Introduction to Rabbit Grooming

There are more than 6 million pet rabbits in the US according to the AVMA. There are a handful of groomers educated in rabbit grooming. The demand is increasing as rabbits become more popular. The industry must respond to the need and Anjie can educate groomers on how to include this new revenue stream into their businesses. Rabbits require regular grooming maintenance just like a dog or cat, but few groomers have the education to offer them services. This class can change that by showing you how to provide basic services for rabbits. Let Anjie show you proper handling, tips, and tricks, do’s and don’ts, and body language, all of which differ vastly from dogs and cats.
