(PRESS RELEASE) Barkleigh Production announced the debut of educational material produced by Groom Curriculum. A set of three books: The Pet Stylist Playbook, The Pet Stylist Resource Guide, and Choose Your Star – Learn! Positive Growth Mindset Journal and poster set complement each other and provide foundational skills for beginning or busy groomers.

Groom Curriculum, founded by Sierra Elbert and her team, Patricia A. Pierce and Shelby Mitchell, is a pet care company specializing in dog grooming education and training.

The Pet Stylist Playbook by Elbert helps beginning groomers understand the eight common pet-style cuts. This guide can also serve as a training tool in every salon worldwide, catering to experienced and new groomers.

The Pet Stylist Resource Guide by Elbert, paired with a notepad of the observation and reflection forms, enhances learning by providing standardized terminology and structure to facilitate students’ understanding. It emphasizes the crucial role of completing the observations and reflection form for every dog groomed, a practice essential for every grooming session, regardless of your experience level.

Choose Your Star – Learn! Positive Growth Mindset Journal by Patricia A. Pierce, a tool for personal growth, is inspired by the instruction of durable skills and Carol Dweck’s Positive Growth Mindset theory.
