Camouflage Grooming – How Understanding Canine Structure Affects Our Grooming And The Pet’s Behavior with Teri DiMarino


As much as we all love our dogs, we must realize there are no perfect pets. Understanding correct canine structure and the beast beneath the hair will increase our ability to deal with certain difficulties we may encounter in our grooming.

Teri will show how to achieve the edge that makes your grooming just a bit better than the salon down the street. Knowing proper body construction of the dog helps make the grooming job easier and the finished groom look better. Make crooked legs appear straight, long bodies appear shorter and short necks appear longer. It may also answer questions that you may have about a dog’s behavior or table manners. Give the owner the “Show dog” appearance they have always wanted while making the groom go quicker and easier for you and the pet.

This seminar will cover:

  • Comparing correct and incorrect canine structure.

  • How structure affects the dog’s behavior on the grooming table.

  • Compassionate techniques and equipment to help make the groom more comfortable for the dog and easier for the groomer.

  • How to hide faults and imperfections in the dog’s structure through grooming.
