First you need a bathed and blow dried victim...errr...dog. I usually shampoo twice, but before a clip it is especially important to have a really clean coat.


Andis clippers w/30 blade and the attachable comb I'll use. It is a 1 in comb and, because I clip Woo against the grain, it will cut a bit shorter. My shears can be seen in the grooming tools along with brushes.


I start with clipping the body. When you are using a blade, always clip WITH the grain of the hair. I am clipping the opposite way with this comb because Woo has such a fine coat that it leaves a nicer finish this way. If I am cutting without a comb and just a blade, unless I am doing a surgical clip I cut with the grain of the hair.

After the body, I clip underneath the chest and the lower sides of the body. On a tiny dog, I lift them up like this.


Jonathan's private area was already clipped with a 10 blade last week so I didn't do it. If I did, I would have laid him on his back in my lap. I'll do Mikey's this week and take pics.


I continue on clipping doing the shoulders and the front of the dog.




Overall roughed out body. Now I brush the dog and go back over him with scissors to even anything out.

I've done a little to the top of his head (scissoring off some bulk).


Now I start on the legs. My cheat is that I rough them out with a snap on comb. Use the next size up from the blade you clipped the body with.


Then I scissor the leg, starting with the foot. At the top, if I haven't cut the dog all one lenght, I use thinning shears to blend legs into body at the hips.


A leg roughed but not scissored.


I do the same on the front legs. Here is in the process.

Now I trim the face. I clip Woo in the corners of the eyes with a tiny Wahl pocket clipper (blue thing on table). One side is done there. I thin out the top of his head and trim around his face. I almost always do his face a different way just for fun. This time I did the top short and laying down with a longer beard.


And that's it.


Here he is after some rolling on the couch a few hours later.


Top down view.
