Do you want to turn your love of animal care into an exciting career?

"I love this platform of learning. It is fast, easy to use, and provides me with the precise information I need without having to pay a ridiculous amount or spend a large amount of time studying subjects that are not relevant to what I need to learn. I am about to start my third short course, and with the belief that we can never stop learning, I am sure I will constantly return to Online Courses Australia and continue to use this platform of learning for the foreseeable future." - Natalie Jacobson

If you're a caring, composed dog lover and you’re ready for a fulfilling career working with and caring for animals, you can make a move and create the life you want.

Our Dog Grooming Certificate course offers you the opportunity to learn new skills and can be an exciting entry point to a fun and rewarding career in the animal care industry.

2 Comprehensive Courses, 1 Affordable Price
Make the smart move.

With this Dog training course, you’ll save more than $700 on 2 industry-led courses:

  • Dog Grooming Certificate (valued at $699)
  • Pet Care Certificate (valued at $699)

Designed to teach you the practical skills you need to become a professional and in-demand dog groomer, this 100% online course is ready for you to begin right now.  

If you’re interested in mastering the techniques that professional dog groomers use so that you can maintain your own pup’s coat and cuts, this course is also for you. An investment in your skills means you’ll never have to book in with the groomers again.

Learn about each breed’s structure; topcoat, undercoat, coat texture and movement. Understanding what each dog is bred for and what it is supposed to look like is the key to any suitable groom, so you will build your knowledge of the “Breed Standard” as you progress through the modules.

Upon completion, you will know all vital cutting and grooming techniques. You’ll have a comprehensive understanding of how to treat and maintain a healthy coat for every breed of dog that you come across. If you want a career in the animal care industry, you will be equipped to enter the profession.

With 40% of Australian families having at least one dog, and over 5 million dogs living in homes across the country, accomplished groomers are in high demand in urban and regional areas.
