Certification: Validate Your Professionalism!
Obtaining certification, regardless of the organization you choose, will stand as a solid credential to prospective clients or employers, assuring them you possess the passion and drive to enhance your knowledge and skill. The process not only enhances the image of your industry, but it will also show that you are much more desirable and qualified to prospective employers or when presenting your business proposal to planning commissions and loan departments. Learn how to study for the exams, what type of dog is necessary, and the dos and do not's! Don’t just think about it; do it!
Grooming the "First Dog"... Portuguese Water Dog
The Portuguese Water Dog once existed all along Portugal's coast, where it was taught to herd fish into nets, to retrieve lost tackle or broken nets, and to act as a courier from ship to ship. There are two "clips" or cuts that are considered acceptable on the PWD: the lion clip and the working clip.
Hayley will introduce you to this wonderful breed and show grooming techniques suitable for the grooming shop, using a combination of snap-on combs, thinning shears and scissors for the retriever trim. The lion trim will also be introduced.
