Licensed Bather of Achievement Certificate


What is the Licensed Bather of Achievement Program about?

Did you know that the talent of a Bather, begins the success of grooming animals. Bathing is the first and most important job of a great style. Without the success of a clean and well dried animal, the stylist can’t perform her magic to create the look to satisfy the client.

The bathing room is where it all starts and before future stylists begin to think of clipping and scissoring, they must first know what to expect from the hair, and how to treat it properly to obtain the goal of a well prepared animal.

From getting the animal ready for the tub, to finding the right water temperture,  addressing behavior, trimming nails to understand the importance of perfect blow dry is what you will learn during the 35 hour Licensed Bather Program.
