Show dogs are a great deal of fun. Besides brushes and scissors a number of other products are necessary. Shampoos and conditioners are probably the most important items to groom your show dog. First of all bathe your dog. Once bathed use a high quality blow dryer. Bone dry hair is your goal. Prior to grooming be sure you dog’s nails are trimmed.

Grooming your dog with high quality scissors is important. Above all take your time when using your scissors. Cut once to avoid going back to fix an area with a problem. Use both thinning shears and straight cut shears.

Another tool necessary are clippers. Clippers are use to shave the dog’s neck and ears in some breeds.
