Session 1:  $25 per person
Session 2:  $15 per dog for Working Slot (up to 2 people)
Session 2:  $10 per person for Auditing Slot

SESSION 1: Demo & Discussion – The seminar will include a demonstration of a retriever cut (not a show cut) on a Portuguese Water Dog and a discussion covering: equipment, bathing/ brushing/ drying tips, clipping your dog’s nails, preventing and removing mats, the basics of what you want your dog to look like and common mistakes made in grooming a PWD.

This session is helpful both to those that want to groom their dogs and those that take their dogs to a groomer. Perhaps you want to educate your groomer as to what a Portuguese Water Dog should look like. Perhaps you want to learn to trim your dog between groomings so you can see their eyes! Maybe you already know how to groom your dog and just need a refresher.

SESSION 2: Groom Your Own Dog! –You will be able to groom your own dog with help and supervision. Working and Audit slots are limited so register early!! When given this session usually fills quickly!! You MUST attend Session 1 unless you have previously attended one of Denise’s Seminars. A limited number of grooming tables and equipment will be available to participants who do not have their own equipment.


The Workshop will be given by Denise Gilbert, a PWDCNC member. Denise has been grooming Portuguese Water Dogs in her spare time for more than 10 years.
