“I am so grateful that I was able to study
under Teri at the Academy of Animal Arts. She is a master at
grooming, and so amazingly good with animals of all temperaments
and sizes. Her standards are high, the school is kept immaculately
clean, and even today, years later, I hear her words in my head
while working on a dog... the little details that take a groom
from good to excellent. Learning show grooming, anatomy and general
best practices will always be beneficial. I went on to teach prep
work for a while at the school, and enjoyed that, as well.”
