Why City & Guilds?

City & Guilds have long been established as the industry standard when it comes to dog groomer qualifications. The qualification has been developed by dog groomers and honed over many years to continue to offer a broad-based curriculum which combines underpinning, theoretical knowledge with commercially important practical styling experience to give you the best platform from which to launch your dog grooming career.

Students undertake the Level 2 7863-2 Dog Grooming Assistant qualification, followed by the Level 3 7863-3 Professional Diploma for Dog Grooming Stylists. Both of these can be undertaken at our training centres.
