FREE EXCERPT: Grooming a Show Rustic Coated Pumi - 3 minutes
Join Kendra Otto as she trims a show Pumi. This lesson was filmed on location in the Andis booth on the trade room floor at Intergroom 2012. As Kendra repeats over and over again, this is a rustic coated dog that should ‘messy’. Even though the goal is to get the look of an un-groomed dog, there is lots of styling going on. The breed is a well-muscled, square dog with a ‘whimsical’ expression. Kendra shows you how to style the dog to breed standard. She shares which tools she likes best to work on this coat type. The head is different from most breeds. In this video lesson, she clearly demonstrates how you should shape the head. Plus, she shows you how to trim this breed’s unique ear style. This is a fun lesson to watch. The breed is a rare breed to most salons and the exciting atmosphere of a busy trade show in definitely in the air.
