Dog Grooming Simplified: Straight to the Point

Barkleigh + Honors awarded Book of the Year!

Jodi Murphy has just authored a Grooming Book that is ground breaking! What better way to understand correct pattern placement than by the use of real photos of real dogs! Not only does Jodi use real photos but the dogs that are featured are some of the top winning show dogs in the USA including “Sky”, the Wire Fox Terrier, Best In Show winner at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 2014!

“Educating groomers has been my passion for many years. My Instructional DVD Series has helped so many people learn to groom as well as improve their techniques. Dog Grooming Simplified: Straight to the Point was written to complement my DVD series. The information contained in this text along with my DVDs is a wealth of knowledge.”

With over 190 breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club along with individual breed-specific grooming instructions, it can become very overwhelming for new groomers to retain the information. “Dog Grooming Simplified” is the solution to learning about pattern lines, which simplifies the learning process. Whether the patterns are set tight or left more natural…..the patterns are set in the same fashion. Once a groomer understands basic patterns he or she will be able to groom any breed with ease.

With proper pattern placement and techniques described in this text, the groomer will be able to present a well-balanced, well-blended pet trim to the pet owner. The content described is based on Jodi’s opinion, interpretation of the breed standard and the techniques that she has acquired and developed over the years.

With over 400 real life full color photos, taken by one of the top dog show photographers in the country, this first-of-its-kind grooming book is sure to be one of the most sought after reference manuals on the market.

Jodi has created a unique color overlay of every breed with a color chart which show recommended blade lengths, snap-on comb lengths and techniques for every breed.
