Dudley: Australian Shepherd/Akita Mix. Not all of the work I do with heavily-coated dogs requires trimming. Dudley's coat is washed, conditioned and polished with a dirt-repellant finishing spray before nearly every piece of shedding coat is removed with a flurry of brushes, combs, undercoat rakes, the velocity dryer, and lastly, the "Furminator" tool. See that fluffy, black, cloud-like puff in the bottom left corner? That's a portion of the FULL grocery bag of dead coat that Dudley won't be shedding on his family's furniture or clothing anymore! He's absolutely gorgeous!
