  • Atlanta Pet Fair

    Do you think I would have any chance of placing in Atlanta if I did a clippered Scottie? I had to stop handstripping her beause her owner let her get into black sun flower seeds and her coat was a mass of oil, plus they didn't like her hand stripped. But I really would like to compete again with her.

        You can place in entry with a clippered terrier IF its done well (NOT a 7F on the back). I have seen it happen that even in A someone with a well clippered scottie placed. It is less lkely the higher you go but in entry I say go for it. I do not know the judge. Not familiar at all.

          Thanks for the input, that was my feeling. I think I'll give it a go, if her owner will let me borrow her again.

            Instead of clippering

            use thinning shears for the back. That's what I do for schnauzers when I compete (entry level). I don't do that for their regular pet trim, but gives a really nice finish for competition.

              My mom placed with a clipped Scotty Entry division a few years back so it is possible. She said she used a 5f and thinners. Good luck
