  • Video snippets for grooming the English Cocker

    Just wanted to share...
    What do you Eng. Cocker officianados think of this guy's grooming?
    The last two are dogs in the ring--to watch and study their movement and gait.

    Thanks for these video's!

    Ironically I spent yesterday with a friend that shows Eng. Spring. Span. (ESS)., I was getting some "finer points" on that breed. I think the grooming is pretty similar, with specifics done according to the body type of the dog. It is good to see the details addresses in these videos.

    Boy, the blade on those thinners looks long...or is it just me? Also, it is nice to see someone else have trouble getting a dog to stay standing while you work on their tail!!

      I actually have the first nearly full coated Eng. Cocker today that I have had in some 8 or 9 years...so today is a special treat for me! I might post pics later--we'll see how much coat he has upon arrival and if he's been clipped to kingdom come!

        Man, that coat king one just looks like it hurts. That dogs skin is just slinging back and forth across his body. The dog looks beautiful, though. We hardly ever see them around here, they seem so much more mellow than most of the American CS we get in.

          This is exactly what I thought, too--that is why I asked what others thought of this guy. The dog was trying to scoot away and sit, too---but yes,,the dog did turn out beautifully, with that un-docked, tail, too!

            Do you think it's a results thing, or a time saver? I use a coat king with good results finish-wise, but never like that!! Then again, my dogs don't look quite that nice when they're done. Then again, they aren't show dogs, and I haven't had any complaints.

            Either way, I don't think I'll be doin'g that, or cutting near a dog's jugular at 1000 snips/minute. Guess I'll never be a show groomer.

            Thank you for always sharing tips and interesting techniques. It is much appreciated.

              I think "irock" (the guy who was grooming) was showing off a little for the camera! lol! I use Coat kings, too--for the finish,,and I am fast with them,,but not in a gooring and filletting or slicing manner!

                WOW

                I watched the video and it made me nervous when I saw him trimming up the ears and throat area. I don't think I would ever try that . I would be to nervous about slicing and ear, or throat. Beautiful groom!
