Let’s Hear From Others…
I want to thank you again for helping me get started in the wonderful world of dog grooming. With minimal advertising (one day a week in the newspaper and word-of-mouth) I have over 150 customers and add new ones every week. This gives me enough work to stay home with my family! Thanks again for making it easy and affordable to start my own business.
I have obtained, to date, forty customers with only a small sign in my yard and no other advertisement. These customers have been very satisfied and some have scheduled for the future. I am excited for what spring may hold once my advertising has been circulated. Thanks to your grooming program I feel very comfortable and confident in what I am doing. I commend you on creating such a thorough and educational series. Thanks again!
I just wanted to send you guys a big Thank You! I purchased your program between 4-5 years ago. I was very happy with it. I worked as a vet tech at that time and I also graduated vet tech school and got my license. I wanted to change my profession to grooming and open my own shop because I was always unhappy with the various veterinary hospitals that I worked in at that time. After completing your program I started grooming out of my basement. A year after, I decided to open my own shop. I had 50 clients at that time and now only three and a half years later I have almost 500. I never advertised! I simply asked my clients to spread the word ?
Again, thanks for all the grooming tips. They will be very helpful as your manual and videos are. Without them I would still be stuck doing a job I did not like. I love dog grooming and plan to open a shop someday.
I am occasionally working with the groomer in town and am grooming dogs at home when I have the opportunity. I really enjoy working with the dogs and after I graduate from our home-school this year I plan to continue grooming at home and may decide to open a shop in the near future. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you through your materials and will highly recommend it to others interested in the trade.
Since you don’t know me (personally) I will give you a little data. As you know, people differ. It seems I am more critical than most. Maybe I am overly critical and expect too much when it comes to courses. I have been VERY pleased with your course! And I don’t even see any room for improvement! And this is a statement that seldom passes my lips. The videos are terrific. Good instruction verbally, good shots with video camera. Packed with information, no ‘dead’ time with fillers of un-important verbiage. Camera shots get right in there, so you see a close up of what is going on. I feel they couldn’t be better! The manual: also great. And the open book ‘tests’ that were devised are very thorough. Very impressed with that also. The concern of spending the amount on the package…I am glad it is the price it is, yet I can honestly say…after seeing it…it could be double the price and I would still think it not too high for what is received. The only thing I could not tell yet…was…would this lady really answer my questions once she had my money? I soon found out, yes…she will! She was willing to answer all of my questions…even those that were not a part of the material I purchased. That is very rare! Thank You for a job well done.
Thank you (for comments on pictures of practice dogs groomed). Those pictures are some of the first dogs that I and a friend had done. Of course, I have gotten a lot better. I like doing this and it is great hours and the customers NEVER complain. The owners of the dogs that I have done have had nothing but high praise for what I do and I owe it to your program for all that I have learned. It was easy, simple and fun. I love doing the dogs and you deal with so many personalities and it is wonderful! I have been told that I am better than the other grooming shops and some have been here for more than 10 years. Thanks again.
Your manual and videos are so professional! I am a Techie for Packard Bell and you are a natural For Technical writing…I should know. I sent for your package in June and I’m just getting in to it for serious study. Had to tell you how great it is put together and how happy I am with your product. I am going to purchase a 2 man shop from a guy who wants to retire. This will take place in Oct. I don’t want to miss this opportunity and you are making this all possible. Thanks again.
Just want to let you know your customer skills had a big part in my decision to go with your training package. Your qualifications came from an excellent source as well. Just wanted to let you know, if I haven’t already, I work in the Human Resources Dept. of our local hospital and customer service of utmost importance. So, needless to say, this is what I am aware of. Keep up the good work!
I just want to Thank You for taking the time to write and make the videos on this amazing topic-Grooming! My passion is animals and I have searched around my area to find someone who would be willing to teach me to groom. No one would help. Some, because of lack of time. Others, because they didn’t want the competition. Some were just plain rude! I have eight dogs myself, some for breeding and some for pets. But I love all of them. You’re actually helping me achieve my goals and dreams (to work with animals). Thank you.
The main reason I started this was to learn about the business end of grooming. I already have several years experience grooming dogs, but was not sure how to get started on my own. Thanks for giving me the confidence. Your manual answered all of my questions. I want to say that the videos were great and I learned a lot from them and the book. Your program was easy to follow. Thank you.
Please let me state that I am very excited about this new venture! I am very happy I chose this package. I can’t state enough how much this manual has taught me. It is laid out in such a manner that made it so easy to go through, yet I was able to retain what I learned. It is very thorough. It gave me detailed information without being overwhelming. Thank you!
We found your package very informative. It was the perfect solution for us, for neither of us had the time to go away to school, plus having the videos we could review whenever we needed to. After our first month we invested in a stand dryer. Money well spent. We learned very quickly, as you stated in your video, time is money and drying is very time consuming. At this time most of our customers have come from referrals from satisfied customers plus we have put a notice in the newspaper announcing our new business. I want to thank you very much for this package, as it has enabled my sister and I to pursue a satisfying venture together.
