  • Saving coat and saving face!

    This is a new client--an 8 month old little ShihTzu, who's Mom just got him and is learning to keep up on brushing, and HOW to do it. Whoever owned him before her, they let him get away with murder, because he is S-P-O-I-L-E-D. He bites the comb at the slightest tug, and has no "tug tolerance". I can't say I really blame him. So, this gal is literally crying because she wants to save his coat and not have him shaved for family photos, etc. I tell her I will do what I can- but no promises. So, here's a before, some in the middle, and a finished groom--he even got a cute, sassy little butt! No crying, no biting, and only took about 30 minutes to dematt him through the legs, rump, shoulders, chest and neck. Basically he was only not matted on the back and the top of his head. I did cheat and hollow out his inner thighs and gave him a false tummy and beard! I used DeTangle from ShowSeason before the bath (he was freshly bathed the day before by Mom),a hot oil treatment using Davis Cream Cond., and Crown Royal after the bath. His body, neck, and rear are an A comb, and the rest is all thinnered. I should also mention that they wanted his beard left long,,longer than to my taste, but he's still a cute little poop!

    That is pretty dramatic. You should be proud of it.

      Nice heiny. lol It's good to have a lot of shortcuts and tricks to brush out matted dogs. Very nice job! I saved a matted coat myself the other day. It's nice if it can be done.

            Thanks for posting this Windy. The title could have been "BeeJL - Read and take note" But how did you keep the little darling with low tug resistance from eating you?

                    He looks awesome! I scoop out alot of longer haired dogs on underbelly and between back legs when they come to me matted...just makes it a little easier to take care of for the client, doesn't it? (And us! )

                        Isn't it great when we can "save the day" for a client? I love that feeling! And the SS Detangle is wonderful. It has saved me from shaving more than a few dogs! He looks great and I'm sure they were thrilled. Maybe you'll get a copy of that family photo!

                          Good save! I've often thought the certifying organizations should make us groom 1 teenage shih pup who has never ben groomed,safely and nicely,or a pelted maltese,to groom neatly,and safely. Now that's what I call a test. I'll hand scissor a poodle anyday over those! LOL

                              Awesome as usual, I just love to see your makeovers they are the bomb.

                              Did you get the weird looking matts off his back leg using the thinners and les pooche brush?

                              Was he mostly little tiny matts?

                              Where do you order your show seasons from?
