Dog Collective Co.

Dog Stylist & Grooming Academy

Dog Collective Co. offers professional dog groomer training. Have you always dreamt of becoming a dog groomer? Maybe you loved learning how to groom your own dog so much that you want to turn it into your new career? Just imagine turning up for work everyday and having Poochie the Pomeranian, Bella the Bichon, Larry the Labrador and Milo the Maltese as your clients?


Dog Collective Co. can help you fulfil your dream and train you in everything "dog groomer". Having trained multiple dog groomers in the past, it's a delight seeing them now running their own successful dog grooming businesses or working within the industry.  


Learning to become a professional dog groomer at Dog Collective Co. Grooming Academy


Work with real dogs from the very beginning:

At Dog Collective Co. Grooming Academy we know that the only way to truly learn how to become a dog groomer is to train on real dogs. Unlike the majority of training courses available, you will be hands on with real life K9's from day one of your groomer training. No book or video can prepare you for what it's really like to physically have to handle a dog, bath a dog and groom a dog - hands on is the only way to go! Don't worry, your trainer will be with you every step of the way so you'll never be on your own. All dogs used for groomer training will be organised for you, and we can train on yours or friends and families dogs too.


What will you learn?:

During this course you will learn the essentials of what it takes to be a professional dog groomer, call it 'Dog Grooming 101'. Like anything in life, you will never stop learning, but you will definitely have the essential skills and knowledge to go out there and proudly announce "I'm a professional dog groomer!". As there are a multitude of different breeds and style cuts, it's impossible to learn everyone of them, however, you will learn how to do full basic dog clips on a variety of common breeds, from this you will have the skills and knowledge to start working as a dog groomer as well as the foundations from which you can grow. You will also learn about dealing with clients, the cleaning and maintenance of equipment and the general running of a dog grooming business, such as where to purchase products, booking systems, pricing and so much more. Some of the other things you will learn are as follows:


• How to properly bath a dog

• How to shave and clipper a dog

• Different types of styles

• Scissoring a dog

• How to blow-dry a dog

• How to brush out a dog

• How to clip a dog's nails

• How to clean and pluck a dogs ears

• How to trim dog's paw pads

• How to tidy a dog's face

• How to clip around a dog's eyes

Naomi

Dog Collective Co. Grooming Academy Graduate 2021.

"Hello everyone! I recently graduated at Dog collective and Co grooming academy. I did a one month full time course with another student. We groomed more than 80 dogs and had the possibility to practice our skills with a nice variety of breeds (Poodle, Schnauzer, Bichon, Yorkshire etc..) Perfect if you want to build your own portfolio since day 1. The owner/teacher Tammy is really professional and passionate about her work. She does not just teach you how to groom a dog...Tammy is willing to help you (even after you graduate) to start your own business, help you with a lot of useful information about products, tools and where to purchase whatever you need. I will give my experience an 11 out 10, definitely worth it."

Leanne

Owner of Top Paws Grooming Salon

Thank you Tammy for sharing your expertise, you are truly an inspiration. I had an amazing 4 weeks at your training facility learning everything I need to know to have the confidence to open my own salon in Plainland. I look forward to many catch-ups in the future.
