About the Author
PEARL STONE is the author of the best-seller, Clipping and Grooming Your Poodle. Mrs. Stone has been involved with dog grooming for over 25 years, first as a salon owner and currently as the Dean of the International School of Animal Arts. Her students have come to her from all over the United States and indeed from all over the world. Mrs. Stone brings her wealth of practical and theoretical experience to this book. In March 1979, Mr. and Mrs. Stone were awarded a special plaque by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) which reads as follows: For their initiative and support in the design and development of a grooming center for adoptable animals at the ASPCA's Manhattan Animal Shelter. Another first for the authors and the International School of Animal Arts was the collaboration obtained from the world-famous Animal Medical Center of New York in establishing an internship for students of the school taking the Veterinary Office Assistant Course. The International School of Animal Arts, owned and operated by Ben and Pearl Stone, is probably the only school of its kind in the world, embracing in its curriculum such courses as Dog Grooming, Cat Grooming, Obedience Training, Kennel Management, Shop Management and Veterinary Office Assistant. The school is licensed by the State Education Department of New York and accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the National Association of Trade and Technical Schools (NATTS).

This book is awful. Unless you own a poodle or groom just poodles dont buy this book. Yes it may list a lot of breeds but thats about where it starts and stops. If you are a DIY er this book is not for you. Maybe the handdrawn pictures of the dogs are good but, only to look at not for guidance. The photos look like something from the 50's. B & N should pull this one from the shelf.
I have been grooming for about 5 years now and look back in books occasionally with hard to groom breeds. This book was a total waste of money. I groom mainly by looking at pictures and this book has very little. Too much reading not enough pictures in my oppinion. More for show dogs.
If you want to groom your dog, look at other books. This was very disappointing, it has very limited breeds, along with limited information on actual grooming.. NOT WORTH THE MONEY
