Award winning pet stylist, Tracy Duncan shows you how to set in the shoulder area of a clipped Airedale Terrier to accentuate the structure of the dog. Long legged terriers like the Airedale are all about the muscle. In this Mini Lesson, Tracy demonstrates technique using multiple blade lengths and thinning shears to get the correct look for the breed.
