How did you get started grooming?

I know that a lot of groomers are on here so I was wondering how you got a big business going. Did you just keep practicing and practicing and then finally got really good or did you read books and take online classes? I am trying to learn more and more so one day I can be something big in the dog grooming business.

I wanted to learn to groom, so I got a job as a bather at a grooming salon.

They told me I would have to do bathing and brushing for a year before I would start learning to do haircuts.

Well, I got lucky, and one of the groomers quit after I had been there 9 months, so they started teaching me to clip early.

That was 21 years ago, and I've been grooming ever since....:)
