The All American Grooming Show will return to The Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL, from August 15–18, 2013. Following the show’s 40th annual event in 2012, founder Jerry Schinberg sold the show to Barkleigh Productions.
The daily routine in the grooming salon should include more than merely accepting as many dogs as possible, grooming them, and giving them back to their owners in stylish, fluffy cuts. Every groomer and support staff member must be well informed as to their roles in ensuring every pet is safe from disease.
On some shears, there is supposed to be a noticeable space between the blades. This is called the “set.” On beveled edge shears, it enables the shear to “slice” the hair. Without this space, the hair may fold. As you open and close a beveled edge shear, you can look down through this space and see the blades touch in only one place along the blade. This gives the beveled edge shear that powerful slicing ability that most groomers want.
