Train to groom is a training package that is catered to grooming, it is a little different for each dog because each dog is so unique in their needs, for example, if your dog is more nervous of the dryer then the clippers we will spend more time building a positive association to the dryer. Our goal is to help Fido learn that grooming doesn't need to be scary and to help them get used to a regular schedule. When your dog is with us we will pair treats with grooming tools and the process of grooming to build a good association to grooming as a whole.
Your dog will come to Brilliant Best Friends ONE day a week for five weeks straight, coming in the morning and leaving in the late afternoon. On the fifth week your dog will be fully groomed (Bath & Tidy or Shave) which is included in the price of this package. Every groom for the rest of your dog's life, you will receive 10% off the regular grooming price.
During those days we will introduce your puppy to many different grooming tools that might normally frighten a puppy while pairing them with super high-value treats and building positive associations so that future grooms for your puppy won't seem so scary.
It is a little bit different for adult dogs who don't enjoy grooming. We will first build a positive association with us and being here at BBF so the first day is just a fun hangout day while they learn that being here equals good things. The next 4 days while they are with us we will work on what they really don't enjoy (having nails done, being blow dried) and pair it will super yummy treats. We will be going at your dog's pace and listen to them when they are saying its too much.

During the duration of this training it is very important that you do not practice any grooming or parts of grooming with your dog. We have a very precise schedule with importance on the way each grooming situation is set up to give your dog the most success.
If you decide to take your dog to another groomer or try a "home haircut" the 10% off discount is voided. This program is to build a good association to grooming and if you are using another groomer or trying to cut hair at home we cannot guarantee that the same low stress methods are being used.
