Now on the front leg, what we actually require is a nice tubular shape leg that blends in quite well. So we’ll just flip these up to get some body into the coat and now we can actually start blending in. Gently with a straight comb, just pull the ends of the coat down and comb it almost the shape that you require. They can see of the suit there is far too much coat there and we have to blend this in quite mostly through there to get a nice tubular shape.
Make sure your dog is standing nice and square and with your scissors you can gently take the tips down as you can as you can see that shaving up quite nicely. Well with the foot, you want to have a nice rounded foot, he’s supposed to have a nice, tight feet, so he doesn’t need lot of hair around. Do with out comb, you push down to the bottom, just gently trim round down to this foot. Left him up to make sure what you got. If it is clear, every time the dog moves, he tends to say a little something at least to come off.
If you need to lift the other leg up, just stop and keep moving his foot. And you got four legs, he could only stand on—I'm giving him a three. Take and continue to trim around the foot and blending in here. Okay as you ca see there that looks a nice chivalrous shape from that angle you can see the leg runs nicely straight and that’s front here look nice and straight, we got to trim this in a moment. But also, more importantly from the front, his shoulders look nice and clean there. If he was coming towards you and you were judging and his hair was all sticking out here it makes him very large in front. So the tighter you can go in there to his natural front, then the better he’s going to look as he moves towards you.
Okay we’ll leave on to back leg now, let’s clear the deck, now we’ll move on to the back leg. Now obviously this is one of the most important legs that were gone to work on now, because we need to show very angulation. Okay as we’ve already explained towards you. The half finish is here, so we want to kick this hair up, we don’t see at the moment that far too much there. The way I care about this is to start of with. I trimmed around the foot. To give me a guideline of where I want to trim, so push the head down and with the straight edge scissors, trim around the foot. The best way I found for trimming legs is to get your self in a position where you feel most comfortable. If your uncomfortable with your trimming and your not going to trim off properly. Remember its only a dog and you can move him around to make it more comfortable with your self.
Alright we trim down the foot giving that a nice and neat edge. The way I find the useful cut a little bit to start it is to left the leg up. If you bend the leg forward you can actually see the curve that you want to pull out. Now if you see this point here, that is the shortest point because I just trimmed around his foot. Okay so we want to follow the line and now he’s getting a bit tired and saggy. Okay, now I'm going to trim around to give a nice bend of start for here. And don’t just stop at this point here because I’m going to blend in the underline the bit later on. So within the shortest part we have already cut round the foot, just gently follow the line around. I'm going to stop there because I’m going to blend that in a minute. Okay, now what were going to do is were going to clean the inside of the leg at the back. As you can see that a lot of static in here, so just a little bit of speck goes along way. Now we just need to clean the back leg here, just to blend it in. So we just gently trim down, blending into the line that we cut round the base of the foot earlier on. So don’t go too mad and take too much to start with because you can always go back and take a little bit more of.
Okay you can see that the area is there blending up, so we just want to lift those off of. I can’t see what I'm doing around this side. I’m trying to show you but I can’t actually see a little bit well. I have to keep adjusting him around so I can see how much needs to come off. As you can see, that is already starting to look a bit better. You all know dogs. You all know how they move so you will need to trim them accordingly to how they move. Okay as I've said to you earlier, we’re going to flip this after a little bit so we got a nice re angulation. All the time leave around the dog just to check to see what is happening.
