We have been running Dog Grooming Courses at Muttugly since 2007 and opened a dedicated School for Groomers in April 2016. The next City & Guilds course starts Feb 2017 and for the first time we will be offering it both full time and part-time – you can study 1 day, 2 days or 5 days. We also run a range of shorter courses. Whether you are looking to learn just for fun, want to become a professional groomer or are already a groomer and want to grow your business we have a course to suit.
Interested in Grooming as a hobby?
If you have an interest in grooming your own pet and see it more as a hobby or something to do for fun then Grooming Basics for Dog Owners is the course for you. This is a 1/2 day course where you bring your own pet to groom and is run monthly throughout the year on a Sunday (morning and afternoon sessions).
If you want to get more of a feel for what it is like to have a career as a groomer, you can either do the Introduction to Grooming Evening Course (2 eves per week for 4 wk) these courses are run monthly on either a Tuesday & Thursday evenings.
Looking to become a professional groomer?
The next City & Guilds 7763 courses will start February 2017. Visit Muttugly School for Groomers for more info. The course can be done 1 day per week for 40 weeks, 2 days per week for 20 weeks or 5 days per week for 8 weeks. This is the most comprehensive course being run in Ireland and will set you up to either open your own salon or work from home or go work for someone else. The course is run by Eve Somers who has been teaching groomers in the UK since 1991.
Before you commit to a full time course we recommend you get in touch to arrange a Trial Day this will let you experience what it is like to learn at a working salon and give you the opportunity to meet the trainers and discuss your career plans.
Already a Professional Groomer?
We take external candidates for the FAST Track City & Guilds 7763 exams. Read more about how to go about the 7763 Certificate and Diploma exams at Muttugly School for Groomers.
