Learn How to Groom the Pet Italian Truffle Dog:
In this grooming lesson, Kendra shows you how to get the correct look for the breed. Much of the work is done in the coat preparation (see the video Maintaining a Rustic Coat by Kendra Otto). If a coat is correctly cared for, this trim is a snap. Kendra uses a snap-on-comb to set the length of the coat. Then tidies up the outline of the dog with a variety of thinning and blending shears. The end result is a thorough groom that still looks "messy" as the breed standard requires.
