Thank you to all who attended the 2015 Saskatchewan's Finest Grooming Seminar!  We had yet another successful year, and hope to see you again at the next show.

4th Annual Saskatchewan's Finest Grooming Seminar
May 24th and 25th, 2015

Guest speaker this year will be Barbara Prueckel!

Our focus is to learn about new tools, share ideas and techniques to improve our quality of grooming while meeting new people in our industry in a fun learning atmosphere.  Based on your feedback from previous seminars, this year will be focused on educational seminars as well as hands-on assistance.
