    The information and tips were awesome and very helpful. The filming is not so good, but it’s definitely worth the watch.

      Hi Mona, thanks for the feedback. Typically we would ask what exactly you thought was “not so good” about the production seeing as how we are known for our high quality, but this was shot a few years ago so our setup and quality has changed quite a bit since then.

  19. Liz Hampton

    Loved this webinar! Very informative and the lighting/camera work was excellent! I will definitely stay tuned for upcoming classes!

  20. Kathy Awalt

    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.

  21. Jan Reagan

    Excellent!! Communication and content was excellent!! Looking forward to watching again!!
