International Certified Master Groomer

Shjannon has gone through the lengthy educational process of being certified as an International Master Groomer (ICMG) through the International Professional Groomers Association (IPG). There are no licensing requirements for groomers in most jurisdictions in North America, and this is a voluntary certification process that can happen after a person is already proficient as a dog groomer. It involves 3 levels (CG, APG, and the highest, ICMG) which encompass a total of 8 written exams, and 8 hands-on practical exams, as well as an evaluation of the working area of the groomer. It is designed to test a groomers knowledge of safety, anatomy and structure, correct/thoughtful dog handling skills, as well as an in-depth knowledge of the different canine breeds, coat types, and the techniques used to properly care for them, including hand stripping/carding on terriers and sporting breeds, and excellent hand scissoring skills.

Shjannon is very proud of her multiple 100% written and practical test scores, and multiple certifier comments regarding her careful and considerate dog handling.
