Grooming the head


Recommended Posts

Well I worked on Sugar's head. She is not speaking to me anymore! Everytime I thought I was finished I found a hair sticking out......this is it after lots of fussing from her. She is not near as sweet as she looks especially when it comes to her face. Trying to get rid of the "billy goat chin" was the hardest! I know its not perfect but for my first real try with her I was pleased.

Too cute! She looks to be saying, "first my mom put me in clothes to pose me over and over for pictures, and NOW she pulls my hair out!" I think you did a great job! She is one precious looking puppy.

I dunno....I see a sweet, very nicely groomed angel in that picture. She looks like she wants to take a little nap to get her 45th wind back. Compared to her, Elliott looks like Bigfoot.

I think she looks adorable!

Scout has that "billy goat" look....how did you get rid of Sugars? I've used little clippers to take some of it off. Finch hasn't grown any at all....do some dogs have them and some not?

Sugar looks so sweet. Everytime I see a picture of her it makes me want a little girl Cairn to go along with Bear. Hopefully, sometime in the future. Next week, I'm taking my Bear to a lady who used to breed Cairns. She is going to help me groom him. I really want to learn how to do it. I think you did a great job. Sugar looks so cute.

MAKE it a GREAT day!!! :D

Sugar looks fantastic - good job!

I groomed my two Cairns heads yesterday, so I know how little they appreciate it. :D

Make sure you pull out the long hairs that are in front of Sugar's eyes when you have the chance, otherwise they can end up irritating the eye itself. I am really bad a keeping groom up on the head - but that's one area I do pay attention to regularly.

I cheat on the chin. I pull a bit of hair and use the thinning scissors on the rest, it looks just as good and saves me some time and my pooches some grief. I cheat the same way on the legs, which I personally find is the hardest area to groom.
