All American Grooming Show

August 18 – 21, 2016 // Located in Wheeling, IL
The All American Grooming Show is probably the most unique grooming show in the country. And that makes perfect sense, when you consider that it was founded by one of the industry’s most unique and passionate legends. Jerry Schinberg always wanted the best for the groomers, but he also wanted it done with flair.

Northwest Grooming Show

Since its first year, the Northwest Grooming Show had been one of the fastest growing shows in the grooming industry. But, last year’s turnout was surprising to even the most optimistic of people. For the first time in Barkleigh show history, pre-registration seminar packages were sold out. Fortunately, a reconfiguration of the seating at the show made it possible for everyone to attend seminars.

Barkleigh Invitational

This past December, Barkleigh premiered the Groom Florida Show at the AKC/Eukanuba National Dog Show. The show consisted of a creative grooming contest, educational seminars by top industry speakers and the first ever, Barkleigh Invitational Grooming Contest, sponsored by Wahl, Crown Royale, LTD, Chris Christensen, Pet Plan, Espree, Pet Paint and Groomer to Groomer Magazine.

Groom Expo

Feel the Spirit
Many professions require yearly continuing education for their members. The grooming industry does not. Yet, thousands of groomers from all over the world voluntarily attend grooming shows. Nearly 5,000 of them recently attended Groom Expo, the largest grooming show in the world. It was held in September at the magnificent Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
