From the Author...
How To Make BIG MONEY Grooming Small Dogs! (And be your own boss too).
In fact it IS easier than most people think! That's why the detailed methods and procedures of the craft have been kept secret and exclusive for so long. Now, you can always have a dollar in your pocket, get paid cash money every time you provide a service that you will enjoy and will be proud to do! Those without your knowledge and skills will be envious of your newly found talent and ability. You will be able to do with their dogs what they themselves can not. And they will gladly pay you, and thank you for doing it. You can cover your expenses, and afford to make purchases for the joys and necessities of life ... when you feel like it. Work at home if you like or in a shop of your own. Or as a "home groomer" in your clients home. Or you may choose a grooming salon, kennel, or veterinary hospital, where your services will be in demand and well paid for. You know, at one time women did their own hair, and then beauty shops took over the job. Auto owners used to wash the family car and now it's done quickly and easier letting professionals do it. And so it is with Canine styling and Grooming. It's here to stay, a lucrative respected craft with potential and big rewards... and now you can have your share. You can gain security and learn the joy of self employment, believe it! Thousands of my students have benefited from what I discovered by devising new methods to safely control pet canines; and safely and quickly produce a quality job in a minimum amount of time ...and get well paid for it!

Your future money worries can be a thing of the past. Unbelievable? Well, just look in your yellow pages and see all those ads under "Pet Grooming". A business can't afford to advertise month after month if it's not profitable. And just look at how many there are! And with pet ownership increasing at the rate of 15% each year it's no wonder. Someone must keep them well groomed and healthy...it could be YOU!!!

(From Foreword)
...the author spent many months reviewing and revising drafts of the text and his portfolio of sketches. The Goal? To produce instructions and illustrations so accurate, that when processed into graphics, would clearly translate his precise directions. With this precision and clarity achieved, the student-reader could easily understand and practice the lessons given. The end result is a book that delivers dog grooming and styling instructions previously unavailable at any price.

This Book is absolutely riviting! "How To Make Big Money Grooming Small Dogs!" lies next to my bed at night, and before I doze off I read another interesting chapter. I have really learned a lot about styling Poodle faces, and my friends have commented on how lovely my dogs look. I have followed the proceedures and details step by step. I'm not ready for a dog show yet, but my doggies are the best on the block.

Thanks to the author,for a facinating,well illustrated, practical book.

"This book has enabled me to get a job in Dog Grooming."
My interest in learning Dog Grooming has been with me most of my life, but being a single mother it was an impossible dream to go away to school to learn it. By my purchasing this book, and studying it, and purchasing an inexpensive clipper, and practicing on my own toy poodle it was enough to give me the confidence to apply for a groomer trainee position at a local kennel/grooming shop. They are putting me on payroll, on a part time basis for now. Anyway, the purpose of my writing this is to tell you that without this book I know I would never had gotten this far. I can never thank the author enough. This book is EXCELLENT! It covers every topic!

"You can...."Make Big Money Grooming Small Dogs!"
I am usually sceptical of books that make big promises, but "How to Make Big Money Grooming Small Dogs" is a winner. I've always wanted to be a groomer, but couldn't afford the cost of a grooming school. Well I'm here to tell you that this book is all you need. Nine months ago I couldn't even hold a clipper, and now I have my own profitable mobil grooming business! This book is clearly written, beautifully illustrated, and easy to follow. Best of all, the author generously reveals numerous trade secrets and sources of unique equipment to save you time and money. I highly recommend this excellent "how to" guide to current and would-be groomers alike. If you ever thought of going into the dog grooming business, this book is the ticket!
