Personal Coaching Lesson on a
Grooming Competition Doodle
Judy Hudson, NCMG

Can't get to a personal coaching session with a top level trainer? How about peeking in on this personal coaching lesson?
Are you a newbie in the competition ring - or even just thinking about stepping into the ring? What about taking the plunge on certification testing? Whether you're seasoned pro or a beginner, there are always ways to improve your next groom.
April Printz-Bruce was a first time competitor. She groomed her own dog, Louie. Considering she was in the Novice Division, we were pretty impressed with her end result.
April was a great sport as she let the experienced eye of Judy Hudson fully critique her dog. And she did it while the camera was rolling! Come be a fly on the wall. Listen to these amazingly helpful tidbits! We can't wait to see what April does in the ring next time!
There's a reason why Judy is one of our most popular Training Partners at L2GD. She has the right balance of praise, constructive criticism, and encouragement as she worked with April. This lesson is perfect for a beginner or intermediate pet stylist. Judy's down-to-earth teaching flair makes it easy to understand.
Our guess is you will find it easy to apply many of her suggestions to your next groom. It doesn't matter if you're in a ring or just grooming for your clients. A great groom always reflects positively on your salon.
Approximate total running time:  57 minutes

In this video you will learn:
  • how to critique yourself.
  • how to set in the rear angulation with a guard comb.
  • resources to groom any dog to look its best.
  • how to set in the junction point at the withers.
  • what to do when you mess something up while in the ring.


It's like having a private coach right in your computer every month!

What to Bring to a Grooming Competition
or Certification Testing         

Amy Triezenberg has spent a lot of time traveling with dogs.  She's been on the pet grooming competition circuit for over thirteen years.  She's learned the hard way which items will come in handy on the road and in hotel rooms.

You're traveling with dogs and toting a lot of equipment.  Dogs are going to have accidents.  Equipment is going to break.  People will borrow your stuff.  A whole host of other situations are going to crop up to make your travels frustrating and chaotic.

This lesson is loaded with great ideas; ideas to make your life a lot easier and more organized.  Many of them are unique for those traveling to dog shows, grooming competitions, or certification testing - anywhere you need the dog to look its best and you need to be on top of your game.

Even if you're an experienced pet traveler, we bet you will pick up a few new ideas to apply to your next road trip.
