Dog groomers who understand canine behavior benefit both the dogs and themselves in a few key ways:

  • Safety: By recognizing signs of fear, aggression, or anxiety in a dog’s body language or vocalizations, groomers can take steps to prevent bites to themselves or injuries to the dog.

  • Positive Experience: A calm and understanding groomer can create a less stressful environment for the dog, making the grooming process more enjoyable for everyone. This can lead to better-behaved dogs during future grooming sessions.

  • Better Care: Understanding a dog’s temperament helps the groomer identify potential health issues.

Overall, knowledge of canine behavior allows dog groomers to provide a safer, more positive, and higher quality service for their furry clients.

Geriatric Dogs (4-hour Certificate Course)

You will learn the correct products and handling procedures to keep your geriatrics safe and clean. Hopefully, every dog we groom will grow to a ripe old age, and knowing how to handle them properly can mean the difference to your clients. Everyone attending this class will receive a certificate of completion. A certificate will be available after taking a test.

Mobile Right

Mobile Grooming doesn’t just mean you get to do things your way. There are the right and wrong ways on how to handle clients and dogs, scheduling, policies, procedures, etc. Let’s explore how to Mobile Right as an employer, employee, and independent individual to maximize your time and energy. 

Mobile grooming is an excellent option within the Grooming Industry. It allows for freedoms and options that aren’t allotted to a brick-and-mortar salon. It’s an entirely different ball game with its own perks, issues, and rewards. It’s quick thinking and a race against time, traffic, and weather in order to get through the day and groom all the dogs. 

Difficult Dog (4-hour Certificate Course)

In today’s increasingly litigious society, it’s more important than ever to understand how to handle as many different types of dogs as possible safely. So, what do we do when we feel our safety is compromised? In this two-hour class, Melissa shows you in real-time how to quickly, compassionately, and efficiently handle the difficult behavioral problems we face every day. A certificate will be available after taking a test.

Don’t Grab the Beard!

The default way we are taught to hold faces is by the beard. Some dogs don’t mind, but many tug, pull, jerk, bite, and scream. There must be a better way! Hang out with me as I show you alternative ways to hold faces while grooming and bathing the dogs in your care. The dogs will be happier, and so will you!
