I graduated from a 10 week grooming course at Connecticut K-9 in Newington, Connecticut. The course teaches the basics of grooming, including brushouts, bathing & drying. It also teaches you the main haircuts on poodles, terriers & spaniels. Experience is acquired in time. Hands on is the only way to get better.
Iíve been grooming for 4 years and still love what I do. My
recommendation to newly graduated students is to try to get a position
in a smaller grooming shop where you can go at a slower pace compared to
a large kennel. Learn to groom the correct way because bad habits are very
hard to break. Donít hurry - it will take away from your technique &
it will show.
