I like to use a professional dryer like this, it’s much faster. You can of course use a hand hair drier which I believed designed that dog make a fixture and I’m fixture to hold it in position before you otherwise you have to get someone to hold the hand hair drier for you.
Okay, I like to use this kind of brush, one with bubbles on the end, a paint brush. It’s partly coat nicely and dried thoroughly. I normally start the back of the dog. Just gently let the brush go through the coat, you don’t need to pull or anything. The drier will straighten most of the hair. Keep holding the dog all the time. I’m actually holding him with my thumb and my index finger here just by the tail. If you come across slightly tangled hair, groom it from the bottom and work him way up. Brush it down because otherwise you cannot make any coat very—
The trick is you’re getting the drier at the right angle with the hair. We would always want to brush the coat straight down to the ground because we want the coat to end up looking quite straight. Okay, front legs here, behind the neck here and make sure the coat is thoroughly dry before you finish because if you crack at a coat for a show and you haven’t dried it properly, it will be much more difficult to get the cracker lines out to the coat on the day of the show.
We normally bath the dog at the morning of the show or the night before depending on where the show isn’t how far we have to travel. And if the dog ends up going on a two-day show where it’s one of the hot seats best of breed in his group we would bath the dog again ready for the second time to be shown. You wanted the drier pointed into the dog sides so as you can see I’ve got my fingers over his eyes so that I’m worrying by the blow of the drier.
Some people like to do this with the pure bristle brush but I find that doing it with the paint brush if you got a full coaty dog like this, it does actually penetrate the hair better and part the hair and dry it straight. I’ll finish him off with a pure bristle brush. You also take quite a long a time to bath and dry so give yourself plenty of time. Just making sure that I’ve dried everywhere, make sure it’s fully dry—alright that’s him dried and now ready for grooming.
