Show trim, show style grooming, grooming to the recognised style for your breed they are all the same. This service is for all breeds, the pet dog who's owners would like their dog to resemble the breed which they own. For this service your dogs coat should be in reasonable condition example matt free, a few knots can be untangled but for a matted coat this service is not possible at the first appointment.
The Cocker Spaniel pictured below is an example of a show trim, the dog is not a show dog (he does not go to shows) , but resembles breed type and looks like a Cocker Spaniel.
Show Dog Presentation, completely different to the show trim service as above. This service is for show dogs, dogs which are shown in the ring at dog shows example, Crufts. It requires a lot of coat maintenance and hard work to have a dog looking its best for the show ring.
