Listen to the GroomPod


The first ever grooming podcast is here!  Groomers can download, plug in their ear buds and listen to weekly broadcasts of grooming industry news, trending issues, tips and techniques.  Best friends Barbara Bird and Susy Scott get together every Sunday morning to record their views and experiences with a wide range of topics of interest to pet groomers.  The broadcast is informal and informative, sprinkled with personal experiences, wisdom, and humor.  Some groomers still remember when these two entertained the Saturday night gathering at Atlanta Pet Fair with a totally improvised take on “Lucy & Ethel Try Grooming.”  Together again, Barbara and Susy share their passions for grooming as well as their light-hearted take on life.

Barbara Bird, ICMG, known as “BBird” to her Internet friends, is an award-winning writer and educator who is respected for her rational and science-based approach to grooming products.  She has been the owner/operator at Transformation Pet Center in Tucson, Arizona since 1977.

Susy Scott, ICMG, operates a mobile grooming in outskirts of Seattle, Washington, and has been a key figure with Washington state groomers for over a decade.

The Groom Pod can be accessed by the website: or on Facebook as The Groom Pod Discussion Group.  Groomers are encouraged to request topics, share opinions and experiences and participate in making The Groom Pod relevant and valuable for all groomers.   ♦
