    Talk to the owner,of course,and see what they want.

    I’ve had a couple at my shop. They weren’t heavily coated so it was more of a Brush, Bath and Tidy. Neatened up feet, shaved throat and blended that into sides of neck and cheeks. Removed hair from in front of the ear canal.

    Sometimes the owner wanted the leg feathering shortened. Sometimes they wanted all body coat shortened. Sometimes as above

    They did like the ears trimmed and they liked the little blond ‘mohawk’ hairs on the top of the skull, so I left that. I did clean up any fuzzies on the head, just too give a cleaner look.

    Fun dogs. I think you’ll like working with them.

    I have only really groomed one before and the owner liked him shaved down for easy maintenence. Sorry, I know that isn't much of a help. Good Luck and post pictures.

    I have one. He's from the USA from a hunting kennel so I think he's less coated than a show one. We do trim all over. He's dark chocolate brown. We trim feet/ legs, I card his whole topline and use a guard comb to take off the straggilys( 3/4) and go over with blenders. I should have a pic....

    Be careful on feet. We do a lot of them and they are almost always funny about feet and snappy on nails.

    Even show Boykin are lightly coated. Some are flat, some frizzy, some fluffy some curly... almost all the plantations are using this breed to hunt here. I see bunches. I have done several blogs on the breed.

    Do you do some carding? Itza is right that along the top is very nice if you can.
