Grooming Course Adelaide or Melbourne?

Post by Kenmich on Sun Mar 24, 2013 1:40 pm

I'm interested in changing careers to mobile dog grooming, there are plenty of salons and work from home groomers in my area already but no mobile, I've always had dogs and other pets and can handle any animals. I want some training before unleashing on the public but live in the country so its doubley hard, I have no idea if I will even earn any money.
I know people will say just get a job with one of the other groomers and learn but its not that simple to get a job where you want and the point is to work for myself.

Any ideas on a good grooming practical based course?

Now that I've had a ring around for courses I know that its going to be incredibly hard to do the course that I'd like too, living in the country, great!!
I will have to live in the city for 4 weeks, not a problem if I was 20yo but I ain't, now I have to get my head around how to make it happen Smile No idea.

try ringing and asking if you can get the course split into two week intervals. that way you can come down for two weeks to do part of the course gives you to time to practice and then do another two weeks further down the track.

or if that does not work for you their is an online school with videos you can watch. they had a one month trial that i tried and the videos were very informative, i learnt a lot. then from their you can ask grooming places if you can do work experience a couple of weeks here and their. the website is http://www.learn2groomdogs.com/

Yes one was willing to split so it might be an option, i had thought about the online options but its such a hands on type job i wasnt sure it would be enough, will check out the site thanks, just realising how much we cant do easily in the country though.

Hi
Yes I went to Dog Diversity in Melbourne for a week to get going and then trained with a local groomer to refine for two months.
