Grooming your dog is pretty simple. Simply gather all the materials you need, then brush out the excess or matted hair, clean the ears, wash/dry Fido then clip his nails. The 'after grooming' stage is will probably be your pooch's favorite - so don't forget to praise and pet him or her!
Although grooming your own dog may take a bit more time than just leaving him at the groomer's, doing it yourself is a great way to save money and for the two of you to connect more deeply. What could be better than that!
Using an outline like this will help you organize your ideas and the flow of your demonstration. In turn, knowing that you are organized will relax you, giving you the confidence you need to deliver a good presentation and actually enjoy doing it.
