I've taken to grooming Myleigh myself we're both learning so much and she is getting much much better with each session. She has a weird texture, soft but coarse, sort of wavy. She's a poodle/sheltie and leans more towards poodle hair than the double coat of a sheltie. I've been scouring grooming videos and I've been trying to learn the most I can before trying our next major grooming session.
I've been successfully doing FFT but I would like to attempt a sort of modified continental next. The trouble I'm having it grooming UP the leg and the stopping point between the clean leg and the point where the jacket begins. Does anyone have a good video or pictorial explanation of this?
I also don't know where to go with her current "top knot" I've decided to grow it and her ears out and she looks like a little boy with a bad bowl cut. I didn't touch it at all in our last grooming session. I don't know if I trimmed far enough up, do I trim it up with scissors? I know that I'm supposed to trim between her ears and the TK, but I'm terrified to mess it up, lol.
Here is a pic from Tuesday (I did her FFT the previous Sat)
