I have gone for the past few years to Ft. Mitchells groom show Pet Quest. I so much enjoy going. I pick up new ideas and lots of tools from the trade show. I did enter in the groom competition for the first time this year. What a great experience. No I did not win...but that was ok because I feel I did come away in some ways a winner. I entered the 2nd class. Some people have asked Why the second class? Well its like this I wanted the challenge adventure of going up against some of the best , and also the 1st class was on friday. I didn't want to feel rushed. LOL! :rofl: I plan to go to the NASH Academy Groom Competition. We'll see what happens from there. Wish me luck!
