    Agree Maintenance groom for cockers

    Cocker people. What are your favorite trims for Cockers for owners that do some brushing and combing, but not a lot or real well. I am still a bit weak and cockers and do like them. They are so beautiful when taken care of. What are your favorite maintenance styles. Thank you for helping.

    I always put them in a modified breed clip, but for maintenance do them much shorter. If they don’t brush them, I might do a #10 head with topknot/crown, #10 neck, #5 blade on the jacket , with maybe a Wahl 0 or A comb on the side coat and legs.

    I googled and found this here by Jodi. Sometimes I would even consider a little shorter if the owner simply isn't taking frequent care to brush their dog. https://petgroomermagazine.com/artic...n-field-trims/

    The majority of my cocker clients opt for a 10/w on back & head and 4 on legs and furshings. Remember I am in E Tx where it is HOT! A few of mine go for a 10/w all over.........these are all regular clients (4 to 6 wks).
    Ain't always easy to stand up for what is right.

    Yes and even shorter for like Cyn was saying and yet not that short if they still want more a Cocker look. Beautiful grooms.

    Be sure to take pictures of the different lengths and show them. You could print that Jodi article out, and look for other pictures online and show them to your customers. Don't rely on words alone in describing styles.

    I have found that most of my cockers do get a maintenance short groom and using pictures is a great idea. Many of them have owners that realize, holy cow, this breed takes a lot of brushing and combining, several times a week if full coated. I love the full coat, very beautiful but we all know it is a great deal of work that most owners are likely to eventually have shorter.
