I was introduced to a chunker by Miyuki. It is a special type of scissor that results in a ridged finish. I'll look to see if I have a close-up of the finish on Karat. She has been professionally (handler) prepared for every show even when I take her into the ring.

Two thoughts, Outwest.

One - only ever post/bring your guy out looking his best. This is generally my philosophy, however, I do have color, already a leg down and quite easy to notice. I broke my rule and carried a yellow yak (an untrimmed Lombardi) to Eukenuba. Amazingly enough (sarcasm) MOST people, even those who should be able to see, often can not see through a shaggy coat. Lombardi has already made his mark, so I was comfortable enough breaking my rule. I would have NEVER with a pup/dog I was still working for a title though. I could be a tiny bit obsessive though

Two - he's black and he's a puppy. You won't exactly have the standing out like a sore thumb issue.

So....

Take him. Watch the show.

Pick your favorite presentation and see if that handler has time to do a puppy trim on Jazz. Then, once the lines are set, keep up the grooming. It's a great way to learn pattern. He will need a "real" groom prior to actually showing, but for now, enjoy and learn.

Basically, but bigger and with fewer teeth. They leave a lovely, smooth, velvety finish and blend out any chop marks. For puppy coats, they are lifesavers. I use them on almost every single dog I groom...they make things so much easier!

Yah, Nola. I thought the same thing. I don't think I should take him to an AKC show even brushed and clean without a proper trim. I kind of already decided that a couple hours ago. If I had a short haired breed where the hair didn't matter it would be one thing. The trainer's advice was good for most ALL breeds, but I have a poodle. Oh, and he is getting a proper trim pretty soon. I plan to take him to a show to watch for sure that weekend.

Where can I get a pair of Chunkers? Any recommendations on a cordless clipper?

This weekend is in Ventura and next weekend is in San Bernardino, neither of which he will have his trim. The next ones are in mid February to the end of Feb in Del Mar (The Silver Bay, yes). I figured those would be the first ones I could take him to properly attired.

PS Nola, Like you say, I realize I shouldn't post pictures of jazz looking less than perfect, but I do. Ah, well.
