I am a long time dog groomer; I had some cat experience when I left for NCGIA in 2014. I was also a new grooming business owner at that time. I signed up to improve my cat grooming skills and increase my cat clientele. I attended NCGIA, and I left with so much more! NCGIA helped enable me to be more confident as a professional groomer and business owner, to say the least. The knowledge and skills I learned grew my cat business. I have over 250 cat clients, most on regular schedules, and business is good! I cannot speak highly enough about the instruction I received and the techniques I learned. Becoming a CFMG opened up a new world for me. I became a cat grooming professional. I know my cat breeds, how to re-book a client, charge what I am worth, safely handle any cat that comes my way, and so much more! NCGIA has breathed new life into this groomer’s career.

I have been grooming cats for three years, have attended Danelle’s workshops, and purchased most of the curriculum. When I analyzed why my cat grooming was growing slowly, I realized that I had not put the serious time into it that I did into my dog grooming. In the three weeks since I joined boot camp and actually started studying the curriculum instead of treating it as a problem-solving reference, I have been amazed at the additional handling tips I have found and the confidence I have gained from being on the path to mastery. Thanks are due to Danelle as she was so helpful with her last-minute pre-holiday shipment of brochures which my local vet will now be distributing. I had the opportunity to do this before but just needed the boost in confidence to “make the sale."