Your package was wonderful and has helped turn my life around. I am now the proud owner of a very successful dog grooming salon called ‘Puddles ‘n Paws’ out here in Southeastern Idaho. My clientele is already huge and I am constantly receiving praise and compliments on my work. The training was quick, easy to understand and very thorough, and I especially appreciated the videos. So, thank you so very much. You have helped me fulfill dreams and taught me so much.
I want to thank you for your program. I was working full time when I ordered the materials and now I am working part time and grooming dogs part time. Soon I will be grooming full time thanks to you! There would have been no other way for me to continue working and learn to groom. I could not afford to take off work for grooming classes. Thank you so much!
That you so much for the wonderful training package. I am a graduate of XXXX School of Dog Grooming. I graduated in 1999, but there were a few things that I feel they did not go over enough or at all. When I graduated I practiced on dogs for about a year and then decided to open my own business out of my home. My dream was to have a full time salon, but I am was so nervous. Then I found your package and was so excited. It was so informative and so much fun. I have learned so much from it and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in dog grooming. It gave me the confidence I needed to fulfill my dream. In March ‘The Pampered Pooch’ is moving to a store front and I am thrilled. Thank You so much.
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the very informative schooling. I was surprised with the videos and book not to mention the email help! I believe and hope I’m on my way to do something that I really enjoy. I know that I would not be able to do it any other way. The video that showed the spaniel getting dematted helped very much! I wouldn’t of been able to attempt to do that dog without it. The owner was very happy with the results and I believe the dog was too. Thanks so much again….
Your materials have been truly wonderful, and has helped me greatly in my pursuit of working with dogs. I am a nurse, and have recently cut back to part time hours because of word of mouth on my grooming abilities. I could never have done this without your material. Thanks so much.
Your manual has taught me so much. I have groomed Schnauzers for about 10 years and now I have been given the confidence to expand and do other breeds. I have opened my own shop in the small country town of Raymond. Business is great and I have had lots of positive responses. The first cock-a-poo I groomed…the lady came back in the shop the next week and told me that was the best the dog had ever been groomed. I was shocked. I love it and all the pets. I did 36 dogs my first week! I have flyers and business cards around town. I have gotten support from 3 vets in referring customers to me. All the other programs I checked into were so much more expensive. I really got my money’s worth with yours. Thanks for your help with my new career.
First I want to thank you for allowing me to move on to my own business, after working as a dental assistant for 20 years. It’s so nice to be my own boss. I make my own hours, days and vacations! My business is doing very well. I have a salon right next to my home. I live out in the country and am so surprised on how far people will travel to have their pets groomed. My vet, that I’ve gone to for years no longer does grooming, so he has been kind enough to send me his clients. What luck! Thank you again.
Upon receiving this packet I had been grooming for approximately six months. I have now been grooming for over a year. I have had a wonderful time and have been working with wonderful clients. I have had no complaints and a tremendous amount of work. I now have weekly and monthly dogs that I do. I quickly made enough to cover my supplies and the cost of your package. It was a joy studying under you. Thanks again.
Thank you so very much for everything you have done to support me this year. My business is really taking off and I’m enjoying it so much. Wishing you the happiest of holidays, and again Thanks....
I have been up and running for about 8 months now and have already about 60 clients. I am getting new calls every month! This has always been my dream and I couldn’t have done it without you. I just wanted you to know that I belong to several groomers lists. Most of the time people say there is no way to learn without going to school. I was beginning to get a complex because of all the negative statements about distance learning. Well, I made a friend who has groomed for 30 years. He said that I do an excellent job and that he has tried to train groomers out of school who have horrible habits and miss part of the groom, etc. He was really asking questions about your program then. He thought it was quality teaching! So, it gave my self esteem a boost too! Thanks again….
I want to thank you so much for the materials that you offer…it was the best way for me to learn and your techniques are easy to follow. I have to be honest…my husband said there is NO WAY that you can learn to groom dogs from something you found on the internet…he does not say that now! He watched some of the tapes and was very impressed! I have been grooming for over a year now (full time) and it looks like I will double my income for the next year! I must tell you this…a couple with a Maltese were trying to find a new groomer. They came to me and I didn’t see them for a couple of months, so I figured they were not happy with me. They came back and said they had tried all the shops in the area and that I was the ‘winner’…made me feel so good. I do this dog every 2 weeks now. Thanks again.
I’m glad I chose you to learn all about dog grooming. I found it very knowledgeable. You did a great job with the tapes and book. Thanks….
Just a few lines to thank you for your very informative ‘All About Dog Grooming’ packet. I can’t tell you how invaluable it has become to me. I study your videos constantly. Each time I view them, I learn something new that I didn’t notice, or pay attention to previously. Your step-by-step check list is a life saver. I always review your video prior to grooming a dog-even if it is the same breed I groomed a few days ago. I have used many of your suggestions in your Business Strategies with success. During my hands-on training time I have been terribly concerned about my finished product, but everyone insists on paying me and they have been bringing their dogs back for regular grooming. Thanks!

You could easily be getting similar results. You see, these people quoted above started out just like you… very determined to learn this valuable trade, but with limited means to receive training following the typical schooling methods. The difference between these successful individuals and yourself is that they took a critical step. They went through the program and began applying the simple training and marketing techniques to begin making a difference in their lives. They are on their way to a new career doing something they enjoy… and they are earning Great Money too!
