Extensive knowledge of canine breed standards and their appropriate grooming styles.
Consulting directly with dog owners regarding grooming needs, behavioral tendencies, and health conditions.
Leveraging my love for, and understanding of, canines to effectively calm nervous or anxious dogs and handle unpredictable situations.
Forging trusting relationships with clients and maintained consistently booked grooming schedule; specifically requested by name by customers due to outstanding performance and superior interpersonal abilities.
My skills in dog grooming and care, along with my dynamic collaborative abilities and my positive attitude and work ethic, position me to excel in this role, and I am confident my additional qualifications will readily translate to your environment.
