Talking to Pet Owners About Handstripping
Amy Triezenberg 

How many times has an owner called and requested handstripping for their dog? Did you get the feeling that the owner only asked because the breeder "told them that's what their pet needed?"  Even though the pet owner doesn't really know what handstripping is, he thinks this process is his only option... but is it?


In this lesson, award-winning pet stylist, Amy Triezenberg tackles this dilemma. She has a simple - yet effective - series of talking points when educating owners about handstripping. She even demonstrates a fabulous visual aid. This aid really helps owners understand the process in terms that are easy to understand.


Once Amy has met the dog and spoken with the owners, she can start discussing options for their pet. She reminds us that not every dog is a candidate for handstripping. Sometimes the owner's pocketbook is not ready to handle the cost of handstripping, either.  What options does the owner have? Amy will spell it out for you.


The key is to get everybody is on the same page. Amy does a great job of breaking this process down and making it easy for everyone.
