Grooming the Pet Afghan in a Low Maintenance Trim

Maintaining the long, silky coat of an Afghan can be daunting.  Ms. Beckwith is a long time Afghan breeder and handler of AKC champions.  In this session, she outlines the breed standard while talking about their personality.  Debbie also shares typical coat changes you'll find as a dog ages or if it's been altered.  She'll demonstrate a trim she does on a regular basis to keep the coat easy to care for while retaining the flair all Afghans seem to have.  She'll show you which blades to select to shorten the long furnishings and how to work with them.  She also discusses the 'saddle' of this breed and how to retain it with hand stripping techniques.
