Bosley after his usual #7F
shavedown with tight face and ears. His owner doesn't like the fuss of having a hairy dog, and Bos hates being brushed. This
simple short no frills style works for them both.
It's Christmas time! With family
and friends visiting, you want your pet to look their best. By bringing Dex to CCH for his holiday bath and trim, his owner
had extra time to get ready for guests! And Dexter went from looking slightlly shaggy to...
Just a bath and a little trim
sure makes a difference! Dexter can't believe I'm wasting his time taking pictures when I could be calling his owner to Come
And Get Him!!
Since Dex's coat was in good shape, no tangles, excessive undercoat or matting, all he needed was a good
bath and brushing and a trim. This is a basic "trim all over". The outline is cleaned up, his chest, belly, rear,
tail and feet. He's still toasty warm for winter, but looks nice a tidy!
You probably can't tell, but
there's alot of hair here! Oberon likes to play out with his sister out in the rain and mud. He might look a little ragged
now, but after a bath, some fluffing and a shave....
Obe with a CD (clip down, ie,
one length all over the body)#5. He keeps his topknot and tail. He also gets a "clean" face and feet. "Clean"
meaning shaved close.
This is a short, no nonsense clip that allows him to romp in the mud without alot of clean up
Pun'kin in a CD #3skip. Just
shy of an inch long, this is an easy to take care of clip for the fluffly dog. Still easy for her owner to brush out, not
to long, but still fluffy.
Pun is in a traditional pet Portie Water Dog clip, with a short topknot, clean muzzle and
a pompuff at the end of the tail.
Tyler came in a few days before
St Patricks Day. His young owner asked if I could do a mohawk and dye it green. Can I?! We had a blast.
Still Dexter! Here he is in
a summer clip (#5F all over). He loves it! Once all that hair comes off he looks and acts just like a puppy.
Maggie on her second groom.
The first time we got most of the undercoat out but her second groom it all came out. Even though she's a big shaggy collie
you can run a comb through her entire coat without it catching on hair.
Maggie is a great example of how regular grooming
can really make all the difference in your pet's coat. Maggie will be cooler and more comfortable this summer. Plus it's easier
for her owners to brush her out and remove twigs after a romp in the woods.
Molly is a mulch dog. You can
see the mats on the front of the thigh and the back of her front legs. This is after her bath, she was too dirty to run the
clippers under the coat. A good bath and some conditioner will help repair and seal the hair shaft,making it a bit easier
to groom AND will protect the hair.
With a 4F all over and using
a 10 to clip out the really tight mats, Molly still looks cute as can be. Her head got taken shorter to maintain proportion
with her body, and in turn looks adorable!
Sammy has the neated feet.
I love 'em!
Jasmine is a cocker mix with
silky hair that grows wild. Her owner wanted to keep her long, but without the crazy-hair-everywhere.
And....after a quick clipping
with a 2" blade, Jasmine kept all the length on her body, but shortened the skirt and feathering, bringing it even and
Finish it off with trimming the feet and rounding the bottom of her ears, putting on a couple of bows
and Jasmine is nice and tidy!
Bernie keeps his full Terrier
coat through out most of the year. Usually he gets a bath and a little trim. Just enough to keep him neat in that "ungroomed"
(There's a picture of Bernie after a trim in here somewhere)
But this time...
Bernie gets a summer cut! I
took Bernie down with a 3/4" blade. First though, I stripped out some a his undercoat. Not only does this make the clip
smoother and more even, but it will help preserve the nature of the wiry Terrier coat.
Roxy is a super cute beagle
mix. In the cooler seasons her hair grows out a bit and is nice and wiry.
For the summer she gets a shave, leaving
some eyebrows and a short beard to keep some personality.
While I shaved her a little closer than I think her owner
may have wanted, the shorter length allowed me to clip her smoothly, without any clipper tracks. This makes for a more natural,
beautiful clip. The thickness of her coat keeps her from looking "buzzed" and no skin shows at all. Believe it or
not Roxy got a #5 reverse.
Farley the happy Maltese. Bathed,
fluffed and brushed, ready for his summer 'do.
Another summer cut, this is
a 4F, I believe. Farley had some matting on the bottom tips of his ears, and his owners kindly agreed to giving shaved ears
a shot. I think shaved ears are super cute, although most owners do not agree with this.
I'm not sure what Farley's
folks thought, I think they're getting used to the difference before forming an opinion.
Sometimes it's fun just to
try something a little different!
Sorry for cutting off the top
of your head! Blondie the goldendoodle in a #4F. I'm not a fan of those big shaggy 'mutt heads'. So I'm delighted that neither
is Blondies owner! I scissor her muzzle short. Keeps her face, dryer and cleaner.
Blondie's a sweet girl and very lovable.
By not having a long beard soaking up water and chunks of food, she's much more huggable!
Maggie is a Yorkie mix former
pound puppy. Usually she gets just the corners of her eyes trimmed, along with a sanitary and her feet trimmed. She looks
really cute in the shaggy, messy terrier way.
Here we go! Similar to Jasmine,
I used a long blade attachment comb to clip Maggie's hair even with her back. Now her out of control look is much more tidy,
but still long and loaded with personality.
This sweet little Lhasa/poodle
mix came to me for her first haircut in March. I just took a little off, leaving her a fluffy puppy.
A few months and
a bunch of tangles later Bella came back for a summer cut. With a light colored a thinner coat, the 4F looks short, but it
will help keep her cool and be easier for her owners to maintain.
Marley is a very cute crossbreed.
Unfortunately, the mix of Shih Tzu and Maltese has left her with a coat with a stringy topcoat and a very soft, cottony undercoat.
The top coat is fine and easy to care for, but the undercoat mats very easily.
Keeping Marley in a 1inch clip allows
her to stay fluffly, but is still easy for her owners to take care off. Luckily they DO brush her at home, otherwise with
this type of coat Marley would be a short shavedown every time.
This Marley is a Yorkie/Poodle
mix. This cross produce a coat that is thin and silky. Even though I clipped her 3/4", the thinner hair makes it appear
This type of coat is interesting, because it will always look shorter than it is, but leaving it longer can
make it appear thin and scragglely, while going a little shorter can make it look fuller.
not a big fan of cockapoos, but this little guy was just too cute for me!
