Grooming equipment manufacturer Aesculap has announced the eight candidates for its scholarship scheme.
The shortlisted candidates are Anita Dolby, Sharon Evans, Joanna Hart, Tiffany Jennings, Karen Lofthouse, Leandro Peres, Amanda Stiles and Verity Watts.
The scheme has been well received within the industry and Aesculap sales manager for Clippers Erich Jedersberger said it affords the winners “a fantastic package thanks to the support of Groom Team England and many of our UK dealers”.
“Choosing a shortlist has been a difficult task as the standard of applicants has been high. It shows how passionate people are in the UK about dog grooming and how much they care about doing the best for their customers. It is going to be a hard task to reduce this list down to just five winners.”
The winners will be announced at the end of January and the prizes will be given out at Crufts. The Aesculap scholarship scheme is supported by: Animology, Christies Direct, English Groomers Group, Groomers Ltd, Mutneys, ProGroomer, Redcape and Simpsons.
