Each year the association holds a grooming seminar aimed at people of all levels of experience who would like to begin to learn, or improve their hand stripping technique. Everyone from absolute beginners to professional groomers are welcome.

We always choose centrally based premises with plenty of room to set up areas for differing levels of experience. Top breed specialist groomers are there to give advice and support and during the day there's always a specialist hand stripping demonstration by a top groomer. Many levels of grooming are covered, right from beginners through to how to prepare for the show ring, as well as the all-important 'finishing' for those who want to turn their wires out to a higher standard.

Grooming tables, equipment and even dogs are available to borrow if you don't have your own and there's a grooming supply shop where you can purchase your own trimming knives, chalk blocks etc. Delegates are requested to bring a packed lunch but tea, coffee, soft drinks and home made cakes are provided.

Due to popular demand we will be hosting 2 seminars in March and September 2020 (venues to be confirmed). If you would like to be notified by email or text, please complete the form below.
