Sturtevant, WI – (February 2014) Lindsey Dicken, a National Certified Master Groomer from Altamonte Springs, FL, received the honor of Andis Groomer of the Year during the Purina Pro Plan’s 59th Annual Show Dogs of the Year Awards dinner held February 8, 2014 at Gotham Hall in New York City. The event is held two days before the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
“Being a professional dog groomer means you are part of a small, elite group of individuals who have answered a calling,” said Karen Formico, vice president of marketing for Andis. “Andis is thrilled to be able to support the Groomer of the Year competition to recognize these very talented people.”
After nine years of professional grooming, and competing for seven, Lindsey has qualified for Groom Team USA’s Top 10 Stylists every year she was eligible. She has been named the #1 ranked groomer in the nation five times. In 2009 and 2013, she traveled to Germany and Spain respectively and helped Groom Team USA bring home the Gold.
Every groomer has their “cannot live without” tool that they must have on-hand while working.
Depending on type of dog or grooming business those tools can and will change. After polling Facebook fans here is what we found.

What is it & how does it work?
Simply speaking, microbubbles are just very small bubbles. To qualify as “micro”, a bubble must, in fact, be less than a 1000 micrometers in size.
However, to be effective for deep cleaning skin, the bubbles should be less than 25 micrometers in size and larger than 2. This allows them to penetrate hair follicles and skin pores while not passing through epidermis.
Thera-Clean has perfected a system that uniformly generates bubbles ranging from 3 to 20 micrometers.
To put this in perspective, a typical human red blood cell is approximately 8 micrometers in size; a
human hair is approximately 70 micrometers and most bacteria are between 3 and 40 micrometers in size.

NANO VOLCANIC MINERALS
Reliq nanotech cleaning agents are derived from the deposits of weathered volcanic ash, a medicinal powdered clay which had been called the Living Clay, of Healing Clay by the ancient American Indians. It has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally “drinks” oils, toxic substances, and impurities from the skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion, and tightening pores. This magic ingredient is marvelous for helping to clear problem skin and the unwanted odor problem.

His owner and groomer, Heather Roozee owns A Groomery in DeKalb, IL.
