October 11th & 12th, 2014 Grooming Competition & Seminar, at RoadStone, on the Naas Rd.

We are on the countdown to the big one, our Annual Irish Groomer of the Year competition on October 11th and 12th. It’s hard to believe but this is the 18th year of this event and this year we are delighted to welcome our judges, Mia Overnas and Sue Eld Weaver both hugely talented groomers and we are so lucky to have them as judges. I know I say this every year but it’s true, that while it is scary to stand up there and compete, you will learn more from that experience then you’d believe.
