Grooming the Kerry Blue Terrier

FREE EXCERPT: Grooming the Kerry Blue Terrier - 54 minutes

Karen sums up Terriers like this: ‘Terriers are all about angles – striking angles. They are not round like a Poodle or a Bichon.’ The Kerry Blue Terrier is a showcase of angles. She’ll explain key points of the breed to help you visualize what it should look like. Karen does a fabulous job giving the viewer reference points as landmarks to establish the correct outline for the breed.

Watch as she shows how to shape the coat with clippers, guard combs, shears, and blenders. Many stylists love grooming Terriers because they are extremely tailored. There is a lot you can do ‘right’ for a dog and a lot you can do ‘wrong.’ After watching this lesson, you will feel confident grooming a Kerry Blue Terrier, even if you have never groomed one before!

In this video you will learn:

  • What shape to go for on the head
  • Which blade options to use when setting the pattern
  • How to set up the rear leg for nice parallel lines
  • How to set a deep chest that is balanced to the rest of the dog
  • Which shears to use when working on a difficult coat to scissor

Karen is available for private training. Please contact her for cost and availability. 407.830.6655
