Show grooming is one of the most difficult arts to master. In earlier
days most serious groomers apprenticed in order to acquire the skills necessary
to compete. Today there are so many more shows, handlers and dogs being
shown the business has gotten so large the apprentice method is not available
to everyone who desires to learn. These professionals have dedicated themselves
in this video format to teaching you what they cannot teach you in person.
If you have an idea for, or desire to do a video on some K-9 subject, contact
us and let's talk about it.
