Styling for a Dog Show Video

Part 4: Styling for a Dog Show Video

Module 8: Grooming and Paperwork

Part 1: Grooming and Paperwork

This is the last module, and we'll discuss about practical grooming in it. To become a truly successful dog groomer, you will simply need to add practice to the techniques you have already learned. As a result, in this session, we'll walk you through styling some of the most popular dog breeds in step-by-step instructions.

Part 2: Grooming Puppies

It's a good idea to groom pups. Dogs learn a lot about what is dangerous and what they don't need to be concerned about during their first few months of life. Any encounter they don't have till they're ten months old or older will be brand new to them and perhaps frightening.

Module 9: Building Your Business

Part 1: Introduction

Let's figure out the details of how to apply for company start-up and expansion now that we've demonstrated that you're more than capable of grooming dogs and can make a profession out of it. This lesson will go over the components of a basic business plan as well as the legal obligations that small business owners and self-employed people must meet.

Part 2: Registering Your Business

This section will walk you through the process of registering your business and how to stay on the right side of the law. It goes into considerable depth about taxes, NI, and online registration. As a lone trader, registering with the Inland Revenue entails registering your business name.

Module 10: Marketing, Customers and Growth

Part 1: Marketing

In any type of business management, quality marketing is crucial. We want to send you out into the world as a groomer in this final session so you may sell the talents you've learned. We'll discuss creating an image for yourself and customer communication, as well as business marketing and how to expand your company in style.

Part 2: Happy Customers

Successful encounters with prospective clients will be the most crucial thing you can do until your client base is strong and you've established a pattern. Meeting new clients will most likely be a stressful event for you as your business grows. But you'll grow used to it in no time.
