  • Airedale

    This is one of my all time favorite dogs to groom. I've been doing him since he was 12 weeks old. He's a really good boy, never moves during the groom. But he's not too fond of having his picture taken, and I couldn't get those ears up to save my life.

      He looks so smooth. He looks like a real sweetie. What blade do you use on him?

          He got buzzed with a 7 skip 3 months ago. Since then I've been using a Coat King and stripping knife to keep him in shape. I guess technically it's not rolling, because I don't pluck, but it has the same effect. The only clipping he's gotten is his head/ears/throat. Oh, and sanitary clip.

            He looks beautiful, but a little sad too. Just doesn't want a pic taken.

            Some day I hope the Airedale that I groom will behave herself. I'm hoping the gh will help with that. She is pretty good for most of her body but is crazy when it comes to her head.

              Very nice

              I hope to be able to do an Airedale someday. We don't see many of them here, however, there are a few around (one of the other groomers shows them).

                Nice groom, Helly! I love the head, it looks very sharp.

                I have never seen an Airedale with coloring like this---don't they usually have red (whatever they call that color) on their thighs?

                  Well, he's still a young'n. A lot of dogs with black saddles have too much black extending down their legs until they get a little older. I used to have a GSD that was almost totally black as a baby, and didn't totally change color until he was almost 3.

                      wow since 12 weeks. that is great that the owner allowed you to groom the dog at such a young age. the earlier the better. I hate getting those dogs that have never been groomed until they are 1-3 years old. Those dogs tend to be harder to handle.

                            By the way, the PHOTO could use some improvement. For a pet trim, there's nothing wrong with the groom. What you see as imperfections are the result of bad camera work...and a couple of lipomas.

                              I seriously doubt that you actually think you can't improve that beautiful pet groom. Even after 30+ years at this, you are still learning and improving your already stellar abilities. Even on technically "incorrect" pet grooms. And even though this pet groom is far more than many of us could achieve, I would think you would still do it even better in the future. You are more than welcome to disagree, but there is ALWAYS room for improvement, IMO.
