    Jiggy Including Grooms in Your Portfolio

    To give an employer a good idea of your all around skills if you could only put 5 grooms in it, what would you choose?

    1. Poodle with clean feet, clean face, nice top knot.
    2. Schnauzer, or other long-legged terrier.
    3. Cocker spaniel (or Springer or English, even though their lines are different than Am.Cocker)
    4. Drop coated breed trim like shih-tzu, Maltese, Lhasa, etc.
    5. Outline trim for double-coated dogs, like Goldens, Aussies, etc.

    I think I would also include a Bichon, because many groomers don't get proper Bichon head. I currently groom a few Bichons that the owners say all the other groomers groomed to look like a poodle.

    ^^^ This. Only thing I would add to this list is make sure the drop coated dog had a really cute scissored face. Even towards the asian style if that is something you do.

    1) A hand scissor groom. Either a Bichon Frise or a scissored (not clipped) Poodle, Bedlington, etc. to show your proficiency at hand scissoring.
    2) A long-legged or short-legged terrier. Clipped is okay, but if you are including hand stripping on your resume, a hand stripped dog would be best.
    3) A sporting breed dog in the correct pattern.
    4) If you used a Bichon for #1, then include a clipped Poodle here. If you used a Poodle, then maybe an unusual/rare breed in the correct pattern.
    5) A bread-and-butter full groom on a Shih Tzu, Maltese, Yorkie, Lhasa Apso, etc. with the cutest face ever!

    Some good answers. You know when you limit things to only so many answers it really brings out great sense, common sense and genius. As an employer I would much rather take a look at 5 appropriate ones rather than a big portfolio.

    I actually put a creative in my portfolio once and the employer loved it. Why? She said we don't much call for it but it would be good to know we could do it if you were here. Who would have thought?

    I would totally be guilty of slapping down the hugest photo book on their desk and expecting them to look at the cute dogs for hours!
