Cat Grooming Education

with Lexie Goldsmith

Online Cat Grooming Courses

Master gentle CAT GROOMING
techniques that work with cats,
not against them.

Where do I start?

My courses are a-la-cat (cart),

so, you can choose what you want to learn right now.

New to Cat Grooming?

Start at 'Behaviour for the Cat Groomer'. This will help you assess any cat you meet in the salon and decide if it is safe to pursue the cat's grooming.

Have experience in Cat Grooming?

I recommend 'Behaviour for the Cat Groomer' as a must-have for all cat groomers. I have not found a course so in-depth, to prevent stress and injury.

Want to learn low-stress cat clipping techniques?

Then 'Clipping the Feline' may be right up your alley!

Want to reduce your scratches and add confidence to your cat bathing?

Then 'Bathing the Feline' is purrfect for you.

Are you due to revise your knowledge of First Aid?

The 'First Aid for the Cat Groomer'

will update your First Aid skills!

Pet ownership is exploding

. With the responsibility of pet parenthood, comes the obligation and privilege to care for them properly.

ALL cats need grooming, but unfortunately, there aren’t enough professionals properly skilled in this area. 

Perhaps you’re a grooming professional interested in adding a new skill set to your repertoire so you can fill service gaps while increasing your income.

Would you like to offer your clients a more compassionate approach to having their cats groomed with minimal stress, spectacular results, and no sedation?

These affordable online courses are self-paced, and you can watch and rewatch them as many times as you’d like before completing the course to ensure you’re comfortable with the technique and your mastery of it. Simply purchase online and log in – it’s really that simple. You’re ready to start your journey to calm grooming.

Once you’ve completed the professional lectures and content, receive a Certificate to display at your workplace or salon. 

Choose from courses on clipping, bathing, behaviour, first aid- or all of the above.

Easily equip yourself with the tools you need to confidently and knowledgeably groom cats without adding to their fear, forcing acceptance of the procedure, and knowing when to refer for veterinary care.

As an added bonus, professional students enrolled in courses receive FREE access to the special Facebook community where supportive members ask questions, network and brainstorm with like-minded professionals.

 I have researched, written, and taught each course, and I stand by them with a 30-day money-back guarantee*.

You have so much to gain, and absolutely nothing to lose.

Looking for a calmer groom?

You’ve come to the right place.

Qualified Veterinary Nurse

Cathie Win- Professional Cat Groomer: All professional courses

"Lexie explains grooming methods very well and shows them clearly in the videos. I have found both courses I have done had parts that I have now included in my own grooming. The courses have helped me immensely in showing I was doing grooming the same way and gave me more confidence in my methods."

Joanne Cresswell- Professional Cat Groomer, Courses: Bathing the feline, Clipping the feline and Behaviour for the cat groomer

“Definitely recommend anyone wanting to groom cats to do this course. As a dog groomer being able to add cats to my business has been a real advantage. Lexie's course has taught me so much and instilled confidence. My grooms and handling skills have improved 100%.”

April D- Groomer, Shorthair Cat Grooming Maintenance Course

"The short course on shorthair cats gave me the boost of confidence I needed. The information is practical and helpful and the videos made it really easy to understand. So glad I enrolled! Thanks, Lexie"

Brianna E. Veterinary Nurse Received One-on-one training

"Being a vet nurse, I felt it important to learn how to groom cats. Lexie taught me this in a very professional and friendly manner. I observed her and was talked through it first, before having a go myself. It was much more difficult than I thought - especially when you have a strong cat like my Tom! There’s a lot more to it than just shaving them - multiple different brushes & clipper blade techniques, handling techniques and very importantly, making it a stress-free experience as much as possible to the cat..... I can’t recommend Lexie enough!"

Kim R- Cat Owner, Longhair Cat Maintenance Course

"We had tried for over 2 months to be able to groom our very scared Persian, the vet even gave her medication to calm her down and we couldn’t get it done. Today using Lexie’s calming and grooming techniques I managed to give her a full groom, no medications required!! She looks like a Persian again and is so fluffy and happy!"

Naomi F. - Professional Cat Groomer, Received One-on-one training

"Lexie's calm, careful, thorough training turned the daunting idea of washing a cat, into a skill set that has added growth to my business and allowed me to indulge my passion for felines! I am very proud to tell clients I was taught by Lexie."
