Colin Taylor Seminar
I attended a seminar with Colin Taylor May 17th 2015 these seminars teach you new techniques and modern styles. Colin is known for being one of the best dog groomers in the country and I was lucky enough to win a masterclass with him at his salon in Somerset, so will be doing that in the near future!
A bit about Colin Taylor - he is a worldwide champion dog groomer with over 30 years of experience!
At the age of just 16 he began his grooming career in 1985 at London Academy Of Grooming, Colin is certified by the UK City & Guilds plus Certified Master Groomer in the United States. Whilst in the United States Colin won best groomed dog in show at every major grooming show, plus best all-round groomer.
He has also been awarded best scissored dog countless times. Just 3 months after he had been grooming he did his first ever competition of hand stripping a Cairn Terrier and won! Colin now travels the world teaching and judging people with their grooming. At every seminar he says "never put a dog through pain or suffering just because you want it to look perfect! The dogs welfare comes first" which is true groomers do have skills but the skills can only be used if the dogs coat is kept in good condition and if not we have to do what is best for the dog.
I've learnt so much from him - I even have him on Facebook and have his number so if I ever have any problems with "What's the best way to style this dog" I can just give Colin a call!
I attend seminars like these regularly to learn more modern techniques and to improve upon my skills.
