Lindsey starts off by setting the basic lines of the head and throat with clippers. Next, she shows you how to hand-strip this type of back-coat. She shares some of her favorite tools to get the job done. Once the hand-stripping process is complete, she moves on to clipper work which includes setting the angulation of the rear assembly. Once the clipper work is complete, she grabs her shears and blenders. She finishes the groom by showing you how to get the classic brick shape on the head of this gorgeous Giant Schnauzer.
This is a great lesson for both beginner and advanced pet stylists. Much of what Lindsey shares crosses all three varieties of the Schnauzers with a few exceptions. This is a very powerful and robust dog. Even though the Giant Schnauzer is a large and powerful breed, it’s important to maintain the elegance. Lindsay does a great job showing you exactly how to do that in this Learn2GroomDogs.com lesson.
