Do you know why continuing education in other industries is such a given?

 It’s because learning new skills:

  • Increases your income by giving you valuable skills so that you can command a higher price for your services. Raise those prices.

  • Saves time by learning new tricks and tips. And as well as all know, time is a money. Get another pet or 2 done in the same amount of time. Cha-ching.

  • Boost your cognitive abilities. Studies show that those that engage in regular continuing education hang onto your mental abilities longer than those that don’t.

One of the skills we all need as groomers is in the art of grooming. And getting to an in-person breed class is not always feasible or even available in your area. Nevermind, have access to 8 different workshops at the same time.

So, how about spending 2 days online learning the skills that will improve the art of your grooming with the best our industry has to offer. With enough time to watch the recordings if you can’t make it live. Then, the Breed Grooming Summit should not be missed! It will be held live on Sunday, January 8th and Monday, January9th starting at 9AM current Pacific Time. Live workshops are closed captioned and transcripts will be provided for the recordings. Upon request, transcripts can be provided in other languages.
