Could someone please explain how to do a continental?

I just need to know how to figure out where the jacket ends, and how to place to rosettes.

His hair is about 2-3" long, and he's just a pet, so it's just something fun to do, but I can't figure out by pictures if there's a quick way to figuring how to place things.

Thanks!

The line where the jacket ends is generally somewhere between the last rib and the hips... Generally it's right up close to the last rib, but it depends on the length of the loin as to how short or long you want it to be; you want it balanced in the middle of the dog so one end doesn't look heavier than the other!

Where the rosettes are placed varies on where the jacket ends. In theory they should be placed over the hips... The gap between rosettes and jacket is generally pretty tiny, and the gap on the top between the two rosettes is small too (less than an inch?) but for size and placement you're best to look at lots and lots of pics and see what looks best; some are tiny and look stupid, others are massive and also look stupid! lol!
