Rina Meets Grooming Celebrity

June 13th, 2010 by Rina

When attending the 2008 All American Grooming Show in Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet and visit with ‘GROOMER HAS IT’ runner up, Jonathan. He was an absolute gentleman, opening the door for me, and taking the time to answer questions I had about the show. He was very encouraging about me trying out for the second season, but the jury is still out on that one. It was very nice to get to know him over the weekend and to find out he is far more a good person and groomer than he was portrayed to be on the show. Seems with editing, they can paint you in any light they choose.

Thanks Jonathan for being such a great guy and not letting your fame go to your head!

After attending my latest grooming convention in NYC, I found a company that provides essential oils and an ultrasonic aromatherapy nebulizer. I was quite intrigued by the fragrances offered and their benefits to dog, as well as groomer! I loved the idea of the calming effect and health benefits and I purchased oils to aid in both. Aroma therapy fragrances will be dispensed throughout your pets visit in the kenneling area. Our plan is to add this service to the daycare area in the coming months.

In nature, essential oils are messengers. They attract insects to pollinate the plant, repel potential attackers and even give out distress signals to warn other plants of impending attack and so when used therapeutically for humans and animals, essential oils are thought to behave in much the same way and act as messengers which encourage the body to switch on or off certain responses, e.g. switch on an calming response or switch off an stress or allergic response.

Please let us know what you think of this new service! We always value your opinion!
