Grooming school!

Well, I am going to be enrolling October 6th, and I am VERY excited. Anyone have any good tips for me?

The instructor said something about us using our own dogs for instructional purposes as well, bringing them to class to get them groomed, etc. She said she's excited to have Paps coming in!!

Lexcee says she would love to be "subject" but she insists that Gizmo accompany her lol.

I am sure you will do well and enjoy yourself, which is important too.

Super cool! I am glad you took the dive. You will end up as happy as me. I am so glad I enrolled in Animal Behavior. It is even better acually enjoying getting up in the morning and going to work.

Sorry somehow I missed this one. Good luck! I do have a tip for you... if you are nervous dogs will smell it and some will act up. If you chew a peice of gum it will help cover your nerves so to say. To me it seemed like as I got better and gained my confidence the dogs started behaving better. And yes I agree with Momto3 get some comfy shoes! Try to learn to groom sitting down because it will help your back in the long run... I can't do it and my back kills me! Have fun and I am sure you will keep us posted with stories and pics...???

Re: Grooming schools

It is an effective way to learn skills grooming on your own dog. I believe your dog will be obedient when you groom him or her during your lessons, which will save a lot of energy and time. Imagine you are grooming a dog which you don't know, the pub surely struggles to get free. By the way, what is the cost of studying grooming skills. I am an old guy and can not afford $50 on grooming beast. Therefore, i often groom my puppy at home though i know nothing about that field. My poor dog.

good luck

I did a grooming course as all my dogs have very long hair and as they are show dogs it was more cost effective,my equipment came with my course.
I paid 3.000 for a 4 week intensive city and guild certificate,1 part of the exam was theory +the other part was grooming a terrier,poodle,spaniel,sheepdog. Shampooing+nail clipping,coat stripping by hand +emptying the anal glands+dentistry.I loved the course and i am always complimented on my dog care.I wish you well,and i am sure you will make a big success and an exellent groomer
