Hi! Just wanted to let you know I won best groomer in Terrell! They called me today from
the Terrell Tribune weekly newspaper and said I had won and were putting it in their once a
year tribute to "Best In Business"! They send out a vote to their subscribers and I guess
my timing of my opening at the vet clinic was good. Hotdogs is doing well, and growing probably
faster than I anticipated!
"I had the pleasure of having Deb as my Professional Grooming instructor.
Her instructions were as clear and detailed in person as they are in her
videos. If I was able to absorb just a fraction of her knowledge in
grooming, I have benefited greatly. Deb's high energy and love for animals
makes for an exciting class. I urge anyone that is serious about
Professional Grooming to take classes from Deb Stover."

I can truly say that Deb Stover changed my life. After trying out another grooming school
and investigating others, I became very disillusioned about becoming a groomer, a dream I
had held for years. I was then directed come and talk to Deb about being a groomer by a
friend who knew both of us. I received a warm welcome to come anytime and visit and stay
as long as I wanted. I was hooked, I signed up as soon as I could and will tell you that I
loved every minute of instruction I received. I was sorry to have it end. I am now the proud
co-owner of a very upscale dog spa and credit the wonderful training and support I received.
Deb is phenomenal and the best in the business. Rarely does a day go by that I don't stop and
think, "yes, she did teach us that in school". We still keep in touch and feel lucky that we can
call her at any time and ask questions on a difficult dog. Any student will be lucky to learn from her.
"You will not be disappointed taking classes from Deb Stover. She has literally decades of
experience in every aspect of pet grooming. She is one of those people who has done it all
and consequently makes it all look so easy. But beyond that, she will take the time to explain
things and show you techniques until you get it. And did I mention, "never a dull moment"?
She had our whole class laughing all the time for 11 weeks. She likes to keep things light
and it made learning so much more enjoyable. Deb also has a very big heart. She finds the
time to help others along the way in life despite her full-plate of working and other activities.
Her energy seems to have no bounds. In short, Deb is good people and a great teacher. If you
want to learn grooming from the best and have fun doing it; sign up now!"

"I highly recommend Deb as a grooming instructor. She has a vast amount of professional
experience in both show and pet grooming and instructs in a very clear, easy to understand way.
After graduating from grooming school I went on to work at a salon as the only groomer. Due
to the excellent instruction I received, I was well prepared and confident in my abilities as
a new groomer."
Iím in love with Deb Stoverís teaching and would back anyone who wants to go into it.
I loved her videos and I still refer to my notes on occasion. She is still very helpful
and I cannot thank her enough for a great start in a career that is so rewarding and a
dream come true for me. Yes, together, we ARE raising the standards in the grooming industry!
Miss Deb Stover has done so much as my professional grooming instructor.
Not only in changing my life but giving me the gift of being a successful groomer and owner of
my own grooming shop! (I'm 21) Deb's excitement for all the animals always made school
a fun thing, anything that seems like the impossible Deb will make
the possible. Deb will take so much time to answer all possible questions,
she goes so far explaining all answers in detail you will never have a hard
time in class. In all truth if you want to learn from the best you need
to go HipDog School of Grooming Arts!!
