    The webinar was good and I picked up some tips to further improve my skills. However, I live in a rural community and pet owners want short or puppy cut, whatever length that may be. In this area they do not want cuts that require work on their part. I dare to dream of a groom where I could color a tail or even use a flat iron. Keep inspiring and stirring us to grow in our skills.
