Default Groomer to teach me

Is it reasonable to ask a groomer to teach me to groom my own dog? I understand this, long-term, removes potential income from the groomer. I've never used a pro groomer, nor will I.

I would pay for her time, of course. If so, how do you suggest I ask? There are a few grooming shops around plus a couple mobile units. I don't know how to research who to ask. Maybe a mobile or in-home business would be more suitable to this special request?

I have a Papillon and a Lab-like mix. I would want this person to walk me through bathing, drying, and combing on my dog, and also reviewing my supplies.

I guess I could ask the Pap's breeder but I'd also like tips on how best to blow out the Lab and deshedding. The breeder's show goals are more hair and weekly baths; my pet goals are less hair and baths .
