Back to Poodle Basics

These rules and tricks will help you set the shave lines on any Poodle, whether you’re grooming a show dog or a client’s pet.

Catching the Judge’s Eye

Becoming a successful competitive groomer requires not only great grooming skills, but also careful preparation, smart dog selection and impeccable conduct in the ring.

Form & Function in Coat Care Tools

When selecting the brushes and combs they use in the salon, it is important that groomers focus on elements such as safety, ergonomics and suitability to the job at hand.

Top Tubs

These bathing systems chase away the bath time blues by offering unique features that keep grooming easy and efficient.

The Golden Retriever Teddy Cut

This groom can be the perfect answer for Golden Retriever owners who want a cut that will keep their dogs cool in hot summer weather.

Healthy Inside and Out

Retailers need to stay up-to-date on the latest oral, skin and coat care innovations.

A Fair to Remember

The Atlanta Pet Fair & Conference drew grooming industry professionals from around the country to "The Peach State" for four days of valuable educational sessions, spirited competitions and innovative product exhibits.

The Right Staff

Building an effective team of employees for your salon will require finding candidates who not only have the necessary skills, but also fit the image of your brand.

Going Beyond the Splash & Dash

Bathing a dog seems like it should be easy, but there are so many things to consider if you’re going to do it right.

Five Tips for Table Safety

Just like the most important issues in real estate are “Location, Location and Location,” the most important elements of table safety when grooming are “Control, Control and Control.”

Giving Groomers a Lift

These well-designed lift grooming tables can go a long way in saving wear and tear on a pet stylist’s body and making the grooming process more efficient.

Pet Westie Trim

A short, modified Westie trim that stays true to breed standards may be the perfect groom for an aging pet.

Superior Suds

Pet stylists know just how important starting with a clean coat is to producing a great groom. With that in mind, here are some of the top shampoos available on the professional market.

The Upside of Downsizing

For reasons of ergonomics and precision, groomers should consider the value of adding smaller clippers, trippers and shears to their toolboxes.

Easy on the Ears

With the range of ear care options available today, retailers can equip themselves with the knowledge and products to provide a solution to meet any customer’s needs.

Give It a Dry

Pet owners may not realize the value of quality at-home drying products, so retailers should seize the opportunity to offer both information and a good selection of towels and dryers.

Stable Selection

When choosing tables, groomers should invest in products that will be reliable assets to their businesses for years to come.

A Perfect Match

To succeed in the brushes and combs category, retailers must ensure all their customers go home with just the right tool to suit their needs.

A Cut Above

With the right selection of clippers, retailers can help any customer achieve their home-grooming goals.

Key Accessory

Far from a superfluous touch, adding embellishments like bows and bandannas to finish off a groom lets customers know they’re valued.
