LOL,thanks Janet !.......but really,yes ,i did all that with the croc blenders.I just groomed him again last week ,and i did use a s/s comb first,then blended ,and yuk,it didnt come out nearly as well .....worth the effort to do it from scratch. I always wash/HV dry the whole lot first,then do any clipper work,then go to work with the blenders.

**tammy tip ** on dogs with heavy feathers that you know are coming off quite short.....after the bath while they are dripping wet,take your crappy old shears and whack the feathers down while they are really wet and sort of smooth them into place ,then cut 'em off. Then when you have the dog dry,it takes only seconds to comb through what is left and even it out.Works great on spaniels/setters/goldens etc.......when the dog is wet you can easily see the outline of the dogs body,and figure a balanced placement for the short feather trim.....

ooh, I have two Irish setters next week.. this guy has been so patient with me, actually he's just easygoing... the first time I groomed them, I hacked off all the but hair... I couldn't tell from NFTGT pic.. Embarassed

He never said anything, I said some ting to him next time he called and he said, oh, I know but we're not fussy... It's all grown back now..but I just wanna get these two done the right way..

Hmmm...
Do you go "up" into the bulk or "down" with the hair?

as a rule "down" with the lay of the coat.only time i go against is blend areas like the change of coat direction on the neck ,and i may use my little roseline thinners to bulk out a little bit on the blend line of the feathers

personally i wouldnt recommend those Geib blenders for bulk thinning.

You might want to use a coat king on the saddle to smooth things a bit once your done with the blenders.I dont think i did on this particular occaision

Since someone brought it up WHY are the feet shaved so darn short???? It's not like springers have a ton of hair on their feet to begin with, what is the owners reason?

you got it half right Janet....no mud ,KILLER grass seeds is dead right (scuse the pun) ......unless you experience the nasty little things first hand ,you've no idea the havoc they cause.
Nearly every dog i groom from Sept to April has some kind of grass seed problem.Usually stuck in the flesh between toes ,and under feet,armpits and necks,but on occaison,the dogs chew them out of the coat ,get stuck in gums ,and cause massive facial abcess,they get into ears and cause alot of pain & drama,i have known dogs to get them in the vulva and penis,up the nose ,you name it! dogs die every year from the horror of our 'grass seeds' ....shaving the feet is still no guarantee you wont get feet full of abscess,but it sure makes it easier to check for them.Spaniel/setter/golden Ret & collie type feet tend to be most prone,but i had a mastiff mix with short coat spring a major foot abscess on me once
