Yorkie poodle mix puppy

Here is Chewbacca AKA Chewie. He is a 4 1/2 month Yorkshire Terrie Poodle mix. This was his very first time at the grooming parlor. I gave him a bath with Hypo-Allergenic Puppy & Kitten Shampoo. It's Cleans the dirtiest pets while remaining mild enough for use on puppies. After the bath, I use a 4 F blade to remove half the length of the hair and scissored his legs, belly and shaped his face. He is such a good boy!

The scoop About most Pet Foods.

Although you may think all pet food manufacturers have your pet’s best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Current pet food regulations allow manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly give to your pet. In fact, you may be shocked to learn what some brands of pet food really contain. For example: the use of by-products (feet, bones and intestines, etc.), chemical preservatives (BHA and BHT) and grains that are often difficult to digest (corn, wheat, gluten and soy), which are often used as a protein source instead of meat.

A Special Program For Groomers

Groomers Have A Special Mission
Being a Groomer is a special mission. You are the master of shaping, clipping, cleaning, are beautifying our pets. And whether you realize it or not, you play a vital role in their health. You may be the first to detect ear problems, skin allergies, or even tumors. Groomers certainly play a vital role in properly caring for our pets. But with the rewards also come challenges.

Business Challenges
Some of these challenges are financial - not enough clients, not enough time in the day, costly overhead, etc. Let's face it, this is a business, and you can't do what you love to do without meeting the bottom line - money!
We know that you work hard to build a client base and create loyal customers. You provide top notch service to keep them coming back again and again and you can proudly say, "That is MY customer". Our program creates a way for you to keep more of your business instead of losing it to your competitor.

How? Through the one single area that all of your pet clients have in common - they all eat. In fact, 98% of all pets eat commercial pet foods that are bought from the local pet store, and that is draining money away from your business. Did you know that the average pet owner spends about $300 per year on pet food and treats? Those are YOUR customers. But until now, there was not much you could do to prevent this from happening.

Some of the challenges are physical - sore feet, bad back, weak knees, and even finding good help.

The most obvious challenge, however, is the lack of recurring income. What will happen to your income the day you stop grooming?

A Special Program For Groomers
Introducing the 'Perfect Income Ad On' for Groomers! With no inventory and no extra work on your part, you can now refer your clients to the nations top Natural pet food, treats, supplements, and skin care products and be compensated for life. That's right. Keep the money that you deserve. Through our unique selling system, we are revolutionizing Grooming businesses all across the country.

Here's How It Works

•Recommend Life's Abundance pet products to your clients - requires no inventory
•Your client places their order via your provided website or by our toll free order line
•The products are delivered fresh to your clients door on autoshipment
•You are paid for life

I love this and I know you will also. Check out more info HERE

Dog Bathing Tips

If you like to give your pet a bath instead of sending them off to the groomer, you're not alone. Lot's of pet owners say that it's a great bonding experience, not to mention, it saves them money. Bathing your pet even gives you the chance to check for any physical problems while giving them that 'super soaker'. But are you doing things correctly? Would you like a few pointers? Ok then, test your bathing skills using these tips to see if there is anything you need to do differently. BATHING TIPS

  • 1. Never wash your dog outside if the weather is cold. This is particularly true for puppies as they have trouble regulating their body temperatures. Be sure your new puppy is at least four weeks old before they receive their first bath.

  • 2. Before starting an indoor bath, make sure the house is warm. Turn up the thermostat a few degrees. Have everything ready ahead of time - shampoo, towels, (maybe a change of clothes for you), and even treats for a reward.

  • 3. Start combing and brushing out all mats. Otherwise, the water will turn the mats into solid masses, which will require clippers to remove. If your dog's hair is matted with paint, tar or some other sticky material, trim with clippers or soak the area with vegetable or mineral oil for 24 hours.

  • 4. Prep your dog. Put a drop of mineral oil in the eyes to protect them from suds. Some people use cotton balls in the ears. If you use cotton balls, make sure they're the right size for your dog's ears; if they're too small, they may slip down the ear canal. Also check the ears for any redness or other abnormalities.

  • 5. Bathe your dog as quickly as possible. Be thorough and do a good cleaning, but whether you're using the tub or the shower get him in and out as soon as possible. Dry your dog immediately and as quickly as possible. Use a lots of big soft towels, or a hair dryer set to a low setting. NEVER allow a wet dog to go outdoors in the winter.

