  • Jodi Murphy Announces 4 New DVD Release May 2010

    The Havanese

    The Havanese is becoming a very popular little breed. They have a flashy personality that pet owners cannot resist. The Havanese has a very unique look. Jodi will show you how to capture that distinct Havanese expression. Two trims will be demonstrated in this 80 minute DVD. Jodi will demonstrate a longer natural trim which she describes as the “Shag”. This trim is done with thinning shears as well as shears to keep the natural look of the Havanese. A shorter more tailored trim is then demonstrated for easier upkeep. This trim is done with the use of snap-on combs and scissors. Your pet owners will just love this look!

    I don't groom any Havanese, but I got this DVD. The "shag" cut that she shows REALLY is nice. I would work on other breeds, like Lhasas and mixes like that.

        I have those DVD's and I have to say the trim she does on the Havanese that is mentioned in the OP ("the Shag") is the best thing since sliced bread. I do this trim on yorkies and shih tzus all the time since I watched this DVD. It is longer, more natural, doesn't produce the lines that snap-on combs usually do. It's also FUN! Something different for a change. If I could figure out this blankety blank new system for posting photos, I'd post my shih tzu client photo in the Shag. You should also charge a little more for this trim, it's a little more work, and the results show!

        If you ordered DVD's recently, BE PATIENT. I read on Facebook or somewhere that Jodi was out of town for a bit, AND one of her Cockers is having a serious back surgery, so she may not be able to get these out right away. But...they're worth the wait.

            Here are my photos of "The Shag" but on a shih tzu instead of a Havanese.

            Just a note: This dog had NO HOCK HAIR to start with.

                Very nice pics and it definately turned out okay...I have had problems in the past getting these coats to look good including my own girl so can't wait for the hair to grow back to try this method. The DVD was great, very informational!

                  Not sure...there's actually a method to it, similar to how I've seen Jodi do a Wheaten, believe it or not. It's not just "thinning shears all over," or whatnot.

                  It is a lot more fun than are plain ol' snap-on comb cuts, that's for sure!
