I have been trying to get another Before and After post together.
I have been trying, and trying, and trying.
I get before pictures and then the day gets busy and I forget, or don't have time to take the after pictures.
Or, I have a dog come in that I think would make a really spectacular before and after picture, and before I get a chance to take a picture, my son or daughter already has the dog in the tub, half bathed.
There goes my before picture......
So, I decided to try something different.
I will pick some of the dogs during the week to take pictures of from the beginning of the grooming to the end of their grooming.
How will I decide which dog will be the makeover dog?
It is going to be the dog that I managed to find the time to get all the pictures of.
The hardest part is getting pictures of my daughters dogs.
My daughter is like Mighty Mouse when it comes to grooming, and getting her to slow down for me to take a picture of her dog is like pulling teeth.
The girl never stops, and usually has five or more of her dogs done by noon.
So, here is my first Makeover Monday dog.
The Body Before.
The Head Before.
We start with a good bath.
The body was scrubbed with a mixture of Oat-Mella shampoo by Double K® and Bright White shampoo by Ring5®.
The face was washed with a mixture of Bright White shampoo by Ring5® and Odor Eliminator by Green Groom®.
I let him soak for a few minutes to let the Bright white shampoo do its job.
All clean and blow dried.
The owner wants half of the hair off the body, and around and over the eyes short.
I could run a purple clip comb over the dog and then scissor, but the hair on this dogs coat grows in all different directions.
Because of the hair growing in so many different directions, using the clip comb could cause an uneven cut.
So, I decided to hand scissor the dogs body and legs.
This gave me more control when cutting such a wavy coat.
The Back Leg After.
The Front Legs After.
The Side of the Face After.
The Ear After.
The Tail After.
A Back View After.
The Face After.
Well, that's it for the first Monday Makeover. :)
