Grooming a Labradoodle Like a Portuguese Water Dog Part 2
Here's a common question in grooming salons across the nation: what do you do with a Doodle? In this lesson, Amy Triezenberg demonstrates a great style that works on many Doodles - a Portuguese Water Dog in a working Retriever trim. Amy believes in saving time, so she blocks in the dog with guard combs prior to starting her scissor work. She carves the style in and adds detail using a combination of straight and curved shears plus blenders. Amy has exceptional scissor technique - mastering full control over even the longest scissor. The end result on this Doodle is a stylish trim that is easy to maintain.
