Paragon Pet Grooming Mentor Monday Minute featuring Brandy Mays
Brandy Mays, a Paragon mentor, shares that her favorite breed to groom is the West Highland White Terrier. Her helpful tip for grooming Westies is to remove the undercoat and dead hair before bathing them, which helps to achieve a smoother and neater clipper work finish.
- What is your favorite breed to groom and one helpful tip.
- Hi, everyone. I'm Paragon mentor, Brandy Mays and I'm here today with Trixie. Trixie is my favorite breed to groom. She is a west highland white terrier. These are such great fun little dogs. They're so spunky and full of themselves and I just really enjoy having them on my table. Um If I could give you one tip to make your pattern work look better on your Westies would be before the bath when they're still dirty, take a, a rake, whatever your preferred tool is for carding the coat and go ahead and muck out all of that undercoat. And all of the dead hair. If you do this before the bath, you will find that after the bath when you're doing all of your clipper work that you're not gonna see all the lines in the coat that everything's just gonna clip a lot smoother and just kind of come together in a lot of prettier way. You will also find as these dogs get older, particularly the females. That they, they tend to produce a lot more undercoat. So the more that you can do to, to pull out all this dead soft hair, the better that the groom is going to look and the easier it will be for you to get a nice finish where you don't have to go back with your thinners and constantly touch everything up. So that is a tip today. I hope that it makes grooming Westies a little bit easier for you. Have a good day guys. Thanks.
