Award winning creative pet stylist, Lori Craig, absolutely loves color. She loves creative styling. Her idea of a productive day is gauged by how much color she had on herself at the end of a day! And the best part – she loves to share her ideas with others.
In this Learn2GroomDogs lesson, she shows you an easy way to have some fun with color. It’s a simple design that can go on in a flash. The pattern works well on any short coated dog. And the best part – if you want to remove it – you can!
In this lesson Lori uses her show Standard Poodle. This creative option works well for Pandora. Lori can ‘bling her up’ between dog shows. When she gets ready to head to an AKC conformation dog show, she can simply shave off the dots. The colored polka dots were placed in the short clipped areas. Lori calls this design on Pandora, Poodle-Pox after all the polka dots!
