The coat must be long enough to apply scissoring, clipping and or hand stripping skills and to make a change in the overall appearance. 


Yes, this is your time to shine and show your team grooming skills to complete a salon pet trim in l hour with one of your fellow team members. 

 

Team finishing is an art and should be applied with safety for the pet and the professional at all times so lifting the foot to clip a pad creates a safety issue if your team member is working on the head! Lifting more than 1 foot off the table is a safety issue. 

 

Demonstrate your procedure to complete the necessary tasks before the last 15 minutes of team grooming and styling. Show how you prepare your pets in your salon before 2 members are required to work on the pet to complete the trim on time. So lets safety up and practice up and demonstrate how to team style with safety. 

 

Come join the fun because this is a class for everyone. Share your skills and knowledge and make a difference today for a safer tomorrow.
