It is is not hard to learn to groom. It just takes lots of practice. A good set of clipprrs will be your best friend. Try to follow the groom that you have, make little changes in the way you want the groom you want.

Week 37

Louis had a lot more matting on his rear legs and rump for some reason. I blame the wet weather and him laying down on wet hair. When it rains, his feet are so wet and nasty. I trimmed them shorter than last time. I know they look pointy and even his toes show through, but at least it stays cleaner! He also stepped in some kind of goop on one foot. I thought it was poop until it didn't dissolve in the bath, and I also had a hard time cutting through it. I shaved it off.

First pic is after the bath, before feet trimming.
Second pic is after feet trimming.
The last pic shows how dirty he looks right after grooming him! I took him out to potty and his beard and feet were a mess.

If you are interested in grooming your Havanese yourself, you can check out the Havanese DVD by Jodi Murphy. https://jodimurphy.net/shop/the-havanese/ - I have not watched this one, but if it is like any of her videos, it will be good!

Love the little fountain on his head. He's looking real cute with his long hair and, I agree, it's been great seeing the transformation from day one to now. Thank you for doing it.

Week 38

If you have a dog that is scared of the force dryer, try using a Happy Hoodie. It's an elastic tubular shaped towel that fits snugly around their head to muffle the noise. Louis loves his! It also helps soak up the moisture on the ears. Ears take forever to dry so that's great! Second pic shows Louis's hair under the stand dryer.

Edit: added more pics!
