Grooming & Showing Instructional DVD

OK If one of these was offered, who would be interested. Probably two different DVD's. From someone who really knew what they were doing.

Grooming would be a video on bathing, brushing and maintenance. How to put their hair up, keep up their coat, trimming... the whole shabang.

Showing would be basic handling tips. How many people know where to start in the ring? I only learned by people telling me what I did wrong when I came out of the ring. And thats not the best time to tell me something, haha. So a basic ring etiquette with tips and tricks.

I was trying to tell someone how this would help people, so I am curious who else feels this way.

There is no commitment, just if its something you would consider purchasing. And any comments on things you would like would be GREAT!

Well Dora is BIS in my house but I would really love a video that helped on cutting the paws-hers look pretty funny right now Also, If the video maybe had a good pet havanese trim- I bet a lot of pet owners would love that!

Amanda, I agree! My dogs are perfect, not many people know that, hahaha and they need a cut BAD. Well Goldie does, Stogie just needs a bath.

My poll choices reflect my feisty mood.

The nails kill me, Stogies are black. I try to take them to the vet for that.

Oh yes, I agree! Cutting black nails would be really good to know, I made the poor puppy bleed on 3 nails (just a tad, no big blood loss so far, phew).

I gave up cutting capote's black nails..I file them now with a nail file..I kept hurting him.

And I so totally chose the last one..not because I don't need any help..lol. Just because it was funny..

I would love to see some bang trimming tips! I'm not sure if I will ever actually trim Kubrick's bangs, but seeing Suzanne's video of Sierra, I would really love to have a guide as to how to get that look.

And I'm always up for a good tip on how to do things better.

Thats a great idea!! Although Linda did a demonstration at my house during one of the playdates, she didnt have a lot of time to show us the bathing, I am sure I have lots more to learn. I have been grooming my guys since November but sure could use a few tips!! Although I think my guys are "perfect" I know that their haircuts are "not perfect" lol

I would be up for the grooming. You can never get too much constructive help and after the stories about groomers I would not leave Smarty with one (never say never). I don't plan on showing much more but would like the info.

a grooming video (or DVD) would be awesome. Jasper volunteers to be the model for the difficult dog----the one who practically has a heart attack any time anyone comes near his nails--LOL
