Michell knows the Australian Terrier well. It was a breed she perfected in the contest arena in the Unites States. ‘Polly’ is the dog she took to the 2011 World Team Competition in Belgium. Michell and Polly helped GroomTeam USA secure the silver medal by grooming this breed.

In this lesson, Michell shows you her winning ways when it comes to grooming and styling an Australian Terrier for pet or show. She is an excellent communicator. Her conversational style makes the lesson enjoyable and fun. She shares loads of great points on how to work with harsh coats to maintain the texture and color of the coat. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced pet stylist, there are plenty of great tips throughout this entire lesson.

Michell demonstrates grooming the head of the Australian Terrier along with final finishes to pull the entire look together.

In this video you will learn:

  • How to trim the ears
  • Unique characteristics to accentuate on the head
  • Where the junction point is between the jaw and the ruff
