My Teachers

Here are some of my best teachers so far:

What have I learned?
* Golden/Collie cuts
* Clipping/scissoring styles for Bichon Frise, Schnauzer, Mini-poodle, Portuguese Water Dog
* I love working with dirty dogs!
* Mats can be removed from a cat without shaving or anesthesia… all it takes is a lot of patience and multiple short sessions working with the kitty…
* The calming sprays made at MACC using Dr. Willard’s Water and essential oils really do work to calm dogs greatly… This week I witnessed the spray mix called ‘Stress Relief’ quickly pull an immune-compromised (from chemo) older pooch out of a life threatening seizure… very impressive… I definately will be using the Dr. Willard’s Water for diluting all pet shampoo products….
