  • golden retriever cut

    I have alot of customers who want their goldens short but not shaved. I use Romani's c.v. with a c comb in reverse with the cv opened. I have also used an A comb in reverse. Nice job. Just wondering what other people have tried with the cv.

    I have used anywhere from an E comb down to a 4 blade w/the iVac ATG and w/TG. I usually prefer going ATG, but on some coats going with seems to work best. The higher combs do give them a nice fluffy look though.

      I LOVE my CV ) I use it alot with my snap on combs. I have alot of goldens that come in wanting shorter but not shaved. I like using the C on the body. Sometimes an O. I do use a #1 on one golden. Depends on what the owner wants.
      Nice to know someone else does this too. LOL
      Main reason I bought the CV was for poodle feet and faces. Works wonders with those. So much faster. Love it.

        I use the bigger combs with the open CV too. I never got a hang of the reverse thing, so I go with the lay of the hair.
        I think the goldens look nice with a comb cut.

          I dunno, this may be a dumb ?, but what about if you dont have a cv. I am just starting buying stuff and I dont know if I can afford one right now, but one of my friends wants me to groom her golden. Any suggestions? thanx.

            I don't have a cv. I usually use a C comb against the growth. Sometimes I use a #3 with. It depends on how much length the owner wants.

              It's nice to have, but you definitely don't NEED one. The CV makes your job a little bit easier because it pulls up the hair as it clips, but like I said while it's nice to have it's not a necessity when you are just starting out...there are more important things to begin with.
              Whenever doing a dog, regardless of breed, it's always a good idea to go over everything the owner wants done...IE length left on body, ears, tail, etc. Especially with a golden as they can have a lot of undercoat. Make sure you cover with your friend that if they want a comb attachment you may need to do some undercoat removal.

                  LOL...you definately will learn a lot if you stick w/this board. True some of it will be useless knowledge.....lol...

                  About the CV, you defiantely don't need one, I worked w/out for 20 yrs before I decided to give it a try. Instead of investing in a TaxiVac or Clippervac I bought the iVAC. I couldn't say if it is as good as the pricier models, since I never used any, but it works well for me! I bought the package which includes the clipper, 10 blade and Vac attachment. All you need is a shop vac. I think I spent a total of around $200.00 for the whole thing. Definately worth it!!
