PetQuest – June 12-15, 2014 Wilmington, Ohio

By Staff

With Exciting Educational Seminars and A Big Industry Trade Show, PetQuest is the perfect way to kick off your summer!

PetQuest, the show that brought the very first Asian Styling Grooming seminar to America is at it again this year with an exciting seminar line-up that includes classes like, “Don’t Make my Poodle Look Like a Poodle!”.

The show, taking place June 12-15 in Wilmington Ohio will feature a Rescue Roundup competition, an all-star line-up of speakers, a wide variety of vendors (including several offering  “cash & carry”), Groom Team sanctioned contest, a creative grooming competition, and unlimited opportunities to socialize and recharge with your peers.

Since its debut at Groom & Kennel Expo in February, the IPG Salon Certification Course has been very popular. This important program will be presented on Thursday from noon to 4pm. In addition to the great education provided in the class, it is the perfect opportunity for salon owners to demonstrate to their community that you take your education seriously. Based on recent news stories and proposed legislation that is becoming increasingly important.

Other seminar highlights include Lisa Leady doing her popular Passionate Groomer seminar, Groom Team USA superstar Lindsey Dicken grooming a bichon, Angela Kumpe on creative styling, Groomer Has It judge and Dogs 101 host Joey Villani on business and Groomer Has It season 1 runner up Jonathan David conducting a poodle scissoring seminar. And, of course, when Jay Scruggs is not hosting GroomerTV, he will be conducting a few seminars.

Besides the Asian Freestyle demo, other anticipated topics include brusher bather, pet health, business, marketing, customer and employee relations and much more. For those choosing not to take classes, there are always free demos taking place in vendor booths.

Friday and Saturday will feature four Groom Team sanctioned classes. Everyone from first timers to Groom Team USA gold member winners will share the stage – in different divisions, of course. With more room to spread out than most shows and a laid back feel, PetQuest offers groomers an ideal opportunity to take the plunge and jump in the ring for the first time.

PetQuest takes place at the dog friendly Holiday Inn Roberts Center in Wilmington, Ohio.
