Surviving (And Thriving) in the Midst of Super Stores

Teri DiMarino

Are the “superstores” making you depressed? Do you feel like the water in your tub…running in circles and going nowhere but down? Do you like your independence and want to stay out of the corporate race, but feel like you’re being swallowed up by the “big guys”? Like so many professionals today, groomers are recognizing the need to specialize. Specialization targets a market and allows you to pour your time and talents into one area which tends to help you become the best in that specific field. Be it specialized boutique retail or your knack for working with difficult pets, Teri will help you to make lemonade out of life’s lemons!

Bring on the Brachycephalic Breeds!

Teri DiMarino

Anybody who has been “in dogs” for any period of time knows what a brachycephalic breed is. These dogs have short muzzles and broad heads and include such popular breeds as English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers and Shih Tzu’s, to name a few. These breeds come with their own set of issues that can cause problems, especially in the grooming process. They can have breathing problems, they do not handle heat well and those facial wrinkles need special care to keep them clean. Just washing the face of one of these breeds can be a challenge! Teri will focus on some of the problems unique to these breeds and how we can overcome these issues in the salon, sending out a clean, well-groomed dog with a sweet looking and smelling face.

Looking Out for #1! Groomer Health Issues

Teri DiMarino

It’s no secret that pet styling is a physically demanding profession. We like what we’re doing, and most of us hope for long grooming careers. However, there are things that can make grooming uncomfortable at the very least, if not impossible. Back, neck, and shoulder problems abound. Respiratory illnesses are not uncommon. Repetitive motion disorders plague us, and many old-timers are wearing hearing aids. Many of us think we are “Super Groomers” and these physical ailments will never happen to us. Think again! Teri will share simple ergonomic techniques, sanitary procedures, and safety measures that should be in place in all salons to prevent issues that can cut your career short.
