QC Pet Studies’ Dog Grooming Course
The first thing you need to know is that this is, hands-down, our most popular program. Thousands upon thousands of aspiring and working groomers alike have graduated from this course and gone on to cultivate thriving, fruitful careers in the pet industry.
The wonderful thing about the Dog Grooming Course is that it’s craftily tailored towards ANY and ALL skill levels. Yes, this means that even if you’ve never groomed a dog before, this course will turn you into a subject-matter expert by the time you’re finished. On the other hand, if you already have some experience under your belt, this course will refine all of those core, fundamental grooming techniques you already know and bring them to the next level!
The Course Breakdown
QC Pet Studies’ Dog Grooming Course is broken up into 5 parts. In the first 3 units (A through C), you’ll learn all about:
- The fundamental concept of dog grooming;
- Health and safety;
- Basic dog anatomy;
- Canine behavior;
- Tools of the trade;
- And so much more!
Next, you’ll move onto Part 2 of the program. This is where you’ll get the most of your training by taking advantage of the First Aid for Groomers Course – which I’ll tell you more about shortly.
From there, you’ll progress to Part 3 of the Dog Grooming Course, which covers units D through G. These are the units where you’ll begin putting your grooming and First Aid knowledge to real-world use!
For example, you’ll get to:
- Trim nails;
- Clean ears;
- Brush and de-mat coats;
- Bathe and dry dogs;
- Work with different coat types;
- Execute various haircuts and styles;
- Do cuts that meet breed standards;
- And more!
Now it’ll be time to move onto Part 4 of the program, which consists of your Practicum Units (1 through 5). During this portion of the course, you’ll be tested on your ability to safely and skillfully groom dogs.
These Practicum Units will have you completing intensive hands-on assignments that draw on the content you’ve mastered throughout the course. Furthermore, your personal tutor will review all of your work and provide extensive audio feedback, thereby helping you identify your current strengths and weaknesses.
Finally, you’ll arrive at the last unit of the Dog Grooming Course, which is all about business training. Though this unit is optional, we STRONGLY recommend taking full advantage of it. In fact, the countless graduates who’ve come out of QC Pet Studies have attributed a large part of their career success to the business knowledge they obtained in this very unit.
After all, in order to have a successful business, you need to know how to actually run one. This final unit will ensure to teach you everything you need to know in order to do just that!
You’ll discover how to work for employers, or get your own business off the ground if that’s the career path you’d prefer to take. Moreover, you’ll learn how to market and promote yourself, find your target clientele, conduct competitor research, develop your brand, provide top-notch customer service, and so much more.
Essentially, the Dog Grooming Course – as a full, all-encompassing program – goes full circle. It not only teaches you how to groom like a true expert; it also teaches you how to conquer the business side of things, thus making you a total powerhouse!
QC Pet Studies’ Dog Grooming Certification
Once you graduate from this course, you’ll be mailed a physical copy of QC Pet Studies’ exclusive International Dog Grooming Professional (IDGP) certification. This certification, as I mentioned earlier, is internationally recognized and will be sure to impress all your future clients and/or employers!
And don’t forget: this title also serves as your official designation, too. Your resume will look mighty impressive with this reputable qualification added to it!

What to Expect as a Student of QC Pet Studies
Okay, so now you have a better idea of these two courses and why our current promotional offer is so amazing. But what can you actually expect as a student, once you’ve enrolled with QC Pet Studies?
Self-Paced, Online Learning Environment
This is probably the best place to start since it’s easily the top reason why students and alumni completely love QC Pet Studies’ training.
All of our courses are done 100% online and at your preferred pace. We don’t impose any deadlines on you, nor do you need to follow any rigid, set schedules. Starting on the date you enroll, you get a full 2 years to complete your programs. That said, each course is less than 40 years long.
As such – and since you have full control over when and how much you focus on your studies – you can use as much or as little of that 2-year timeframe as you need. To put this into perspective: many of our grads found that by working on their course for a mere 1-2 hours per week, they were able to graduate in as little as 9-12 months (sometimes sooner)!
Tons of Hands-On Training
Yes, while our courses are done online (rather than a brick-and-mortar class), we still understand the need for real-world experience. This is why QC Pet Studies’ Dog Grooming Course provides an abundance of practical assignments that’ll give you all sorts of eye-opening, hands-on training.
Furthermore, these assignments will push you to find and work on dogs of different breeds and sizes, as well as those with different coat types. As a result, you’ll hone your skill-set and be completely prepared to book legit, paying clients as soon as you graduate!
Real Industry Expert Tutors
At QC Pet Studies, we firmly believe that you can only become the best by learning from the best! This is why all of our tutors are real-world dog groomers with years of experience under their belts.
Once you enroll in your courses, you’ll be assigned your personal tutor. Since our learning environment is one-on-one style, we guarantee that your training experience will be 100% tailored to you, your work, and your goals. Furthermore, after every unit, your tutor will go over your work with a fine-toothed comb and then provide thorough audio feedback to help you identify your current strengths and weaknesses.
Physical AND Digital Course Materials
Once enrolled, you’ll receive your login details for QC Pet Studies’ Online Student Center within 1-2 business days. As soon as you can log into the OSC, you’ll have access to the digital copy of all of your textbooks, instructional videos, quizzes, worksheets, and assignments. Thus, you’ll be able to begin your course as soon as you want!
However, we’ll also be mailing you a physical copy of your course materials as well – right to your front door, at no extra charge. Plus, since the Dog Grooming Course also comes with a complimentary starter grooming kit, you’ll also receive that from us, too!
Competitive Tuition Rates
In general, QC Pet Studies – like all other online schools – will offer cheaper tuition than what you’d find in an in-person grooming school. This is because we don’t have a physical campus to maintain or any of the additional overhead costs that would come with that.
But it’s not enough for us to simply be more affordable than brick-and-mortar schools… After all, we want to make your decision to pursue your dream career as easy as possible! And this is exactly why we pride ourselves on our low monthly payments plans.
Now, you absolutely can pay the full amount at the time of enrollment (which will get you a pretty nice Pay-in-Full discount). But you also have the option to pay a small deposit at the time of enrollment, followed by easily affordable payments for a set number of months afterward.
This way, ANY person with ANY budget can get QC’s top-quality education!
(Seriously, once you add this on top of the $200 OFF you’ll get from this promotional discount, it’s hard to think of a reason not to enroll with QC Pet Studies right away!)
