Creating a Modern Trim Style on a Shih Tzu/Poodle Mix
Judy Hudson, NCMG   
Judy Hudson is one of our most popular Training Partners on Learn2GroomDogs.com. She travels the world demonstrating grooming skills to pet professionals. When she is not in front of an audience or a video camera, she grooms dogs just like you.
This modern style offers plenty of flair, yet it is relatively low maintenance for the owner. In a busy pet home, that's a winning combination. The head is round. The ears are bobbed. The body is shorter while the legs are left fuller with beveled feet. As she works around this little cutie, Judy talks about structure, angles, and working safely.
Here's a unique twist. In this lesson, Judy shows you how to do the same trim using two different tools to set the body length. One blade on one side of the dog and the second option on the flip side. She discusses the differences of working with a #4 blade versus using a metal guard comb. Both options leave approximately the same length of coat.
Our model dog for this lesson is an adorable little mixed breed. We are guessing she is a combination of Shih Tzu and Poodle. We are betting you have similar looking dogs in your own clientele.

Session A:  Clipper work on the body
Session B:  Trimming the feet, legs, and tail
Session C:  Styling the head

Approximate total running time:  49 minutes

In this lesson, you will learn: 
  • how to use different tools to do the same type of haircut.
  • points of reference you can use on any type of dog.
  • why working with clippers is better than working with shears for the bulk of your work.
  • how to cut in a quick kick-up for style and flair.
  • how to get a beautiful edge on an ear.
