    My goal for this thread is for it to be a helpful reference to those who are looking for information on grooming. Basically, it make life easier by having all of these resources all in one thread. I would like to continue to update the thread with more helpful links as they are created, here’s how you can help…

    If you know of a thread that would make a good addition to one of the categories on this thread, PM me with the link, and the section you think it should go under. Please do not post it here, I do not want this thread to become flooded.

    If you know of a whole new category that would make a good addition to the thread, PM me! You need to have a topic for the new category and there needs to be at least 5 good threads to support the topic. Again, please do not post here.

    By a “good” thread, I mean a thread that is chock-full of useful information, whether it be in the introduction or the replies, it must have useful information. I don’t want/need repetitive threads, there’s no point.
    I hope all of you great members can help me make this a great thread that everyone can refer to! I know it can!

    I would be forever thankful if a mod would consider making this thread sticky, so that it doesn’t get lost among all of the gazillions of threads… thanks!
