Pet grooming training can be a great career choice for those that have a love of animals. Most of your clientele will consists of dogs but cats are also brought in for grooming or nail care on occasion. While most of the grooming tasks involve bathing and clipping, you will also have to have a basic understanding of general pet care and pet health issues.

Learning how to spot early pet health care issues is a big part of the pet grooming training material. Dogs will typically see their groomer more frequently than their veterinarian and a good pet groomer should be able to alert the owner to any possible pet health care issues. Some common things that pet groomers are trained to spot are skin disorders. Often what seems to be like a harmless spot of dry skin can be an indication of more serious health issues. Did you know that dry skin in dogs is one of the signs of kidney disease?
