correspondence courses developed for the pet grooming industry.
It represents the culmination over 30 years of real-world
experience from master stylist Melissa Verplank and her team of
exceptional pet groomers and trainers. The foundation of the
Paragon Distance Learning Programs is the award winning books,
Notes From the Grooming Table and Theory of Five, written by
Melissa Verplank. With almost 500 pages of information and
diagrams, these manuals are organized in an easy-to-understand
format covering all aspects of professional pet grooming in
detail. Notes From the Grooming Table has become the "Bible" of
the pet grooming industry. That’s why successful pet groomers
and stylists use Notes From the Grooming Table combined with its
sister book, Theory of Five to establish successful grooming
techniques in the shortest time possible.
The Distance Learning Career Program: is
designed to fit the needs of highly motivated and confident
individuals who have access to practice pets outside of the
Paragon training center. Focus is on assisting students to
become comfortable with pets, equipment and techniques necessary
to become competent in a professional grooming setting. Students
gather valuable, self-mentoring information that will allow them
to achieve their professional goals with time and practice.
Students concentrate on basic pet grooming of dogs including
brushing, combing, clipping nails, cleaning ears, bathing,
drying techniques, clipper and scissor finishing techniques as
well as proper pattern setting for various breeds. Emphasis is
placed on perfecting grooming skills while concentrating on
proper breed profile, increasing speed, efficiency and
developing maximum grooming potential. It is a comprehensive
instructional package created to help you start a career as a
professional pet groomer. The training focuses on a total of six
text books to give you a systematic education on pet handling,
official AKC breed standard information, canine terminology and
pet grooming techniques. Complementing the text books is the
Paragon Pet Styling DVD Series. Ms. Verplank and the Paragon
Training Team of Certified Master Groomers and contest winning
stylists will clearly show you how to execute the techniques
outlined in Notes From the Grooming Table using a wide variety
of pets in this DVD set. Included with your programs are the
Paragon Workbooks that will guide you step-by step through each
level of training. This 3 part course can be completed in as
little as 6 weeks or you can study at your own pace for up to 18
months for the three part course. The Paragon Pet Grooming
Workbook will systematically guide you through the entire
program at the pace you choose for yourself. Upon successful
