Instructor, Corryne Smith has been grooming dogs for over 10 years. Her experience ranges from working at big corporate salons to small salons to boarding and training facilities.
Her love of animals has been life-long and stems from her childhood; she grew with up with Great Pyrenees that her family bred.She has always had a passion for working with dogs and has worked in the animal care industry for much of her life. Her first job was at 14 working on a farm. She also grew up a 4-H member showing pigs, horses, cattle and chickens. Corryne also works closely with different rescue organizations and currently has seven rescued dogs of her own which include a Dachshund, Rottweiler, Terrier mix, Shih-tzu and 3 Chihuahuas in addition to 2 cats.
She strives to make the grooming experience as stress-free as possible. She believes it is a must to have a great deal of patience and trust, as well as the ability to read dogs' body language. She has had a great amount of success in grooming pets without using any form of sedation. Clients have told her that she has a special knack for working with dogs that other groomers turn away.
She takes great pride in her work and is very much a Quality over Quantity type of groomer. She keeps up to date on the latest grooming trends, equipment, and products by attending trade shows and seminars. A big part of being a professional groomer is knowing what products can help get the look and feel that clients want. Corryne is a believer that there is always something new to learn in the grooming industry and strives to learn new ways to keep your dogs happy and healthy.
With Corryne's experience and knowledge, she will be able to prepare any student wanting to become a professional dog groomer.
Instructor Erin Myers resides in Bloomington, Indiana, with her husband and daughter. She operates a highly successful show kennel and breeds Vizslas & Alaskan Malamutes.
She has been actively showing and grooming for over 20 years and specializes in "AKC standard" grooming, including scissoring and hand-stripping.
As a pet groomer, she built a grooming department from the ground up for busy veterinary clinic in Hawaii. This business still thrives today, and serves hundreds of clients a year. I believe the understanding of canine structure, behavior and breed specific characteristics yields excellent haircuts and aids in communicating with clients. And above all, a good experience for a pet is paramount to operating a business in the pet industry.
With Erin’s experience and knowledge, she will be able to prepare any student wanting to become a professional dog groomer.
