Adult Education Courses

Dog owners spend hundreds of dollars each year to keep their pooch primped and pampered. But in these tight times, save some dough by learning how to groom ‘Fido’ by enrolling in an adult education course offered at Indiana University Northwest.

This non-credit course, starting March 21, will teach dog owners the necessary skills to keep their pet feeling and looking in tip-top shape. The class will meet every Monday from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., concluding April 11.

While your dog is not allowed in class, bring all your questions regarding dog grooming because this class will cover head to ‘tail’! The instructor will teach how to care for nails, proper ear cleaning and plucking, basic clipper work, proper brushing for up-keep, shedding, and de-matting. Students will also learn about the types of supplies needed and where to purchase them. Northwest Indiana pets will be thanking their owners, now that grooming bills will be less, leaving more cash for treats!

The Dog Grooming class costs $85.
