I was asked if we could do a grooming seminar at Nationals this year showing how to cut down a Maltese in full coat to a puppy cut. Since I know many of you are not interested in the breeder seminars that we usually put on, I'd like to know how many of you, who are planning on attending Nationals in Fort Worth, would attend a mini-seminar such as this? It is not set in stone whether or not we will have it, but I would like to get a feel for how many people would attend. :D

Well, now that you mention it, do you have any dogs you're bringing in full coat? LOL :w00t:

I would love to attend the seminar, i don't have any will subjects though. I would also love a seminar of how to properly groom and take care of a dog in coat, i think i'm not doing something right and possibly breaking alot of hair.

I'm planning on shaving Emma down right after Westminster - not sure I can handle keeping her in coat until April!!
Oh you big whiner (LOL. I am SOOO teasing you, Stacy!) It takes alot of time and energy, doesn't it. I have to say, I miss it though.. crazy, huh?

It's not crazy! If I didn't have Andrew here, I'd be more tempted but it's not even her coat really because i have her in oil so she doesn't mat a lot - it's her eating all of her face hair off that is making me :smpullhair::smpullhair::smilie_tischkante:

Hey, so far so good :) !! I just thought, those that have pet dogs, would be interested in it (and it would be nice to focus on something for "pet people" at the Nationals)... and those of us that have show dogs, cut down to pet dogs, but still want that cute factor, could use a lesson or two (or three or four LOL). I mean, how long do you keep them in coat, vs cut down? MOST of their life, once they finish, is being cut down, right! I'd love to keep all of mine in coat, I think they look beautiful, but reality is, a) I don't have time b) ) once you get past having one or two, cutting down is just makes more sense and c) the dogs really truly love having all of that hair gone.

I think also, it will help people save money. If you can do a groom yourself (and it is a cute groom) think of all of the money you would save!!!

Anyway, is nice to see that there are others that would like it as well. I hope it can be pulled off! Thank you Denise!!!!

Oh and a suggestion. It would be awesome if someone did a video. There is little out there of grooming for cut down etc. I am doing Lola now myself, the clippers are a lot easier than I expected, but I am having trouble with head legs and feet. I would bet you could get quite a few sales on SM. :)

I think it's a great idea and I would like to attend the seminar and will be at Nationals. If we're doing something on grooming, can we also include a segment on how to do proper top knots?

Because time is limited for this mini-seminar (if all the pieces fall into place) it would be kept to cute pet grooming (done by the groomer, probably on her dog) equiptment and techniques for a pet grooming. I wish it were all day, because there is so much to learn, but she'll have to stick to a pet cut grooming or it would go into midnight :) Sorry!

Yep, that is what I was hoping to accomplish with the idea, a way to help people cut down on their grooming bills! I know I save, doing my own 3 girls, but I know that the job I do, could very much be improved upon!!!

You're not off the hook Jackie. We'll still bug you, but having a live step by step grooming seminar would be wonderful. I have all of the equipment, but have been too nervous to try doing a full cut. Count me in for the seminar.
