9-12pm Mini work shop & seminar Barbara Prueckel. While everyone will learn a huge amount from this talented lady we have 3 extra special slots for people to bring a dog washed and prepped ready for styling and receive instruction from Barbara as part of the bigger seminar. Barbara has a wealth of information and has special tips and techniques for working with Yorkshire Terriers!!
1.30-2.45pm Jim Stephens brings his expertise on Safe Handling and Animal Ethics in the Salon. Jim has a fascinating insight into all things canine and I suspect that an hour and a 15 minutes will be only the tip of the iceberg on what we could spend an entire day discussing
3-5pm Joanne Angus will be doing a demonstration for us on a Miniature Schnauzer and answering all of those daily questions you may have. Joanne has been involved in writing some great books, sharing her knowledge of industry based situations and solutions. We are hoping that she brings some with her. Joanne was involved in the inaugural seminar in the IKC Showgrounds in Dublin in 1996. That was the spark that started this Association and it is only fitting that she is involved in our 25th+1 Anniversary Event
9-11am Stuart Simons doing a demonstration. Stuart has a special interest in Creative Grooming and we could encourage his creative side to sneak out if you guys would like or we can stick with a regular groom...you get to choose...email in the ideas/preferences
