2. Keeping the hair on the ears long often leads to ear infections as they cannot aerate. Keeping too much hair on the sides of the face and also ruin a good earset as it pushes the ears away from the head.
3. There should be minimal hair on the rear and back of the tail for hygenic reasons.
5. Wheatens can sunburn. Their coat is their protection from the direct sun keeping them cooler in summer (and warmer in winter). Please do not allow your wheaten's coat to be shaved on the back for this reason.
5. Lastly, the breed standard for grooming a wheaten has never shown a puppy cut. You can keep the hair shorter, but within the proper framwork.
An appointment is required as your dog will be the only one being groomed. You therefore do not have to worry about parasites, fleas, etc. from other animals. No ther dogs will be sharing the room your dog is in. Nor will your dog ever be left unattended on the table.
Your dog will be washed with breed appropriate shampoos and conditioners rather than "products on hand".
Once washed, your wheaten will be blown dry in sections to prevent matting, not caged with an aimed dryer.
Your wheaten will be groomed with thinning shears, not just clipper and scissors.
And best yet, he will look like the breed standard when completed.
Please call 847-438-4688 for an appointment. At present I have openings for 8 more precious dogs.
