The initial pet grooming classes you take as you start your training will be essential to your career. But don't forget that education is a continual and lifelong process. Even after you have completed your initial training, you will want to continue to grow and learn as a dog groomer.

One way to stay current is to stay tuned in to the dog grooming community. You may choose to subscribe to dog grooming magazines and newsletters, of which there are a number. Another option is to continue to take pet grooming classes to both review and to supplement your knowledge.

Just as you expect many professionals such as doctors, lawyers, and teachers to take courses to stay updated on the latest developments, you should expect the same of yourself as a pet care professional. Pet grooming classes provide an excellent way to stay updated and on top of your game. This will also keep your resumè updated, and be a good way to encourage clients to stick with your services.

For those who choose to take video or DVD courses for the initial training, keeping all of your skills updated may be as simple as reviewing your video courses. Once you have worked on a number of dogs, there will probably be a lot of nuances and tips that you can pick up by rewatching your training tapes, that you would not yet have had the skill to notice or remember the first few times you watched. Remember, your skills are your career, so keep them current.