Finally, it does matter what kind of shampoo you use. Never use a human shampoo as it is not PH balanced for your pet. Instead, consider using a pet shampoo that is all natural, and soothing to the skin like Dr. Jane's Revitalizing Shampoo. You can learn more about Dr. Jane's shampoo by clicking here: For Dogs For Cats

Cost of any pet food by using our Kcal Calculator

Calculator Instructions 1. Grab your brand of food 2. Enter the price of the food Click Update 3. Enter weight (lbs) of your food Click Update 4. Locate the Kcal/kg and Kcal/cup and enter into calculator Click Update 5. Enter your pets weight Click Update 6. Enter recommended cups (feeding amount) Click Update All amounts are set to 1 and will need to be changed for accurate results. Calculator Explained We have discovered an amazingly accurate way to calculate the cost of any pet food by using the KCal calculation method. For example, if you know a kibble contains 1,683 kcal per pound and 365 kcal per cup, you can easily deduct that a 40 pound bag of kibble contains 40 x 1,683 kcal = 67,320 kcal. If you divide that by the amount of kcal per cup, you get the amount of cups in a bag: 67,320 kcal/365 = 184.4. Once you have these numbers, you can then get an accurate feeding cost per day and per month using each brand's feeding chart and cost per bag. Click Here to go to Calculator under the TOOLS tab... Remember to use to order your pet food.

Who Makes Your Pet Food?

Who Makes Your Pet Food? You might be surprised to learn who is in the Pet Food Business today. The same companies that make many of your household items like toothpaste, potato chips, laundry detergent, and more, are also making the majority of pet foods in the commercial marketplace. Here is a small list for you to be aware of... •Proctor and Gamble - Iams and Eukanuba •Colgate/Palmolive - Science Diet •Del Monte - Gravy Train, Natures Recipe, Kibbles and Bits •Diamond - Kirkland, Chicken Soup, Nutra Gold •Nestle - Purina products •Mars - Royal Canin, Pedigree, Sensible Choice and more Although there is nothing particularly wrong with the fact that these large companies are now in the pet food business, the real consideration is whether or not you choose to purchase your pet's food from a company whose primary focus is NOT pet food vs. a company whose primary focus IS pet food. The question simply boils down to, who do you trust to feed your pet? I only trust Life's Abundance Pet Products found at

Pet Groomers making money

Pet Groomers making it big with Life's Abundance Are you hoping you can groom dogs for the rest of your life? I always hoped I would stay healthy to work until I retire. Wait... RETIRE - what am I saying. With gas prices, food, clothes, medicines and everything else going up up up, who can RETIRE. Well maybe you can. And here's how. The 20% Retail Bonus Bonanza! It gives us great pleasure to announce a very special promotion called the 20% Retail Bonus Bonanza. This promotion incentivizes recruiting and, therefore, encourages Field Reps in your downline to build their businesses much faster than usual. Here’s how the 20% Retail Bonus Bonanza will work … Enrollment Period: The enrollment period begins on April 1, 2011 and lasts through June 30, 2011. Eligibility Period: Field Reps are eligible to participate in this promotion the month they sign up during the enrollment period and the next three months following their sign-up. Criteria: A Field Rep must meet the following two criteria to qualify for the 20% Retail Bonus in a given month: (1) be an Executive Field Rep and (2) have at least $50.00 in Personal Sales. In an effort to help you better understand this promotion, we provided three different scenarios: Scenario #1: A recruit signs up as an Executive Field Rep on April 7th. This Field Rep is eligible for the 20% Retail Bonus for the remainder of the month of April, as well as all of May, June and July. After July 31st, the Retail Bonus reverts to the standard amount. Scenario #2: A recruit signs up as a basic Field Rep on April 7th, and then upgrades to Executive Field Rep status on June 7th. This Field Rep is eligible for the 20% Retail Bonus for the remainder of the month of June and all of July. After July 31st, the Retail Bonus reverts to the standard amount. Scenario #3: A recruit signs up as an Executive Field Rep on June 20th. This Field Rep is eligible for the 20% Retail Bonus for the remainder of the month of June, as well as all of July, August and September. After September 30th, the Retail Bonus reverts to the standard amount. Of course, it is to your advantage to work with the Reps in your organization to achieve $750.00 or more in Personal Sales, so they never have to go below the 20% Retail Bonus level. Finally, because we do not want you to wait until April to sign up new Field Reps, the recruits that you sign up in March are eligible to participate in this promotion in April, May, June and July, as long as they meet the criteria. Actually, this is the same eligibility period if you signed up a Field Rep in April. Here’s why the 20% Retail Bonus Bonanza will be a very effective recruiting program: Incentive: This special promotion can help convince a prospect who’s “on the fence” to join now. Need for Speed: The limited-time enrollment period helps you to convey to recruits a sense of urgency. Mentoring: This promotion provides you the perfect opportunity to mentor new recruits. You can explain the importance of working together to achieve the $750.00 level before the promotion ends. That way, your new Rep will be much less likely to ever revert back to lower levels of the Retail Bonus. Satisfaction: More money in new Field Reps’ pockets not only fosters a great sense of satisfaction, it also encourages them to actively continue building their businesses. Experience: Once a new Field Rep knows how to achieve the 4-Star level, he or she has internalized many of the basics of success. We believe the 20% Retail Bonus Bonanza will prove to be a highly effective recruiting and business-building tool. We encourage you to contact the Field Reps in your downline and convince them to take advantage of this very special offer!

