Rising Star's Dedication To Learning Kickstarts Exciting Grooming Career
Meet Rising Star and Groom Tech Grad Annabelle Cayer of Wag N’ Wash in Scarborough, ME! Annabelle is an extremely hard worker, and we’re so impressed with the quality of her grooming and her dedication to the craft. We’re so excited to see what she does next!
Her mentor, Suesan Watson, shared some kind words too, saying, “Annabelle was off to a slow start waiting for an ear pluck submission, but once she got that in, she made every effort to catch up and complete on time and did just that! She worked hard and wanted to learn from every critique that was given. I have no doubt that this journey will lead her to where she wants to be. What I thought was so sweet was when I nominated her and sent her letter, she said she knew just what picture she would use, and the dog’s name was Annabelle, too! Great Job!”
Why did you choose dog grooming as a career?
I chose grooming as a career because I love dogs and I loved visiting with them. I wanted to get into a career that allows me to be with those beautiful creatures and allows me to lift them up into the best possible state they can be in. I also get to create a community with the pet parents and form a lasting connection.
What did you enjoy most during your coursework?
I enjoyed meeting new dogs and clients and building my base and working up the ladder. I enjoyed becoming someone who was recognized and acknowledged for my talent and my hard work.
Where can we see your work?
You can see my work on Facebook and Instagram. Wag N’ Wash Scarborough’s social medias and SoPo Groomer’s social media.
What are your future goals?
My future goals are to become a Master Groomer, then after that teach others about what I know.
Any advice for aspiring groomers?
Trust yourself and have faith in the people who are ahead of you. They have a lot of insight and guidance to give that will help you succeed. They will set you up to be the best possible groomer you can be.
