By August 22, 2019 No Comments

We’re now making our 1-day basic grooming course more accessible to the public in hopes of educating the public on how to maintain their dogs in between trips to the groomers. Remember, a well groomed dog is a healthier and happier dog!

Whether you are a pet owner or someone just wanting to have a feel of how it is to be working in a grooming salon, we believe this course will be beneficial for you.

Our course covers both theory and practical aspects of basic grooming.

Theory will teach you about grooming safety and common accidents as well as guide you on how to counter these issues. Our instructors will also educate you on some dog sicknesses, skin issues and even tell you how you can protect them from these!

Our instructors are certified groomers who have graduated from Animal Arts Academy and love to share their knowledge on pet care.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own pets as that’s who you’ll be grooming at home. It’ll be a day of great bonding for you and your dog as you both gain confidence in each other through grooming under our supervision.
