Hi this is Sammi at the Animal Care Center in West Bountiful, Utah. I'm here to talk to you about how to groom Schnauzers. We've got Abby and Ethel here to help us demonstrate. Everything about this breed should be very tailored, and when finished cutting, all pattern lines should be very visible when finished grooming. The head on them should be very strong and rectangular. You'll want to leave the beard long and square, and for the eyebrows they have long arched triangles. For the ears, you'll want to shave them with a number 10 blade on the outside of the ears. And for the inside, you'll use a number 40 blade. Make sure to pluck their ears. For the skirt, you'll want to leave the legs parallel to the chest. The skirt is hand scissored. You can scissor it to whatever desired length you would like. They have round feet. Use the back thighs to set the pattern for the skirt. The skirt should raise slightly up into the tuck up area of the dog.
