How to do a Cute & Easy Trim on an Older Shih Tzu
Amy Triezenberg    

Drop coated pets are some of the most common types we see in our salons. Shih Tzus, Lhasas, Yorkies, Doodles - they are always on our appointment books. Yet for many groomers, this coat presents challenges. It's hard to get their coats smooth, even, and attractive. Add older dog health issues to the mix and your work is really cut out for you.
In this lesson, award-winning stylist, Amy Triezenberg, is working on an older Shih Tzu. This little dog has health issues and does not like to stand up. She shows you how to do a cute trim that is quick and fast - even when the dog doesn't want to stay on its feet. She shows you how to move the trim along quickly while making the dog comfortable for the grooming process.
Amy is a master at explaining details. We love how she communicates with fabulous clarity. She excels at telling what she is doing and why. Whether it is with trimming, handling the pet, or dealing with the customer, Amy talks you through the entire groom with ease.

Grooming the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier
in a Show Trim

In this lesson, Lindsey shows you how to groom a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. Lindsey has built a large part of her reputation on grooming this breed. The trim Lindsey puts on this dog is suitable for the pet contest arena or the conformation show ring.

As she works over the dog, you'll learn how to get the classic outline for the breed. This is definitely a dog that is supposed to look very natural and not 'over groomed.'
