Become a Dog Groomer in Manchester

Dog grooming can be a lucrative source of income, is stress-free and relaxing.

If you love pooches and want to acquire a new set of skills, then dog grooming is one of the best ways to combine the two.

Become a professional dog groomer means you can work flexibly, have fun and work with our four-legged friends!

Your working hours can fit around family commitments, you can work from home, from a mobile van or even in a salon.

The job can be quite physical, with lots of time spent on your feet.

Acquiring the professional skills to become a dog groomer can be achieved at Paw Pad based in Northwich, Cheshire, just 25 miles from Manchester.

Offering three levels of hands-on dog grooming courses at our Northwich centre, our training do not involve any written work. We provide dog grooming equipment if needed and the courses we offer are vocational, accredited and are 100% hands-on from day one.

Our students improve their specialist dog grooming skills as each person has a dog model to themselves. With fully qualified tutor and small classes, training with us is the start of running your very own business resulting in some perfectly primed pooches!

Once our students have completed their course, there is post-course support by way of a private study group included in the price. We can also offer advice as to where you can purchase equipment after you’ve graduated.

Start your rewarding, ‘pawsome’ career and aim to become the best dog groomer you can be!

“I went to The Paw Pad to complete my Level 3 Diploma and I can say that they are the most genuine and lovely people. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them and I learnt everything you could need to be a dog groomer and own your own business. The support they have shown throughout the course is outstanding, I would highly recommend them.”
