In our last training session, Misty showed you the finer points of hand scissoring on her retired contest Poodle, Sambuca. In this training session, she flips Sambuca around and shares with you how to ‘cheat’ off the coat on the other side with guard combs. This allows you to create the same trim with style and flair but without the same degree of difficulty as doing it all by hand scissoring – and in a lot less time.

In this video you will learn:

• How to duplicate a hand-scissored, competition style trim in a lot less time

• Setting the pattern based on anatomy and bone structure

• How to use a variety of guard combs to sculpt the coat

• How to trim the legs (including dealing with ‘hard to reach spots’
