Do you own a pet care facility? Are you involved in grooming, boarding, training, breeding, exhibiting, handling, brushing, bathing, walking, helping, or understanding pets? Do you retail pet products to the pet-owning public? Do you need to improve your grooming or handling skills? Or learn how to retail or add retail to your mix of services? Then this is your place.
