Jodi has been well respected as an educator in the grooming industry for many years. She is one of the top pet stylists in the world winning multiple titles included World Grand Champion and Best American Groomer. She is here to share her knowledge in this extraordinary book.With over 190 breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club along with individual breed-specific grooming instructions, it can become very overwhelming for new groomers to retain the information. Straight to the Point is the solution to learning about pattern lines, which simplifies the learning process. Whether the patterns are set tight or left more natural, the patterns are set in the same fashion. Once a groomer understands basic patterns he or she will be able to groom any breed with ease.The dogs pictured in this book are top winning show dogs presenting the correct profile according to their breed standards. Jodi chose to illustrate this way for several reasons. First, a show dog presents an excellent representation of the breed and how it should be groomed per the breed standard. Second, the reader will be able to see the realistic depth and dimensions of the coat. Last, it will give the reader a vision of the pattern in a realistic view and will be a great reference source when grooming each breed.Once the groomer understands correct pattern placement, it can easily be applied to pet trims. A pet dog does not have to be groomed using show techniques, i.e., hand stripping, to present the proper breed profile. With proper pattern placement and techniques described in this text, the groomer will be able to present a well-balanced, well-blended pet trim to the pet owner.With proper pattern placement and techniques described in this text, the groomer will be able to present a well-balanced, well-blended pet trim to the pet owner.
