The PWDCNC Presents Portuguese Water Dog Grooming Seminar & Demonstration Space is Limited - Sign-up Today! When: Sunday April 7, 2019 - 9am-1pm Where: Happiness Country Kennels 5815 Mission Rd. Sunol, CA 94586 Fees: $35/person (+$15 for spouse or junior) 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. Each entrant will receive a workbook complete with diagrams on grooming your PWD and equipment information. 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 grooming appointments so you can see their eyes! Maybe you already know how to groom your dog and just need a refresher. Bring your own lunch. If there is time Denise will do head touch-ups on dogs in the audience. ********************** The Workshop will be given by Denise Gilbert, a PWDCNC member.
