Honestly? If I only had one dog, I'd use a groomer! I have bought so many different products to groom...still trying to find the right one...and I have to admit to nipping skin on occassion! (And I went to beauty school!)
And, I'll never be good enough to show them off! LOL
But, if you insist, www.idog.biz
has a download button with grooming instructions which might help.
I just put together a fancy grooming table...complete with a loop to hold them up. That's my toughest challenge, getting them to stand up!
Also...when clipping near their mouth...be soooo careful...they lick and you could snip right then...oooooh, it can be tricky!
Tools I find invaluable though:
Good sissors (from a beauty supply...expensive ones)
grooming brush, I do use Les Pooches, but it costs a lot and unless you have a lot of matting or a Poodly coat, it isn't necessary. I actually like the rakes.
I most always clip with sissors, even though I have clippers. Our dogs have thick, Poodly coats and most dog grooming tools won't make it through one dog!
If you use clippers (electric) get the cooling spray or dip because the clippers get hot. Also, use the kind with clip on combs to keep from getting the cut too short.
Watch out using just the main clippers...I knew someone who cut off a nipple! Really...UGH!
