Welcome to another edition of our Groomer Showcase, where we celebrate the work of groomers like you!
Do you go the extra mile in your community? Have a grooming specialty you want to share? Send us your pictures to email@example.com and you could be our next grooming showcase superstar.
Congratulations to Gianna, Mary and Eric! Thank you for sending us in your work this week.
We salute you and all of the other groomers out there who continue to keep our furry friends looking and feeling their best.
Coco the French Bulldog
Gianna writes: “Hi, my name is Gianna and I’ve been grooming for 11 ½ years. I started with English Bulldogs. Coco is a 1½ year old French Bulldog and my first Frenchie! Grooming French Bulldogs doesn’t entail as much as some other breeds.
With Coco, I do her nails and whiskers first (I use an Andis® cordless whisker trimmer) and then she gets brushed. I use Silk Spirits on her coat. To make her muzzle whiter, I apply kerotin and then use a combo of either Ducky White or white chalk powder mixed with Gold Bond powder.
“Grooming on the go can be challenging, especially at outdoor shows. If the weather is bad, it’s hard to find any grooming space.”
All Breed Pet Salon
Mary writes: “I have been grooming for almost 12 years as a graduate from The Maryland School of Dog Grooming. Dude is 4-year-old Bichon Frise has been coming to me faithfully for 3 years. I used a #3F Andis on the body and Heritage shears to finish his legs and head. All of those tools were purchased from PetEdge.”
Cayey Veterinary Clinic
Cayey, Puerto Rico
My clients here are 70% Shih Tzus and the rest are Poodles and Yorkies. Most of the clients here are very good with keeping regular appointments, but I have a few that always bring their dogs in with Bob Marley hair!
My favorite grooming tools are my Top Performance ProEar Professional Medicated Ear Cleaner and my Master Grooming Tools Ergonomic Dematting Rake.
The challenge I face here is that people are very conservative, and don't let me be creative with pet styling.”
