Unfortuntely DGAWA have had to postpone this event due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will update you with a new date once the travel and group gathering restrictions have been lifted.

DGAWA are super excited to be bringing Bethany Aberdour and Naomi Conroy to our fair shores to present their sellout seminar Every Day Pet Styling 101..

Everyday Pet Styling 101

This seminar offers a unique collaboration of decades worth of passion, married with a new approach to teaching pet styling. We believe in core topics to base advanced styling on, and in growing these cores to upskill.

Our Everyday Pet Styling 101 seminar is both flexible and consistent, and our curriculum covers the beginning to the intermediate level of styling, taking care to share advanced tips and tricks aimed at the group we’re teaching.

This seminar is especially aimed towards stylists who have been self-taught, without a mentorship, and who need to refresh their core skills to reignite their passion and skills in the industry.
