So from some very helpful suggestions, I got the Shirlee Kalstone book. It's wonderful! I've been reading it, and have gotten some great ideas for grooming. However, I'm still really intimidated by the idea of shaving my puppy's FFT. I am nervous trimming my own kids hair, in fact, I stopped doing it and take them to the kids' hair salon. Brushing, combing, even bathing I can do, but I'm intimidated by clippers/scissors. I'd really LIKE to learn, because over a lifetime, $45 for trims and baths at the groomer adds up, and frankly I am getting a steal at $45 because our breeder owns the grooming salon. Any good tips or DVDs I could watch?
