Cocker Spaniel Puppies./ grooming advice needed
My Mom just got two cockers. They are 12 wks. The male has a very thick full curly coat. The female have a wavy to straight coat of normal thickness, though she has a very pointy occiput where the male has a nice rounded skull. I have never hand stripped a cocker and my Mom said I may handstrip her dogs as long as it didn't hurt, which I assured her it wouldn't. I have honustly no clue where to start though as I have only really stripped out terriers. Any and all help and suggestions would be appreciated. I am also going for my grooming certification through ISCC and was considering using one of the pups. Would it be a good idea to do a handstrip for my technical or better to play it safe and just do a pet trim? Thanks!
