  • Hi all!

    Hi everyone! I am new to this forum, but I've been reading it for a short time and love it! I'm a CMG with IPG and ISCC. I've been grooming for about 25 years or so. I ran a salon for 22 years, recently sold it to a long time employee and have now built a grooming studio in my home. Grooming dogs is my passion and I feel so fortunate to be doing something so very worthwhile!

        Thank you! Yes, I'm ready to slow down a bit too. I'm 58 this summer and have been in the grooming industry since I was about 30.

          Hi! Thank you. I think this is a fantastic way to learn about our industry, and it's so great to be immersed among groomers!!!

              Thanks for the welcome!

              Congratulations on you new business. This is the best business in the world to be in... from home OR shop. Us old groomers never stop, we just change locations!!!

              I finally moved into my home only because I felt I'd been in the salon so long (since /87), I think I was finally in a burn-out that I couldn't seem to shake. But I must say, it is amazingly hard to make the transition from the daily adrenaline rush of go, go, go, to... not!

                      I know, right? I can take my toast and coffee right into the studio in the mornings.

                      But it's so easy to go and give my two bengals a cuddle every now and then too, so the home thing does seem to have some things going for it so far...

                      Thanks everyone for the welcoming words...it's so amazing to be among groomers! I just love it...but how do you keep track of who is who??? Just practice I guess?
