CANINE HAIR & COAT DAMAGE: A CLOSE-UP VIEW - Presented by Barbara Bird 
With BBird as your guide, participants will take a highly visual journey into the hair shaft and see how hair damage shows up, using the technology of Scanning Electron Microscopy.  We will learn the biology of hair, and clearly see how hair damage can sabotage our hard work as groomers.  Barbara identifies factors that contribute to coat damage, how to minimize that damage and how to treat it.  This fundamental knowledge is often missing in grooming education and training.  This mind-blowing presentation will alter the way you view dog hair, and may even change the way you groom!
90 minutes - $49.95

CHEMISTRY FOR GROOMERS - Presented by Barbara Bird
A two-hour version of Beyond Suds & Scent, the presentation and book that put BBird on the map as the go-to person in the pet industry for information about ingredients and their functions in pet shampoos and conditioners. These products are the foundation on which groomers work, yet we use them without the basic knowledge of how they work.  This workshop will fill that education gap.  Barbara excels in being able to deliver this technical information in a way that is understandable and entertaining.  Two Hours - $49.95

In this webinar, we will look at the types of shampoos and conditioners available to groomers, their similarities and differences, and how to choose products.  Several variables for selecting products will be discussed, selection for specific results, selection by coat type or condition, and for marketing and image.  We will also discuss major issues around product choice, including "natural" products and product safety.  This is a sponsored workshop featuring Show Season products, and will be offered at a special price. The discussion will include other products as well as those of the sponsoring company. Two hours - $19.95
