Amateur grooming #4

Kodi was very patient with another marathon grooming session, but I think Iím getting better at it!

Great job! Wow, that's a lot of hair. I would bet Kodi loves his new do.

You did a good job! I especially like the photo of the hair in the shape of a dog! I almost thought it was real!

You might inspire me to try grooming, which I need to do in summers because we are in the mountains where there are no luxury type dog groomers. I think, the hardest part is scissor cutting the legs. I've got everything to do the job .... except it would be very! helpful to have a professional tub to bath her in.

Kodie looks great!!

I wash them in the kitchen sink. No professional tub! LOL! I started out scissoring his legs, and that's how I did his disasterous second cut that I didn't even SHOW here because it was so bad. He looked like the moths ate him! LOL! (A little uneven? I'll cut a little more here...) I'm actually using clippers with the LONGEST comb now, which is longer than groomers usually use (most people want their clip-jobs to "last" longer! LOL!) and I've found that I have to go down 2 comb lengths to do his legs. The longest comb takes nothing off at all.

I would, ideally, like him a TINY bit fluffier than this, but he will be again in 2 weeks or so, and he'll be EVEN. If I scissored him, he'd be longer, but uneven. I'm not a professional, so I have to compromise. LOL!

Not too bad! After Brisket finished his championship, I took him down to about 4" all over his body and blended the rest...apparently hand scissoring for my first ever groom was ambitious, and he didn't get to go on any outings for the first week, but now that it's had time to grow...cuuuute! Not a permanent thing for him, though, unlike Kodi
