THURSDAY

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/ Bs 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 also 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, thoroughly clean and then dry 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 & is included in the Do-It-All admission or can be purchased separately. See Schedule & Registration for starting times & fees. Program includes Trade show on Fri., Sat. & Sun.

FRIDAY

Groomer’s Business Summit: Starting Right & By Teri 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.

STAYING ON TRACK

Part 1) Building the Ideal Grooming Salon: (9–10 AM) This slide presentation will take you from the floor to the ceiling and wall to wall in the construction of a new, state of the art grooming salon that maximizes space and profits. Highlights will include the fine art of setting up a big salon in a small area by using labor-saving equipment, effective storage and “vertical square footage”. High visibility grooming and client comfort will be addressed, as well as some hidden aspects of salon ownership, such as seeking locations, leases, landlords and advertising.

“What are my margins?” “Am I making a profit?” “Why are my employees making more than me?” These, and a lot more questions, will be answered to help keep your salon productive and profitable. Payroll options will also be a topic of conversation in this seminar.

Part 2) The Paper Chase: (11–12 PM) 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 4) Are You an Employee or an Independent Contractor?: (4–5 PM) 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.

Part 3) Pricing, Percentages and Profits: (2–3 PM) Teri will share her business savvy and expertise on running a lucrative salon. “What do I need to consider before setting my prices?” “How do I raise my prices”

Poodle Series Quick & Trendy Poodle Pet Trim By Jonathan David (9-10AM) A great haircut is your best advertisement, but who has time to be a perfectionist? You do! A stylish Poodle pet trim isn't as time consuming as you think with the help of snap on combs, quality shears, and some time saving tips! Poodles are one of America’s most popular breeds and every groomer sees plenty of them, but often owners think a great Poodle trim is too much maintenance. Jonathan will show you how to give a great haircut that's a walking billboard of your work without too much time on your part and too much maintenance for your customers.

Poodle in a German Trim (11-12PM) By Michell Evans

The German Trim is great for those clients who “don’t want their Poodle to look like a Poodle”. The great secret is that this style does fit the Poodle breed standard! Michell will show you how to create this elegant sporty trim using snap-on combs of various lengths and then blending and finishing with scissors. She will demonstrate the clipper work on the face and feet. Michell will also explain the choices and techniques for the tail and ears.

What Poodle? (2-3PM)

By Jessica Moore

Poodles are such a versatile breed, but one of their best attributes is their coat! You can literally do whatever style you want. Don't want a Poodle anymore? Turn it into a Portuguese Water Dog or Bedlington Terrier or one of my favorites, a Kerry Blue. I am sure we all have those little Toy Poodle clients that prefer the infamous "Teddy Bear" face and no shaved feet. I will go over alternative trims for Poodles and why you may want to choose one style over another depending on that individual dog's coat, conformation and lifestyle of the owners. I will take a purebred Poodle and turn it into anything but a Poodle and explain why.

Everyday Dogs: The Doodle (4-5) By Annie Williams

Feeling overwhelmed with the all the doodles coming into your salon? Annie will walk you through how to educate your clients on their dog’s specific needs, to carving out a stylish yet functional haircut. Learn a fool-proof system with snap on combs and scissor techniques to help increase your efficiency and put more money in your pocket.

Strip & Clip? Why Not?!

Jessica Moore I know, I know, you don't handstrip. It's not for everyone and that's fine but have you ever considered a strip and clip? I love wire coated breeds, I love everything about them.

I will also explain how I price my strip and clips differently from handstrip only dogs.

A Groomer's Guide to Working & Herding Group Dogs

This session will reveal the origin of all 7 groups of dog breeds, with special focus on the Working and Herding group dogs, and will help any groomer, from beginner to master,

categorize coat types and learn the best strategies to groom each type. Learn what grooming tools and techniques are best suited for each coat type.

Heads & Tails, Both Are Important Jessica Moore I am all about balance and blending, even in a simple shave down.

This is key to separate your service from every other service around!
