At this workshop our Irish Terriers are required to be on their leads, on the grooming table or in their crates for safety reasons. The lovely garden contains plenty of space for us to exercise our dogs on their leashes, visit and enjoy our terriers.

The instructors will focus on pet grooming and will try to answer your grooming questions and help you learn more about grooming your Irish Terrier. We hope to have one grooming instructor available to work with two club members and their Irish during to provide as much individual attention as possible. This year’s workshop follows last year’s CITC Grooming Seminar conducted by AKC Judge Mr. Todd Clyde. This year will be a hands-on grooming workshop with no seminar.
