Setting a Schnauzer Inspired Trim
on a Yorkie
with Jennifer Hecker, CMG


This is a unique trim for this breed.  It's a great option if you have a Yorkie owner who just doesn't want to deal with long hair.  Do a Schnauzer inspired trim!


This is a super-fast - and simple - trim to do.  Award-winning pet stylist Jennifer Hecker choose a close blade to set the body pattern in a flash.  She works with the lay of the coat as she transitions into the furnishings for an almost invisible pattern line.


This little guy is so typical of what we see every day in our pet grooming salons.  He's super sweet but he has a few conformational issues.  That's OK!  Jennifer works with what she has - just like we all do every day.  The trim comes together quickly, it's easy to care for, and it is certainly unique.


Approximate total running time:  25 minutes 


In this video you will learn:

  • what blade length to use on the body
  • which tools get the trim done in a flash
  • how to blend to minimize lines
  • a fun style addition to add to the ears
  • how to trim between the eyes

Grooming the Bedlington Terrier                 

Most professional pet stylists will agree: the Bedlington Terrier is one of the most challenging breeds to groom correctly. When done properly, the bulk of the work with this particular breed consists of short clipper work combined with skillful hand scissoring. This lesson is so packed with useful information, we had to split the video into two lessons. Grab your notebook and join Colin as he shows you how to groom the Bedlington Terrier.
