Award-winning pet stylist Misty Fowler shows you how to do an adorable pet trim on A Yorkshire Terrier. This little drop-coated dog is growing out from a #7 all trim. Some areas do not have a lot of hair that needs to be removed. Yet with some strategic trimming, Misty is able to shorten the coat to a very manageable length. Her goal is to keep it looking very natural; no scissor marks whatsoever. She does it totally by hand using thinning shears.
One of the unique characteristics of this Yorkie is the fact he has only one eye. Misty shows you how to camouflage the missing eye while still giving a very appealing head style that matches the body.
Misty is a Poodle groomer through and through. But what she loves about this haircut is; it doesn’t have to be perfect like on a poodle. The goal with this trim is to keep it looking very natural. Misty does a great job showing you how to do that while leaving about 2 inches of coat over the entire body.
In this video you will learn:
• How to set the length for a consistent trim.
• How to minimize tracking and marking the coat.
• How to establish the length of the leg coat.
• The challenges working with this type of drop the dog.
• How to camouflage a missing eye and still have an appealing expression.
