Hi, I'm Stephanie Zikmann.
I created The Holistic Grooming Academy for people just like you...
During my training days I quickly realised that the professional grooming curriculum lacked a great deal when considering the emotional needs of dogs and cats, and how to accommodate to their needs within the context of grooming.
It seemed obvious to me that the majority of animals in the salon were unhappy and distressed with the demands our roles bestowed upon them, and it made me curious to dig deeper to find out why that was.
I spent the next three years studying canine behaviour and psychology before obtaining my official qualification as a canine behaviourist, which then spurred me on to develop a course that would focus more on grooming from the animal's perspective.
Fast forward to today and I have helped well over 100 students lower stress in their salons while building their confidence and competence in handling "difficult" dogs and cats.
Helping over 100 students achieve more success with less stress!
We have students from all across the globe, and here are just some of their experiences with us.
