Grooming Day

Rain, Rain Stay Away
Jedi Has a Busy Day
We have a weekend of shows starting tomorrow. The weather looks bad and I need a few rain free hours to groom Jedi. Cross your fingers!
 
Getting to this:
 
 
Takes a lot of this:
 
 
For fun, I gathered up all our grooming stuff, piled it on the grooming table and took a picture. Want to know the routine?
 
Prebath:
(done in the living room)
  • Ears
  • Nails (clip and file)
  • Trim feet (hair between pads, around nails)
  • Teeth (brush, scrape if necessary)
  • Use rake to clear out undercoat
Bath:
(done on the table in the back yard)
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Volumizer
  • Zoom Groom is used to reach skin and remove loose hairs
Dry:
(dry on table, brush in the living room)
  • Towels
  • Forced air dryer
  • Use pin brush to remove loose hairs
Just before showing:
(done ringside)
  • Use pin brush to remove loose hairs
  • Spray bottle/mousse to fluff chest, tail and haunches
  • Spray conditioner (added shine)

It's Thoughtless Thursday. No thinking for us, just cleaning. I go into autopilot and spend most of the time talking to Jedi. Once things slow down I'm going to click around below to see what others are sharing. How about you? -- K

P.S. I wonder how much time it takes to groom white and fluffy Ruckus. Hmmm . . .
