Many groomers have affiliations with various breeders and organizations. A good, professional groomer will also assist you in selecting a clip or cut that is suitable for your dog and is appropriate for the show ring if this is a consideration. If the groomer is unfamiliar with the show requirements be sure to bring in exact pictures of what is allowable and what is not to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding regarding a cut or clip.
Do not over-dry your shelties coat. While the topcoat is still slightly damp, stop drying and go through the undercoat once more, this time with a slicker brush. When the undercoat has stopped loosening when you brush it, start brushing out the silky top coat, using a pin brush. Again, start with the neck and work your way to the tail. Finish by going through the length of both coats with a fine tooth comb. The comb should move easily, though more so through the top coat that in the wooly undercoat.
When drying, lift the coat in the area youre drying and work the undercoat with a rake. Start at the head and work toward the tail. Dry and rake from the skin outward. Pay special attention to the hindquarters and the bum where the undercoat is especially thick. Do not rake your shelties belly or abdomen. Just dry lightly and go over those areas gently with a pin brush.
