One of our friends started a pet product ambassador/testing club. It’s actually pretty cool—they send you products to test for free, and you get to keep them—just for giving your feedback! What’s the catch? You have to love dogs, and you have to be an honest person 🙂 A lot of the products are worth $25 or more, and current participants are really enjoying it!
If you’re interested, they’re running the group in Facebook Messenger—here’s the sign-up:
Kathy Santo's Pet-A-Groom
Did you know? We have our own FULL SERVICE grooming shop right next door to our dog training school!
The trainers at the dog school regularly accompany our student’s dogs to the shop to help them relax during their grooming experience.
We also take our FastTrack dogs there when requested, and do training sessions to teach them to how to calmly stand on the table, have their nails done, and allow their body to be handled, even when there’s lots of sounds going on from the clippers and dryers! We like to say that our student’s dogs learn to be the best grooming clients!
