Are you a newbie in the competition ring – or even just thinking about stepping into the ring? What about taking the plunge on certification testing? Whether you’re seasoned pro or a beginner, there are always ways to improve your next groom.
April Printz-Bruce was a first time competitor. She groomed her own dog, Louie. Considering she was in the Novice Division, we were pretty impressed with her end result.
April was a great sport as she let the experienced eye of Judy Hudson fully critique her dog. And she did it while the camera was rolling! Come be a fly on the wall. Listen to these amazingly helpful tidbits! We can’t wait to see what April does in the ring next time!
There’s a reason why Judy is one of our most popular Training Partners at L2GD. She has the right balance of praise, constructive criticism, and encouragement as she worked with April. This lesson is perfect for a beginner or intermediate pet stylist. Judy’s down-to-earth teaching flair makes it easy to understand.
Our guess is you will find it easy to apply many of her suggestions to your next groom. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a ring or just grooming for your clients. A great groom always reflects positively on your salon.
