Award winning pet stylist, Tracy Duncan says about 75% of the dogs at her shop get this trim. It's super popular. It's cute. It's easy to maintain. It's a good length for multiple seasons. It's a trim the pet can wear all year round. The goal with this trim style is to get the look of a stuffed animal - soft and plushy.
And the best part; it's a fast haircut to do. She says this trim should only take 20-25 minutes to do once the dog is bathed, dried and fluffed out.
In this lesson, Tracy gives loads of details as she works over the dog. She tells you what types of tools she likes best - and why. She gives plenty of verbal detail on the most basic trimming techniques as she demonstrates how to do it; like clipping the groin area, running the clippers and trimming the feet.
Most stylists are quick to grab the longer guard combs to trim the head. Not Tracy. She does it almost all with straight shears using some great tricks and reference points to get it even.
This is an excellent lesson for new pet groomers struggling with drop coated breeds or just getting their careers started.
