Yorkshire terriers I actually use clipper with the tips of their ears, then with Trixie here has got dropped ears they're not correct for Yorkshire terriers but try and make it look very cute. I have some clippers here, they're actually pet clippers they're rechargeable. I think it cost about 30 pounds and they have one blade which is adjustable to short or long. They have snap that comes which you can use this to one of the body and leave a longer look and a short blade are use for the tips in the ears and for the backs of their pads. She doesn’t like the backs has been clippered out so I'm actually going to scissors those out. However, were go on and do the tips the ears now we want to take off just one third of the hair from the top of the hair. So we want the clipper nice and flat in the direction of the coat grows.
And I've got my finger behind my ear as the clipper comes out, here we go. That is a good girl and we’ll do the inside, there we go, we do both ears here. We got to scissors our body now unfortunately, none is a half a scissors on that and we cut her just a little bit too short. And were going to try not tidy this up because she is slightly shorter on the back end and she is up on the top end here and now with this method I've pulled the cone through the coat and hold the cone flat towards the body and bring the scissors along the cone. Now I have one setline the trick is to try to get to pull the coat away from the body and leave it at the same length.
So I set one line, come along and just to cut enough hair where trimmed already on the end of my cone, so I come up where I start scissor in. Now this has been the method that hairdressers use and but I find it, to get a nice and even finish on the coat that wont stand out for you. You can get quite a nice even finish. If I take, you down this side here and hold the pin downwards now. When it comes to scissoring most groomers aim for a nice plush velvet finish, underneath the box is an expert of this, here she shows you how. I'm just saying a little something about scissor work here, if you want to get really plush scissor work the way to do it is to keep your scissors on your work while your scissoring moving your thumb and just gradually moving it along. Taking and dusting the coat off really just taking all the little hairs out and that’s how you get really plush with the work and you can see just by literally taking the mind you do this little hairs and I'm hardly moving my hand over the work. This part of my arm remains absolutely still and I just slightly move in the wrist over the dog.
