IRISH SETTER DOG GROOMING EXAMPLES
GROOMING THE ENGLISH SETTER
CLIP OR SCISSOR
The 4 dogs below are all Show Champions and were all clipped then scissored the night before a show. A lot more work obviously went into the groom before that. But the basic groom is clip & scissor, that is how I groom English Setter’s.
I like the cut on the neck to be as short as possible without showing any skin.
If you would prefer a slightly longer cut on the neck just let me know I can easily do this.
My personal preference is a short cut to enhance a long clean elegant neck.
GROOMING THE ENGLISH SETTER PUPPY
A good age to start taking your new puppy to the groomers is from around 4 months of age. This just helps to get your pup used to all the new sounds which happen in the grooming room and being handled by a groomer.
The price for grooming English Setter puppies is from £30.
The price depends on the age of the puppy and the amount of coat.
The price includes the cut, a bath, blow dry and nails checked and clipped.
GROOMING THE NEUTERED ENGLISH SETTER
I have owned quite a few neutered English Setter bitches now.
Lucy Liu in the black & white photo was my introduction to the ‘spayed English Setter coat’ not through choice I will add.
Lucy had Endometriosis 4 days after her first litter at two and a half years old and there was no choice but to spay her. She lived until she was 13 years old.
Lucy had everything possible going you could do a neutered coat over the years. From the hair straighteners and Toni & guy hair straightening products for dog shows. To a complete shave off with nothing left at all, it soon grew back!. She was old and got too hot.
Don’t worry I won’t do this to your dog, it looked terrible the shave off but Lucy felt 100 times better for it.
If you own a neutered English Setter then the groom will be different to normal English Setter look.
Each dog is different but the coat usually goes thick and curly. The sides of the dog are usually worse for bushing out.
I am happy to clip your English Setter into a more manageable Setter cut. And I am also happy to try and do my best to just thin the coat out.
Either way your dog will still look like an English Setter once groomed.
You will also find that with a neutered Setter the coat will gradually get thicker and longer over the years.
Each dog is different.
Setter Groomers Near Me
I get a lot of enquiries from this page, for a variety of reasons but the main question usually asked is “do you know of a Setter Groomer closer to where I live, you are too far away”. I am always happy to pass on what information I can as not everyone wants to travel to Derbyshire to get their dog groomed. Being involved in the Dog Show world for over 30 years you meet a lot of people, including dog groomers.
So I have created a page SETTER GROOMERS NEAR ME, which is a page of dog groomers who specialise in The Setter breeds, like myself who either show, breed, own or have owned Setters before and are confident at grooming Setters, who may live closer to you.
