Right now comes one of the most important parts of getting the dog to look absolutely finished. What we’re going to do is trim the feet first of all round in layers and then we’re going to do the top of the coat last. So, what I do so that you can actually work on the feet is clip. I use these butterfly clips just to clip the coat up. This is another reason why the coat has to be dry because you wouldn’t want to be doing that with a damp coat because you would end up with all sorts of marks. So, if you just clip up the hair so that you can see what it is that you're going to do. What I always do is make sure all of the hair is up that’s why I prefer to trim the pad underneath first. Make sure the foot is more or less where it would be when you're in a show stunts. And then you comb down the first layer of hair by making sure that it’s all lying more or less where it should be.
Now, the most important thing is to get the line up the front right. And what I use for that is I use a very slightly curved pair of scissors. They mustn’t be too curved because otherwise you'll go wrong. If you straight scissors, you'll find it much more difficult to get the line right. I do the front first and then work around the side. So, you have to be reasonably brave and it cut it across like that.
You can cut the first layer quite short which helps with the dog picking up any dampness from the grass, it wont get as wet. I'm not going to comb to the side just yet. Also, when you're doing it in layers like this, if you do make a slight mistake, the next layer you can rectify it. And once you’ve actually finished the whole leg, you won’t notice the mistake at the bottom, you know with the first level. He’s got slightly curly feet because we didn’t them 100%. So, you do have to be careful. One good tip is to actually rest the points of the scissors on the table while you're cutting and that way you shouldn’t do it too short and also steadies the scissors.
I'm going to do the front foot and then I'm going to do the whole top coat so we can let that go for a minute. Now, what I do quite often for the front feet because you’ve got more hair generally at the front here is I pin that piece up again, oh, it doesn’t want to go up. Let’s get this little piece up, let’s try again. I need to clip that up and what I do with the head furnishing is to keep them out of the way is I use a snood which I would use anyway for the dog when it was going to have something to eat., just to keep the ear and the face fringe is right out of the way.
Now, you don’t have to buy an expensive one, this is just the leg of a pair of tights. You just have to make sure that it’s not too tight. So, give it a bit of a stretch. And then all you need to do is put it over the dogs head. And then you can actually tuck the hair up under the snood to keep it out of the way a little bit while you're trimming. This front piece here doesn’t want to stay up properly. You must make sure the legs are exactly as you would want them when you were standing him. And I'm going to use the other clip just to hold this front piece out of the way.
Again, you need to hold the most of the hair up with your hand, you can see that his hair actually is in sort of its not very evenly cut around at the moment but we will soon rectify that. The straighter the coat it is easier to cut but you can also see of you go wrong more easily. So, don’t worry too much if you have a slight curliness of the feet. What I'm going to do is just take a little tiny bit off there and instead of having this pointy bit at the back, just take a little bit off, turn him around so you can see, just for that first layer. This is actually a very oddly shaped foot Nathan.
