Asian Confusion on a Bichon
Lindsey Dicken, NCMG 
Join Award-winning stylist, Lindsey Dicken as she rocks it out with an Asian Fusion style trim on her own Bichon, Eve.
Lindsey maintains key elements from the Bichon trim with an Asian flair. Eve is an older dog who has been retired from the competition circuit, yet Lindsey still likes to have fun with her coat. The end result is absolutely adorable. Lindsey says she's taken more pictures of this dog in this trim than any time in her entire life. If you know Lindsey - you know she takes lots of pictures of her own dogs!
Lindsey gets the look using a combination of techniques. She uses clippers, scissors, and blenders. She shows you exactly where to go short and where to transition into longer coat. She also talks about helpful products and tools to achieve great results - including a knockout bow and fun red (yes RED) eyelashes!
Asian style is all about extremes combined with precision trimming. There is no right or wrong with this type of haircut. Once you get the hang of doing this type of trimming, you can get done pretty quickly and charge a much larger fee.

Learn How to Groom the Pet Italian Truffle Dog:
Lagotto Romagnolo               

When Kendra first suggested she show our members how to groom one of these breeds - we honestly had no idea what kind of dog she was talking about. What was a Lagotto? This is a rustic coated breed that is supposed to look messy.

In this grooming lesson, Kendra shows you how to get the correct look for the breed. Much of the work is done in the coat preparation (see the video Maintaining a Rustic Coat by Kendra Otto) If a coat is correctly cared for - this trim is a snap. Kendra uses a snap-on-comb to set the length of the coat. She then tidies up the outline of the dog with a variety of thinning and blending shears. The end result is a thorough groom that still looks "messy" as the breed standard requires.
