And whatever happened to the Groomers Licensing Founders Committee that was supposedly formed way back in 1996. It's been 12 years? I can't find a web site where they have information about it, other than mentions in poignant articles on Petgroomer.com and in G2G. Who are they, what are they doing and how can groomers help?

Jonna,
 
  How can you differentiate yourself those "bad groomers" and how will the public know how to find a good groomer ( you ) without some sort of guide?  The Associations registry of Groomers ( on the web ) would let them know where to find members, and an explanation of just what they can expect will tell them why they want a member to groom their pet.  Don't fear licensing because you do not have a in class eduction every proposal I have heard of offers credit for on the job time as a qualifier to receive a license.
 
  This is one of the stumbling blocks that must be removed before we can join together.  There are three different groups "the home or self-taught group", the "on the job or shop educated group" and the "in class or school educated group".  We must remember we all chose this field because we love animals and wanted to make them look and feel better.
 
Thanks 
Eric  


How Eric? I didn't know I had to. My reputation as a professional groomer speaks for itself. Short and sweet. My only concern is that I wasn't schooled.

Jonna,

  I wasn't personally attaching you, what I was trying to say was.  What if you are new in town?  How would you find a new groomer for your pet?  One benefit of a National Association would be, new customers could find a good groomer ( you ) on the website.

  If they say, just asked a neighbor where to go they could get a less caring groom than you.


I am sorry, if I offending you.

Eric

Good Lord, Vets cut toenails too short.


I think you may be confused ...edited.... The $300.00 was over an eye injury not a toe nail cut to short.


 

As far as the "Groomers Licensing Founders Committee" they only met once maybe twice. I think in was in Chicago? Then Disbanded - non-existent, except in name only! 
As we have seen  anyone can call them self a groomer, claim and exaggerate whatever experience they want to have, and claim to have started a pet grooming business using the Internet. Anyone can also start an association, institution, build  a web site and in a month, that grooming business, and web site can be gone. Curious how so many pet grooming sites still exist, even though the businesses either never existed or have long since gone. 

Has anyone ever even seen a web site for the (GLFC) "Groomers Licensing Founders Committee" ?

Citing our previous history, I believe it is in the best interest of the board that YOU not address me or engage me in conversation for any reason. Please delete the part of my post where you quote me and address me by name. Thank you.
