Sammy is a long haired Shepherd, but his coat is still pretty short. I shaved his pads and trimmed the long hair that was growing out between his toes, used my thinning shears to just tidy the long tufts that were growing behind his shoulders, and tidied his pants ever so slightly. Sometimes people like the ear tassles long, but on Sammy since he is pretty short everywhere else I trimmed his ears back by plucking and using my thinning shears to give them a natural and more balanced look.
Sammy was a very good boy, his mom could hardly believe it, but it is true. Once they are in the hands of trained professionals and mom isn't there to play with anymore, almost without exception the dogs settle down, relax and enjoy the grooming.
Sammy was referred to me by Shelby's mom, so she will get 10% off her next grooming!
