'Gettin' er Done' Series with Judy Hudson, NCMG
 Grooming the Pet Brussels Griffon


Judy Hudson is an awarding winning groomer. She is also a popular demonstrator at grooming trade shows. In this lesson, Judy works on a pet Brussels Griffon. The intelligent and fun-loving Brussels has a terrier-like disposition and is known for his almost human-like expression.  



As Judy says, "There are no perfect dogs and no perfect groomers. We just do the best we can with what we have to work with." Wise words when it comes to these two little Brussels that are two regular clients of Judy's everyday mobile business.


She uses two very pet quality Brussels to open up this lesson. Even though they are far from perfect in conformation and coat texture, Judy still attempts to keep the essence of the breed intact. In this demonstration, she works on one dog to show you how groom this appealing little breed using pet grooming techniques.


The trim is fast and easy when you know what tools and procedures to use on this unique breed.

How many of you do this?


You are out shopping. You see something you want to buy; a great pair of shoes or maybe a meal out at a nice restaurant. You see the cost of the item. You automatically transfer it to dog numbers.  You think to yourself, "I would have to groom two and a half dogs to get that."


If you have groomed dogs for any amount of time, my bet is you play this game with yourself all the time.  I know I did!
