Brusher Bather

CERTIFICATE PROGRAM by Teri DiMarino Your ability to do your job, and do it right, separates you from being "just a bather" to a position that contributes to the finished product in the salon. Teri believes that a good bath, brush and dry is 50% of a great groom. The bathing room is where most stylists started. Before future groomers begin to think of clipping coat, they must first know what to expect from the hair, and how to treat it to obtain desired results. Surprisingly, many great B/B’s remain in the bathing room, preferring the security of knowing there will always be a need for their expert services. Bathers–in–training, "groomer wannabes", seasoned groomer techs and salon owners will benefit from this day–long program with tips on equipment and products to make the job easier. From getting the dog ready for the tub, to finding the right shampoo through proper bathing and blow–drying techniques, Teri will cover the B/B fundamentals. Safety issues and handling will be stressed.

Tools of the Trade & How to Use Them From brushes and nail clippers, muzzles to grooming loops, Teri covers equipment basics, highlighting correct uses, in an effort to make the work easier and more comfortable for pet and bather. “These techniques and tools will make the finished groom a true work of art,” says Teri. Anals and ears will be discussed.

Dematting…It’s Not What It Used To Be Everyone has a technique for dematting a neglected pet. For some, it’s a shave–down and then entering the pelt in a Mat Contest. For others, it’s a time–consuming, hair–splitting experience, destined to take its toll on the pet, the B/B or both. Teri examines the most common and effective products, tools and techniques for the demat dilemma without getting all tangled up.

What’s In Those Bubbles??? Shampoos, Conditioners & Spray Tocopherol, Ergocalciferol, Sodium Chloride. Teri takes a “groomers–eye” view of the stuff we use every day in language we can understand. Shampoos, sprays and conditioners are our most expendable items but, what do we really know to select the right product for our situation? (Those scary words are techno–speak for vitamin E, vitamin D and simple table salt, often found in many grooming products.)

Getting the Most Out of Your Bathing & Drying Time Bathing and drying are the most underestimated aspects of our jobs. Techniques can make or break a groom. The ability to properly apply products and thoroughly cleaning and then drying the pet will have a direct influence on the finish. You will hear about time–saving equipment and techniques. This program is six hours long and is included in the Do-It-All admission or can be purchased separately. See Schedule and Registration for starting times and fees. Program includes Trade show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

BUSINESS

SUMMIT Starting Right & Staying On Track

by Terri DiMarino Let’s face it, do we ever really know everything there is about running a business? There is always room for input, and this four-session summit will help answer some of the questions you may have about your business. From opening the doors, finding clients, hiring employees, record keeping, payroll and pricing, it is a daunting task just to keep your head above water and make a profit.

Part 1) Building the Ideal Grooming Salon: How do you set yourself apart in a sea of competitors? Develop a personal brand! This class will help you define and develop your own brand. Whether you are mobile, corporate, solo, or work with other groomers, you can use these skills to distinguish yourself and create your own voice in your everyday workplace. Unleash the power of “You” in your workplace and watch your client base grow!

Part 2) The Paper Chase:

Hiring and firing employees is never easy and governmental regulations require a business owner to do a lot more to keep things on the straight and narrow with the labor boards and your employees. Teri will go through some of the fine detail on the paperwork that is necessary in your business to keep you in compliance and avoid problems down the road.

Part 3) Pricing, Percentages & Profits: How do you create a viable

self–sustaining business which will sustain, endure, and thrive? In this seminar, you will learn strategies to focus on revenue streams and increase your business profit margin, as well as how to build your business to succeed financially and stabilize your revenue.

Part 4) Are you an Employee or an Independent Contractor?

This has been an ongoing dilemma in the pet grooming industry for years. In an effort to avoid excessive taxation, some groomers, or employers, resort to some pretty creative employment policies. While they may solve issues in the beginning, alternative tactics can really become a huge can of worms for everybody. Teri will spell out the pros and cons, and also address the most common questions about the differences between paying commission, hourly or salary, and try to shed some light on this controversial area. This class is sure to be an eye opener on all fronts.

