Dog Grooming Training
Professional groomers have joined the show circuit, traveling state to state, even abroad, to shows where they compete for cash prizes, prestige and vacations. Groomers are judged on their technical abilities to work on specific breeds. Although you may not be aware of it, a grooming contest takes place somewhere in the United States just about every month.
It's wonderful to see groomers take such pride in their work and challenge themselves to do their best. Owners, too, can benefit from their competitive efforts by bringing home healthy, good-looking pets from the grooming salon. But grooming hasn't always been competitive or business-oriented. In fact, it probably started for very practical reasons.
