COAT & GROOM TIPS

Some owners desire the whiskers to be clipped, but you should first check with the owner. Use scissors.

The finished appearance can often be improved using a final coat conditioner (the type applied after the bath). Most of these conditioners, used sparingly, are lightly rubbed onto the coat, and then distributed with a light, gentle brushing.

Use a rubber brush during the bath to remove excess dead hair that has not shed off the dog. A hound brush used during drying should leave the coat smooth and flat.

MORE GROOMING TIPS FOR PROFESSIONALS

"Regarding the facial folds - cleaning them with baby wipes before bathing helps gently clean out debris. If a clipper blade is used it can irritate the skin. It happened to one client's dog. I tend to lean to the conservative side when grooming; I don't want to irritate a dog's face. He can paw at irritation and even scratch his eye's cornea in the process. So, baby wipes followed by a bath, followed by thorough drying and application of baby powder in the folds to absorb moisture works best." Submitted by Mark Hamilton.

Try a whitening shampoo for brilliant results. Also, use scissors to neaten up the edge of the ears.

These books contain little or no breed specific grooming information. They do provide very good to excellent general breed information. Of course, having pictures of the breed is a great help when grooming the breed compared to having nothing else.
