Mini Lesson with Lindsey Dicken:  How to Trim
a Show Style Bichon Head

The hallmark of the Bichon Frise is its expression. In this Mini Lesson, top stylist Lindsey Dicken shows you how to trim a classic show head style.

Join Lindsey as she demonstrates her winning ways just for our L2GD members.

Number 1!
Grooming a Mature Golden Retriever in a Puppy Cut
Misty Fowler, CMG 

Do you have Golden clients that insist they want a haircut for their pooch? We know, we know... it's considered a cardinal sin to trim a Golden, but some owners just won't give up - they want their dogs shorter! If you don't do it, the groomers down the street will - and happily collect the money for doing it! What options do you have? The simplest trim is a shave off, but it's not all that appealing. Misty shows you two versions of a super cute trim. The first one she calls a "sporting trim." The second one she terms a "puppy trim." On both trims, Misty uses guard combs to set the length of the body coat. With one trim she leaves the feathers longer. In the second version, she trims the longer furnishings shorter. The differences are slight but both haircuts turn back the clock of time on this dog. The Golden looks like a puppy again. The end result is a trim that is appealing and easy to care for.
