Jersey County 4-H Dog Grooming Workshop - Howling Success!
April 14, 2017
Recently Jersey County 4-H offered its first ever hands-on dog-grooming workshop. The program proved popular with over 20 youth and parents attending. Participants learned basic techniques of dog grooming. Libby Darr and Kayla DeUel of Jersey Calhoun Veterinary Hospital presented the program. The question and answer session allowed the kids to ask question about their puppies, some of which were new and some who have been family pets for some time.
Libby brought her Miniature Border Collie, Neo, to demonstrate how to brush the coat, and what tools work best for different breeds of dogs. Kayla demonstrated on her dog, Daisy, teeth brushing and nail trimming techniques. Each participant took home a grooming brush and toy for their favorite puppy.
