K9 Grooming

I have followed a two year track as Certified Dog Groomer at  Syntra.

This course is teaching interested pupils to become a groomer for dogs. Dog groomers need a vast body of knowledge, both theoretical as well as practical, on dog behavior and fur. 13 fur groups are highlighted, and teach us which techniques to apply for each type of fur. In-depth knowledge of the breeds, behaviour and rules and regulations is of the essence.