Price per pound for dog and cat food

Price Per Pound First, let's talk about price per pound. Any decent dog food will usually start at about $1.50 to $1.75 per pound and a good quality cat food will start at about $2.oo per pound. This is not unlike the way we shop for meats, fruits, or vegetables. Anything under this price range should not be considered. It costs money to manufacture a good pet food. If you are spending less than this per pound, you are most likely buying junk. Price Per Feeding Second, let's examine price per feeding. Just because it appears that you are saving money on a "bargain brand", doesn't mean that you are. Comparing the price of one bag vs. another bag will lead you to a false conclusion. It often takes up to twice as much bargain brand food to equal one serving of a better food because of more digestibilty (not to mention better quality). So in reality, you may actually be buying double the amount of pet food and not saving any money after all. Consider the following example of cost per feeding for a 30 pound adult dog. If you were to buy a cheaper grocery store brand like Beneful dog food, the cost for a 15.5 lb bag would be about $20.00. Alternatively, the cost for a 20lb bag of Life's Abundance holistic dog food would cost about $31.00. That is an $11.00 difference per bag. However, the cost per feeding would be amazingly similar. The cost of feeding beneful dog food would be about .55 cents per day while the Lifes Abundance dog food would be about .64 cents per day. Therefore, to feed Beneful dog food for 1 month would cost $16.50, but to feed a much higher quality holistic diet would cost $19.20 for that same month. An overall difference of only $2.70! Be An Educated Shopper Finally, we all must be informed shoppers when it comes to which dog food and which cat food we are willing to buy. Many manufacturers get their ingredients from overseas to save on costs and many foods have been recalled. It simply DOES NOT PAY to buy cheap dog food or cat food. If you would like to feed your pet a human quality pet food (for about 50 cents a day) click here to contact us. We also have a home based busines opportunity for you to share our superior products and get paid!

Shetland Sheepdog grooming

This little handsome guy is Scout. He came into the grooming parlor with some very matted pants and a whole lot of fly away hair. I dematted the coat with my new "Emergency" Matzapper Brush from Les Pooches. Then bathed and dried him and scissored to neaten up his coat. Special Note: The coat of a Sheltie is easier to care for than you might think, but regular brushing is important to avoid mats from forming. You start by misting the coat lightly with water or what I like to use is the Bath Fresh Mist from Life's Abundance. Brush out the tangles before they turn into mats, if you don't the hair will become to bad and this will cause coat damage. This breed is a seasonally heavy shedder. The dense undercoat is shed twice a year: in the spring and fall. The coat readily sheds dirt and mud and Shelties really like to be clean.

Sheltie Shave down

Here is Murphy, he's a sheltie. He's hanging out with his little brother Corky.

Murphy gets this super short haircut because it's just easier for his human mom to take care of in between their 8 week grooming appointment. Murph gets a #5F on a clippervac backwards. This method is great to give a nice smooth finished look. His legs, tail and head are scissored to blend into the body.

Schnauzer Poodle Mix puppy

Check out Zoey, she is a 3-1/2 month Schnauzer poodle puppy. This was her very first time in the grooming parlor. She was really scared at first, but after a while she did get the hang of it. I used a number 1 comb and clipped all of the body and legs the same length. I used a 10 blade on her face and left the hair on top of her head longer. As she gets older, her hair will harden up so I think she can have a topknot. Only time will tell.

Revitalizing Shampoo is a conditioning formula that works itself into a luxurious foamy lather to gently deep cleanse without stripping natural oils and rinses completely, leaving a soft, delicate fragrance of natural fruit extracts. Natural antioxidants from organic rosemary and sage help prevent damage from weathering and environmental factors. Natural emollients help soften, detangle, and give the coat more body. As your pet dries, odors are cleaned away and in its place your pet will have a clean, beautiful coat fragrant with the delicate aromas of kiwi and mango. Revitalizing Shampoo neutralizes odors – does not just cover them up. Your pet will stay cleaner, longer. Between baths, use Bath Fresh Mist to keep your pet cleaner, longer. Item Size: 12 fl. oz. bottle Directions: Shake well before using. Wet coat and apply generous amount of shampoo into the palm of your hand, massage it well into the coat, being careful to avoid contact with eyes. Rinse well and towel dry. Repeat as necessary. For the ultimate pampering experience, use in combination with Bath Fresh Mist. This pet conditioner contains pure plant botanicals and natural fruit extracts. It is a great after bath conditioner. Also use between baths to gently remove odors and condition - or - use when you brush your pet – they will love the attention.
