Now we’re going to dry and I’m going to use one of the stand dryers. If you can’t afford you can use something like the normal hair dryer will do.
The whole point when you’re drying is to make sure that you dry right down to the roots. This is why we tend to bath them a few days before the show mean this is the Wolf Sable and it has a great texture coat. Where some of the others it may take them a few days for the coat to actually recover that’s probably one of the reasons why you don’t put conditioner on this kind of coat because it would just go fluffy and sag. And that thing to from a bump and a lilt ball with fur, its harsh fur that stands away from the body. So other than making sure I got all the way down to the base I’ll dry it right down to the root. The tips are going to dry quickly. You’re standing right just making sure that it's dry and the skin is important.
And they got the name Pomeranian from an area in Germany called Pomerania and that’s where they actually supposedly originated. They are the smallest of the spitz breeds but it was in this country that they came to before because these breeds have royal patronage. Queen Victoria has a Pomeranian that used to sleep on her bed at night time.
But you can tell that it loves using the table, I’ve been to a few shows so he’s got no worries about it and it’s just because he’s been trained as a baby, being used to the table. So whether we stood up or sitting down it makes drying much easier. You can see the damp hair because it still got slight wave to it because of the water. That’s why it's so important again to get all the way down to that skin. But again, we don’t need to be harsh. We look into brush now. There’s not a lot of coat which is coming out to them. You can do shed the coat so when ready to go out of coat it's a good idea to buff them and get all the coats out. That way and when the new coat come in through, it’s nice clean-skinned and hopefully they should come back into coat quicker.
It’s no good whether they’re showing them or even if the pets leaving all their dirt on the coat and they don’t look right and it’s going to come out in the end anyway. So a good bath gets it all out. They may look half the size but it will soon come back and it should be and better than last time because as they get older their coats just get bigger and thicker.
And as you can see, I’ve always got hold of him. This is a small dainty little breed and I would never dream of leaving him on the table without my hand being on him. In that way you can avoid accidents. And to make sure the dryers is pointing at the area you wish to dry. It’s no good having the dryer pointing there when you brush him here.
Obviously be aware of your dog and make sure he’s not getting to hot. If you are using a hand dryer it might be easier if you get someone’s to actually hold it for you so that you got two hands free, one to handle your dog and the other to use the brush. We can still see some of the areas that are damp just by that faint wave in the coat. And then getting the tip once, if you think it’s dry, dry it again and this actually works with the few breeds with especially something like this way; you want to take it really hushed and really dry. When you bath to pump and if you just towel them dry it will probably take you about 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the dog and the coat. But usually with the blaster which tends to blow all the water out of the dog’s coat we can turn to get them done a little bit quicker.
So before when we’re shampooing it is important to shampoo behind the ears because probably it’s got little wrinkles around there. And people when they see them we sometimes put a little bit talcum to get some of the grease before they brush it all out.
Don’t forget the underside of the tail not just the top of the tail that needs to dried. Swap brushes around his head and his face, bristle brushes with a little bit softer and not as harsh. Don’t forget between the legs as well.
We’ve bath him, we’ve dried him. And this coat will need a couple of days to recover from being bathed before it is trimmed. As I said before because this one is a Wolf Sable, they tend to be blessed with the best texture of coat. When I do it sometimes I actually get a hold of the palmers coat and push it through and you can actually hear it crackle. And that is the sound with a really good harsh textured coat. So we need to say thank you to Toby here, our little model for letting me bath him and dry him.
