  • Bichon I did today

    Here is a picture of a Bichon that I do once in a while. I did not do him last time, as he lives out of the area, and the only time I do him is when his Mom brings her Bichons and other dogs into groom. Her Mom is the one with the little female, Mimosa, that had the pups which I posted in the other site.

    The picture is Theo, and his chin hair was way short, which I only evened up and he gets clean feet. I did him the first part of Nov. and he got messed up again in between. He has really soft coat. The top of his head was way long.

    Beautiful

    Beautiful heads. bodies and nice full talls. Nice scissoring on those legs. What did you use on legs and body? Do most of your customers like the bottom of the ear trimmed to the leather? I don't have many that like the ears the way they should be and it throws the whole head off sometimes.
    I've never seen a Bichon with clean feet, they're so tiny.

              Thanks everyone. I used a 1/2 comb on his back and scissored the rest. I really didn't like doing his legs that short but the clean feet thing makes that hard. He does look like a squirrel and that is partly do to doing his legs so short. I don't think he has a level topline either.

                    It's hard to say how long I have been grooming. My mother was a groomer and raised poodles. I was a brusher bather on my weekends all thru high school to support my horse habit. Mom didn't want me to groom and sent me to cosmotology school. I got my license, but didn't like it. Than I went to grooming school in my early 30's and I am 56. Now both my girls groom.

                        What a great groom. He looks beautiful. A Bichon with clean feet, they look very nice.
                        None of my children want to learn how to groom. How did you do it? May be what I should have told them is "No, you are not allowed to groom, EVER!!) then they would have shown some interest

                          I didn't want my girls to groom. They both could get excellent grades in school if they wanted to, but they just wanted to quit. My older daughter wanted out of high school and I could not keep her going, so she took the high school equvalancy test and passed. She than had to come to work with me and learn to groom. It was either that or I was possibly going to have her taken away from me. I once had to walk her to all her classes for 2 weeks. I had to sit in the high school parking lot and wait for each class to be over, as she would ride the bus to school and go play all day.

                              That is great that you were so determined to get your girls to finish High School. I know that if my kids are determined to drop out I will be just as devoted and determined as you were to keep them in. Just out of curiosity though, why didn't you want your girls to groom? I think I would be delighted if my kids wanted to be groomers. True, it is hard work, but w/today's technology and education it has become a lot more prestigious of a career than it was years ago and a person can certainly make a great living off of it.
