Are you fascinated by animals and passionate about their care? Do you care about animal welfare and would like to improve the quality of life for animals? Then the study of animal grooming may be the right career path for you.
What is Animal Grooming
Animal grooming is a vital part in the study of animal care. As an animal groomer you would possibly groom a variety of species or perhaps would stick to one species, for example horses. Grooming an animal has many positive benefits including; improved welfare, comfort, better health and general well-being. Without regular grooming, an animal may become matted or suffer infestations of ectoparasites. This would cause the animal pain and discomfort.
Why Study Animal Grooming?
There is always a demand for animal grooming services and this may include pet services such as; dog brushing, de-matting, washing and clipping, nail clipping of different pet species, micro-chipping (with required qualifications), teeth cleaning. It may also include farmed animals or perhaps other outdoor species.
It is important to have a passion and care for animals alongside an understanding of the species you would be working with. Anyone working in grooming should also have a lot of patience as some animals fear being groomed. Patience and kindness will encourage the animal being groomed and over time, with frequent visits, they animal will in turn feel more at ease with the process.
