Vision Board Tutorial

How to make and use a vision board to get the best out of your show dog!

Having the EXACT version of the ideal look for our dog is KEY to getting the look we want when grooming and handling our show dogs.

For many years I have used the "vision board" to accomplish this. I simply have photos of dogs related to my dog on a board where I groom. I try to make my dog look as close to this ideal as possible. I also like to use photos of y own dog that are marked where I need to make improvements. This is constantly reminding me where I need to grow hair and where I need to adjust my trimming.

In this short tutorial I show you how I make and maintain my vision boards.
