For a more professional look, try using finger and thumb to pull the coat out rather than using scissors or clippers. Often called the "Coronation Street" trim, sit the dog on your lap and let them settle. Once all is calm lay the dog down on its side and gently pull the coat starting just behind the shoulder, working down the side of the dog. Do this for 30 minutes whilst watching your favourite soap. You will be surprised just how much coat you will remove in just a week!
