The iPET Network Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming and Salon Management, is a formal, regulated and nationally recognised qualification that will remain relevant throughout your career and can only be achieved by reaching the required skill level. It has been designed specifically for those looking to become professional dog groomers, or those who already groom dogs (as a hobby or career) but do not currently hold a nationally recognised qualification.
