If you've ever found yourself 🗣️ explaining the different coat lengths to your clients or 🧐 trying to understand what they meant by “short but not too short,” you're not alone. In the world of pet grooming, words like "short," "medium," and "long" often take on new dimensions and complexities – It's not just about getting the perfect look, but finding the balance between pet parents’ expectations and each pet's distinctive lifestyle.
That's where Jules, the owner of Cloud Grooming, comes in. Being in the grooming business for over a decade, she had experienced countless moments where clients would struggle to articulate their desired style. Understanding the challenge when communicating the perfect coat length that aligns with everyone’s expectations, Jules created the Cloud Grooming Guide – a comprehensive visual guide for both grooming professionals and pet parents. This book serves as a go-to reference for choosing a length that is aesthetically lifestyle-compatible and making informed decisions that will keep our furry companions healthy and happy.
Jules, the owner of Cloud Grooming in Seattle, WA, brings over 10 years of professional pet styling experience. From competitive grooming to learning Asian Style techniques, the latest chapter of Jules' journey has been the co-creation of the Cloud Grooming Guide with her wife Laur.
