Memory Gnomes

What is a Memory Gnome?

In the world of Savvy Groomer it is that thing you are trying to remember, trying to place, trying to get done... but for some reason you just can't seem to get your fingers on it.  Some people may call it a "blonde moment", even if you're not blonde.  If you're a dog lover you've seen a Labrador or Pug do this, if you're a cat lover you've seen a Persian do this.  I do this almost every morning, I put my keys on the key rack, right?  My son can't find his shoes, even though we have a shoe organizer... It MUST be little gnomes who came into my house last night and moved everything, there is no way I misplaced all this stuff, every day, all the time... right?

Professional Groomers

Who groom to pay their rent/mortgage, groceries, transportation costs, their grooming profession is their career.  This can be their twilight career or career in their 20s, but the most important thing is this is how they pay the bills.

Hobby Groomers

Who groom as well, a hobby.  They can be skilled in one breed/specialty, in everything or just like to wash their show Persians for fun!  The most important thing is that they are interested in pursing grooming as a hobby; remember hobbies cost you money, so they may get paid but most of the time they break even.  

If you'd like to read more about the differences you can read a What and Why blog post.
