This annual event was held on Sunday 12th October at The Kennel Club in Stoneleigh and it was a must go to event for both Kim and I.
Some of the country's top groomers were on show and were competing and creating some of the most amazing styles. Not a hair out of place – which could have due to the fast drying specialist dog hairspray – but I doubt it!
The skills on show were awesome and humbling.
Knowing how important it is to keep up to date with what is happening in the industry and the need to learn as many new top tips to make your pooches even more gorgeous, we attended several specialist seminars and got as much information and advice as we could from some of the most talented people in the industry.
We are now oiling our scissors with glee and waiting for that special customer who requires a newly inspired trim! In fact, today we used our new found knowledge on a lovely Cairn, Finlay - with great success!
We also met up again with the highly respected international groomer, international Judge and all round great guy, (he told me to say that) Colin Taylor, who has promised to come and visit us in our salon very soon to give us the benefit of his wondrous knowledge on a one to one basis - a private session so to speak !
No doubt, if things run true to form, we will learn a huge amount and have a lot of laughs along the way.
We may lock him in and never let him out, he is that good .....................
