This is Maddie, a sheltie that I have not seen since December who came in today for her "camper cut". Her Mom takes her camping and through brush a lot so she needs something manageable so Maddie doesn't turn into a mobile garden of weeds. They like me to leave as much of her ruff as possible. She is clipped with a #A snap-on comb.

Excellent job, thistle. It's always cool to see the colors come out on them when they get a haircut.

Once again, I`m in awe - gorgeous job, Thistle. Did you have to do alot of scissoring after passing your clip-on, cuz it looks awful smooth and velvety!! Also, I was wondering if you use the clipper vac -I`ve heard its easier to pass the clip-ons with these type of coats when used with the clipper vac systems.

I wish I had a clipper vac! There was a moderate amount of scissoring...not too bad though, I scissored the front legs, tidied up the back, around the ruff, and just a bit on the body to remove some lines. Oh, and the tail was scissored so it doesn't drag the ground.
I have no problem getting through this type of coat with a snap-on...the key is to get that undercoat out. I first chunk out the bulk of it, then bathe(one of my new trainees bathed her and did a great job!) and remove undercoat...I also use an Andis super2 speed on high speed with a 40 blade under the comb. I think that really helps plow through dense coats.

I have an overweight sheltie with oodles of hair that may look good with this. I have been tempted as I use the comb on the chest and butt. Thanks for posting the picture. Maybe I will try it. I'm just worried as the dog is obese and might not look right.

This is gorgeous Thistle! Are you coming out here this summer? I'd love to have you show me how you shorten and blend, you are a master! I'm gonna try this on little Dorie if her "mom" will let me, I'll practice on her and discount her monthly groom a little til I get it right. Thanks again for posting your pics.

I don't know if I can make it or not. It would be a very difficult task for me. I am hoping that my two trainees are coming along well enough for me to take a full week off. That would give me a whole 9 days off. Plenty of time to drive myself and a weirdo JRT over there and back. I checked with Yahoo maps and from where I am, it's a 20 hour drive. Of course, I'd have to rent a car, my own would never make it....I wonder how much campers are to rent?
I am trying to convince myself that this is do-able, but I can't really get myself excited enough to think that it's a given.

Thistle, I saw Dorie's mom at the grocery tonight and told her about your "camper cut" and she's game. Doing her next week, now what size comb did you use and (now I'm really gonna show my ignorance) do you use the comb with or against the hair? Dorie is a tiny shelty but got a nice plush coat and her head and rough is about the same profile as this dog. She's a tri and I really don't know what her tuckup is gonna look like but I'll never know if I don't try and I want to someday be in the "grovel at your feet" group too! LOL!
Try to get excited about the Ride! We won't have as much fun without'cha. Sunny looks VERY responsible!

On this particular sheltie, I used a Laube comb sized "A" against the lay of the hair.

As for the Ride, it's not Sunny I'm worried about. The shop is open 7 days a week...I know she can take care of herself and the shop, but it's her days off, Tues, Wed that have me worried.
If you had asked me if I was coming last week, I would've said an absolute "no" because there would be no one to cover for me. But now I have two very promising trainees, so maybe...just maybe...
another stumbling block is going to be the financial end of it. I've been looking at the costs and it may be beyond my means. I'm supporting myself here in a very high income area and my budget is very limited.
So, I am puttin good thoughts towards this happening, and I'm going to try to squirrell every spare penny away.

Well, Here's to you stuffing those little cheek pouches and hidey holes FULL to the brim! I just saw something on TV Orbitz has a fare search engine where you tell them where & when and they notify you of the lowest fare. I really think if you could get one for 250ish that would be the cheapest way and girl if you get here, we'll get you a place to sleep, -...if you're not too picky, LOL!

Me? I call it a modified lion cut or a stylized lion cut. Have used it on shelties and poms for years, with variations.

There is no standard name for this trim...I just simply call it a camper cut when I attatch a name to it at all. I usually just refer to it as a snap-on trim, leave the ruff.
