The Professional Groomers !


item1 One of our school graduates took part of the Dog Grooming Competetion held by the Dog Groomers Association.news1

Miss Y. Sawa completed 20 weeks of Professional Dog Grooming Lessons and started working at the pet salon downtown Toronto only a few months ago.

She has “just graduated” from this school. She has no previous grooming work experience. (She came to this grooming school right after finishing a high school.)

In spite of that, she won the second place in the professional dog groomers competition.

Her comment: All the other contestants were very very good. I’ve been just lucky. I met excellent people, and one of my shop customers actually made this possible.

The customer insisted me to join the contest and let me use her beautiful Bichon Frise. Thank you for all the help.







item3 Newly graduated dog groomer Miss. Kim Endow entered the May 2 grooming competition held by the Dog Groomers Association with the expectation of the thrillnews32 of the experience. She never dreamed that she would finish in impressive third place in the competition against many skilled professionals.

The competition is judged for many features including cleanness of the shape, the appropriate grooming for breed, as over all balance. It is very rare to have a new groomer in the winner's circle because it usually takes time to become a skilled groomer.

Kim who has impressed the judges with her skills said "This is my first competition." and it was also her first time grooming the Sealyham Terrier.

The school principal Minnie Kusanagi said, " Our students aren't trained for news42competitions or dog shows. We try to teach the basic pet grooming skills they need to build a career."

From what Kim accomplished in the competition it would seem that her new career as a dog groomer is off to an excellent start.
