I have to say I am so so PROUD of our wonderful TEAM at the salon who enable me to show my beautiful dogs to such a high standard, without their assistance in the salon whether it be hands on or working to cover me while I compete or assisting me with bathing them and general coat maintenance… I THANK them whole heartedly for their support of the Parcheeni  Poodles ..