Grab a notebook and leave equipped with responses to comments such as “I don’t want my dog to look like...”, “He’s a rescue”, “I don’t like this haircut”, “But they are cheaper down the street”, “I need a discount because I have 4 dogs”, and so many more. This fast paced and action–packed hour promises to entertain and enlighten you!

WEEKEND SEMINARS – SUNDAY Streamline Your Grooming Process With Less Liquids Dave Campanella Let’s be frank. Your business runs on shampoo, and “Tub Time” is the most critical phase of the grooming process. There are so many brands, products and smells…Where do you start? The liquid products you choose can definitely make or break your success. Learn what key ingredients to look for, understand pH, bust the myths behind dilution rates, conditioners, whiteners, deodorizers, facial washes and more. Most importantly you’ll learn the science–based facts and references for getting the best results with less inventory, less effort and less expense!

Let’s Airbrush! No Talent Needed! Milena Kon Want to do something extraordinary and out of this world for your clients? Want to try something excitingly new and colorful, and out of the box? Milena will help you gain confidence and mastery over the airbrush, a complex tool with numerous ways of use. Learn the importance of choosing the right equipment for each design and understanding on how to create simple or broad lines, to adding a single perfect rose or airbrush an entire bouquet of flowers. Let your imagination go wild, and let’s airbrush!

Ouch! It hurts: Ergonomics, Grooming & You Chris Anthony Not just another buzz word, ergonomics is an applied science focused on our tools & workspaces working with us instead of against us. This seminar will explain ergonomics and demystify it as it relates to grooming; including tools, posture and stretches designed to keep you healthy and pain free.

Salon Trims for the Everyday Groomer Cheryl Purcell

Somewhere between a show trim and a shave down is what we do every day. We all want to be creative and do those big beautiful trims on clients’ pets, but it’s not always practical. Cheryl will review how to determine what is an appropriate trim for each pet, what is a good maintenance length for the client and pet, and discuss the infamous Puppy Cut and what it means to clients. There will be before and after photos and live demos.

Super Styling Drop Coat Breeds’ Heads Jay Scruggs First impressions are everything in the art of grooming. The first thing your client should see when the dog is groomed is a great expression. In this seminar, Jay will take you through the grooming steps of different head styles. You will learn breed specific techniques as well as different head style options. This seminar is for those groomers who want to fine tune their techniques to wow their clients immediately upon seeing their dog. Not all drop coats should have the same head!

Speed Grooming Michell Evans Time is money! In this demonstration Michell will show you her step by step process with attachment combs that will revolutionize your grooming. You will be able to create fabulous styles and make money too! “The Evans Method” will change the way you groom forever. You will be able to create more beautiful and more expensive grooms for your clients in nearly the same amount of time!

With years of competing, she has taken her knowledge and transferred it to her pet clients. Learn how to set lines, scissor and bring your poodle trims to the next level!

How to NOT Get Bitten by a Dog Fernando Camacho

Most dog bites are actually our fault — not the dogs. Learn exactly what you need to do to create good interactions with dogs that encourage positive encounters and keep all those pointy teeth off you. Fern will show you how to recognize the warning signs and set up the situation so that dogs don’t get into a position they shouldn’t be in.

The Safe Cat Michael Penn Michael will demonstrate safe and productive handling while teaching safe guards, and proper use of tools. Knowing the correct handling of kitties will not only brighten your day but will also add a large revenue stream to the groomers that are weary to groom them due to handling concern.


WEEKEND SEMINARS – SUNDAY Life Hacks for the Pet Stylist Laura Hearn What happens when a dog kicks your clippers off your table and the tab on the 5 in 1 breaks off? Duct tape it of course! House–call groomer turned MacGuiver, Laura Hearn, gives you “life hacks” (three second fix-its) for everyday situations that you may encounter that will either make your grooming life easier or allow you to move forward with your day when nothing goes as planned.

Mobile with Laura Jayne
