Creative Pet Styling:  
  Working with Chalk 

Angela Kumpe & Lori Craig


In this Learn2GroomDogs lesson, award-winning creative stylists Angela Kumpe and Lori Craig show you how to apply brightly colored chalk to the coat. This is a very inexpensive color application to apply. It can be done on short or long coated dogs. Chalk also works on both light and dark colored pets.


The chalk can be applied in different ways. In this video, a flower is trimmed into the coat on the hip. Without color, the flower is very hard to see, but with colored chalk the flower pops right out. It's bright. It's fun. Next, you'll learn a simple way to apply color to highlight the ears for a multi-tone effect.  


There are a number of different products to choose from. Angela and Lori will share with you what to look for when selecting chalk to use with creative pet styling. Plus, they'll tell you where you can get it. And best of all -- this is not a permanent color. It will wash out with a few shampoos.

What Can Grooming School Teach You?

I hear this all the time. Students close to graduating from our 600 clock hour program hit the panic button. They are frustrated. Frustrated with themselves. Frustrated with the program. Frustrated with their trainers. They feel they haven't learned enough to start out in their new careers.


But in most cases - they are wrong. Way wrong.
