Member Video: Grooming the Pet Miniature Schnauzer (Part 1 of 3-part Series) - 55 minutes
I’m not sure about your salon, but the Miniature Schnauzers we see in our shop are less than perfect. Does this statement hold true for you, too?
It’s so common to see less than ideal body structure on family pets walking through our salon doors. And what about that super soft fly-away coat? You know the coat texture… it’s almost impossible to work with! We don’t know a pet groomer that doesn’t battle this typical scenario on a weekly basis.
In this lesson, award-winning pet stylist Tracy Duncan guides you through the grooming process. The Miniature Schnauzer she is grooming is similar to what walks through your salon doors every day. It lacks muscle tone. Its conformation is less than perfect. This little dog has enjoyed a few too many cookies to boot. Its coat is soft, sparse, and full of static. Plus, another groomer has removed coat in areas that shouldn’t have been. So what do you do to make this dog look its best?
Join Tracy as she shows you her options when it comes to breed profile shop grooming on a less than perfect (but sweet) pet Schnauzer.
