  • Anyone else grooming in Western NY?

    I'm just trying to find out if there is anyone else on this board grooming in the western NY area. (Buffalo/ Jamestown area) I would love to put a Groomers association together in this region and most of the "locals" I spoken to have NO interest.....

    I live in cny, and I still know how you feel though. I was trying to get an apprenticeship type thing around here and none of the groomers were interested in that either. I am trying again soon, maybe putting resumes out this week. I did find someone here to help me out, and there is so much info on this board! But a groomers association sounds like a great idea. Buffalo is about 2 hrs from here, but still.

      Hi Jeanette...your name sounds really familiar...

      There are a few of us on this board from WNY. Im in Lockport. Allan and Terry I know are in WNY area and there was another girl whose screen name escapes me.

      I tried a few years ago to get a few people together now and then, and only had a few that were I gave up on it. If it is something you want to do, let me know, I have a few grooming friends in the Amherst area that would probably be interested too.

        Jessica- Thanks for the reply. I did work and train for Petsmart. Also the cover of Groomer to Groomer was me as well. I would love to compile a list of names and start something in the spring. I would really love to get an official association started, it is something that could seriously benefit all of us in this area. Lets see what we can do.

          where exactly are you (2 hrs from buffalo) i assume near syracuse?? That still wouldn't be too bad and if all goes well the drive would really be worth it. As I would like to have a monthly meeting (or every 2 months) with each having focus on one specific breed being the main purpose. Email me with your name and contact info and I will keep you posted. Thanks for the interest! [email protected]
