When a client says "trim the dog like it's supposed to be trimmed' or "you know what you are doing". I will suggest the AKC breed trim for a purebred. This style is not for everyone, as the maintenance is often more intense than many pet grooming clients are comfortable with.
Breed Profile Trims are designed to make the purebred dog look like a show dog using modified techniques. These techniques are adjusted for the breed, such as hand stripped breeds will be clipped, or more hair will be removed for hygiene purposes making the style easier to live with and more comfortable for the dog.
Pet Trims are any number of freestyle Trims based on pet parent input, and a discussion of what you are looking to achieve. These easy to maintain styles are great for the busy, energetic pet.
They are suitable for purebred, mixed breed, and designer dogs alike.
Some clients prefer to take it all off, but for the dog to still look cute.
Touch ups are considered a full groom in my salon. You are in charge of choosing the style , take off as little or as much as you like.
I do not accept pets with matted hair hair. I am happy to help client learn to maintain the pets coat to properly prepare the pet for a hairstyle appointment.
