Theory of 5 - Basic Pet Grooming Concepts - by Melissa Verplank
This book reduces complex methods and techniques to easy-to-understand terms. According to Ms. Verplank grooming can be broken down into 5 basic jobs: body, head, ear, feet, and tail. Within each of these there are again 5 basic styles. Once these are understood and mastered a groomer will have the skills needed to create neat, well-balanced trims on any pet or breed. These techniques have been tested by Ms. Verplank and her team for over 20 years.
