In the contest ring, Veronica Frosch is well known for her exquisite grooming skills on poodles and adorable mixed breeds. When it comes to drop coat styling, she loves that clean and crisp look – but never sharp. In this lesson, she demonstrates how to groom a pet Maltese in an adorable pet trim. She uses Wahl snap-on combs and oversized blenders for most of the haircut to get a super soft look. As Veronica says, ‘It’s all in the details’ when it comes to creating a high quality trim that owners will love. In this lesson, Veronica shares loads of those little details that make a big impact on this trim style.
