The course has been developed by Richard and Carol Doggett, a couple who began their careers in dog grooming in 1975 after taking a course from a family member who'd trained at the New York School of Dog Grooming. They organized one of the nation's first mobile dog grooming businesses, driving from customer to customer to offer their services in their self constructed mobile shop. Since then, the Doggett's have owned multiple shops around the country, had their now grown children learn dog grooming, and launched a career development package made available through their website, www.LearnToGroom.com.
When the Doggetts designed All About Dog Grooming they made the assumption the student had never groomed a dog before taking the course. It is written from beginner level through the more complicated lessons in hand scissoring. Every page of the manual explains all aspects of grooming, from brushing to bathing, ear plucking, nail trimming, skin conditions, parasite control and many other vital topics. The dog grooming course teaches the AKC styles of haircuts for over 30 different breeds. Kindness and safe handling of the dog is stressed throughout.
The course also guides students on the path to small business ownership. Students will learn how to manage business expenditures, setting up a shop, zoning regulations, advertising, bookkeeping and other aspects of the dog grooming business. Three different business designs are suggested and taught. Students of the course are free to use the information for their own purposes or to pursue a small business of their own , whichever they prefer.
The course, now available at a $50 discount, has been gaining rave reviews from many customers. “Your materials have been truly wonderful, and has helped me greatly in my pursuit of working with dogs” said Earl D. from Vermont. Rhonda E. from Georgia also has had major success, opening a pet salon and spa after taking the course. “It's so nice to be my own boss. I make my own hours, days and vacations!”.
The course is meant to be spread over three months, but it is self-paced and can take as long or as short as a student prefers. The $249.99 price tag is a new offer, providing the same course that 1000's have taken in the past to start a dog grooming business.
