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.
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.
There are several ways to find a good groomer and one of the most obvious is to talk to other dog owners that you see as you are out and about with your pet. Dog owners in general tend to be very willing to give recommendations as well as warnings about good and bad experiences they may have had with groomers in your area. If you see a dog that looks just like you want your dog or has just the clip that you have pictured for your dog be sure to speak with the owner and find out what groomer they use.
