Welcome to the PetEdge Groomer's Showcase, where we highilght the work of groomers like you. This week, we're proud to feature two groomers who are just starting out.
Peluza Fashion Boutique
Carolina, Puerto Rico
Windy began training as a groomer four months ago and is in the process of starting a business with her husband. The business, Peluza Fashion Boutique, is named after a dog that Windy rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico.
Learning to groom has been a particular challenge for Windy because she's physically disabled and can only work with her left hand.
If any groomers out there have tips for grooming with a disability, or know of any resources or equipment that can help disabled groomers, please email us at [email protected] and we'll pass the info along.
Here's a before and after shot of Windy's 3-month old Shih Tzu puppy, Lily.

Amy Jones is a student at Animal Behavior College and is currently working at the Quakertown Vet as a bather and a brusher. She is studying to be a groomer and is about to start her externship.
For practice, Jones has been grooming her own dog, Nelson, who is a Lhasa Apso/Havanese mix.
Here's a look at some of her work. "I used a 4F blade on his body and a #10 blade with a #1 snap-on comb for his face. A #10 blade is the closest cutting blade I own so far. I also did some finishing touches to his face and legs with curved and straight shears."

Thanks and happy grooming :)
