    Default Canine Reference Smart Phone App!

    This is BIG!! I am diligently working on a multi level smart phone app for us! It is a lot of work; and I have bumped my skin & coat book project to get this product started instead. And let me tell you, I am learning a TON on the designing aspect of this! Thankfully the scissors I am selling I haven't had to actually FORGE myself (haha),,,I just pack & ship those once they are in, so that project has been a lot more simple than I'd imagined! But I digress...
    This app will begin as a series of charts encompassing canine anatomy, grooming and profile aspects, a glossary of canine terms and breed specific grooming charts- beginning with my Canine Reference Series charts. Levels up will divide each chart into sub-charts- for example- the joint & ligament chart will have sub charts covering areas such as the knee, the wrist, etc., the anatomy chart will have a sub chart for just the paw and nails, or just the head and face, etc. There will be a separate chapter for just breed standards and profile grooms. Each of the breed groups will be sub charted & divided breed by breed, with grooming notes and instructions. This app will be for professional groomers, CMTs, and CATs, and anyone learning about canine structure, the mechanics of grooming, and an invaluable guide to have at hand whenever you need it.
    The hardest part is finishing one level before I can harness my ideas for the next level! I look forward with great anticipation for this app arriving for our industry. There are NO grooming or canine specific apps currently available except for Acupressure, so I am working as fast and thoroughly as I can to get it done before someone else gets the jump first! Wish me luck!

    My hubby builds apps and I am always bugging him to build some for groomers. Good idea. Suggestion: most people don't buy without seeing, so do a sample/ trial or get the ads .

    I am happy and sad... My boyfriend has been saying he'd make one for over a year... My friend who owns her shop and has been grooming forever with her mom offered to help us too. He bought the software and everything and I told him this morning when I saw your post that he missed the boat! Oh well. I can't wait for it to come out, I think it's a great idea!

    Yes, thru the App Store, you can open the app and see the different levels and page faces.

    Default Canine Reference Smart Phone App!

    I'll buy it! I've been desperately wishing for a grooming reference app. I can't just google a dog picture because I get horrible reception at work, so when I need a reminder on a breed I haven't done in awhile, this app would be perfect! Can't wait!
