Here’s to the dogs…

Started grooming school this week… the work there will mostly be with dogs… which is ok, because there really are so many breeds and temperaments to get to know… 

One of my assigned tasks to document the characteristics of and memorize the 173 American Kennel Club (AKC) recognized breeds… I’ll be doing this by creating Breed Guides linked to the website for future reference (see the FAQ page).

I did some hands on bathing, drying and brushing this week… hope to do some basic clipping next week…

Here are some of the pals I’ve enjoyed so far…

    Awww, they are cute. 173 different breeds to memorize and learn the grooming requirements is a big task. They use a regular bathtub apparently? and for small to medium dogs, a collapsible table to be groomed on?

    Yup… I got my table today… It holds dogs up to 200lbs and fits nicely in the trunk of my car…
