  • Finally introducing myself

    I've been lurking around and reading posts for a about a year now so I figure I should go ahead and introduce myself . Better late then never right?

    I've always known that the only job for me would have to be with animals. Before grooming I was an assistant manager at one on the local shelters. I love shelter work and hope to stay involved but in this area it is nearly impossible to make a living there and it becomes very emotionally draining.

    I had thought about grooming before but I am really hard on myself and a big perfectionist so I had convinced myself that I wouldn't be good enough. My boss was looking for a groomer when she saw my resume. She was impressed enough with my interview that she offered to hire me on as a bather and train me in grooming. I've been there about 8 months now and I'm now up to doing a few dogs on my own. Mostly easy breeds like Shih-Tzus and Goldens but I'm getting there.

    Right now I don't have any dogs personally since we rent but are looking to buy a house within the next year and a dog within 2 years. We also have an active 2yr old boy who eats up most of my spare time lol.

      Hi & welcome. Sounds like you are on the right track. Back when I was in school, I was always the goofy one who rasied her hand and offered to to the golden. I love grooming Goldens. Anyhoo, again, Welcome!
