    maltese tricks

    I used to hate maltese and yorkies since I could never get the finish I wanted so desperately. I always dry as straight as possible, velocity then finish with stand dryer. Getting the wave out as much as possible is soooo important to me. Then if I can, I hand scissor colum legs. For me, the more length the easier to scissor. Either way I back comb then shake the leg, or bounce the dog, to get the hair to stand naturally before scissoring. If I just back comb it looks more choppy when it lays flat. I've had to learn when enough is enough, I'm pretty ocd so that was the hardest part for me. You can always put the dog up and get back out to fix the minor things I see after I've walked away for a min.
