Show Grooming A Golden How To?

Well now that you guys have been on the topic. I'm hooked! So how do you exactly "show groom" a Golden Retriever. What I do with Maddie is pet groom her. I do thin out her ear fluff because it gets to be a mess when I'm switching collars.

Some of you that are part of this forum show your dogs in Conformation. I would like to know more. I've only been exposed to pet grooming and nothign more.

Is there a website you recommend to me?

Thanks!

Altering???

Yes, I am very interested as well. I was reading and it said you can be disqualified for altering the way you dog appears??? What does that mean exactly how do you illegally alter the appearence???

i have tried posting threads about this...i surprisingly, didnt get many replies.

i also am curious about this, and also was curious what kind of coat shampoo, conditioner, products, etc. do you use, to get their coat looking like those beautiful show goldens?

no one seems to know......

i have only heard one thing about this...not sure if its true or not, but actually coloring the coat, to cover up white, or grey areas on the face..show dogs arent supposed to have any grey. also, i believe they have to have a black nose...?? some have pink noses. so i assume its things like that, that you cant try to "cover up"

I made a post somewhere about show grooming. it's not much different then regular grooming with Goldens.

Unlike most grooming, Goldens are one of the few breeds where you don't want to take a whole lot of fur off.

Pretty much just tidying up the ears, pants, skirt, flagging the tails and legs.

For a flatter coat, I've seen show people putting damp towels over their backs to keep the fur from curling up.

There's also lots of coat sprays to give extra shin and such.

Practice practice Got any friends or neighbors with a Golden pet?

Sabrina is getting hers soon. Last night I bathed her and did her front paws quickly and the tail bc that's so easy. She will get a proper grooming in a few days when she feels better.

Yeah could you imagine that??? By the way could I groom you dog I can't promise I would not butcher him.

I have heard and read lots of post saying how expensive it is to show dogs in the US. So with all the things included would some of you mind sharing what 1 weekend would cost. With grooming, handling, entries, expenses for the handler, etc. Also some people let the handler keep the dog for a month at a time right??? What would that normally cost with a resonably good handler with board and a few weekends of shows?? If you don't mind sharing??

The DVD that Deb Oster has is wonderful!

And you would be surprised at the amount of hair trimmed, clipped and combed out of a Golden in show coat! And all without leaving the dog looking "sculpted"! Of course, my line is known for having a ton of coat.
