Well I decided to put Buoy in a modified conti today to see his cute butt!
He's got the greatest hair to form and style. His black pigment really sets him off. Maybe I'll grow out his hair to make wiggies for Bindi.

Oh ok...how do you get them used to it? I read somewhere else that you use baby powder on white dogs to soothe the skin after shaving? Is that right? I have groomed him the whole time ive had him but nothing as extravegant as that...maybe i should grow him out and take him to a groomers that specializes in that. Is that what you would recommend?

Constant shaving. Start with 15 and then go down to 30 and then to 40. Some dogs are more sensitive then others so you may never get past a 15. Most I have had tolerate it, only one has extra sensitive skin. Never use a hot blade either. Start with it on the face and tail, you'll be able to see right away and especially the next day if they show signs of pink or razor burn. I actually do their feet with a 50. It has less tendency to catch and cut their feet. For the colored dogs I use Jerob Stardust Grooming Powder.

Keep neosporin on hand for the little cuts that may occur. I don't know if most groomers have ever done a Continental clip but you can ask around. You'll have to brush and comb out all the way from the skin religiously to ensure that the coat grows and doesn't mat.
