Multitude of Coat Types

The category for pure breeds with a multitude of coat types is perfect for beginners to start certification because the breeds in this category are typically assigned to students in school or a novice in a salon. Individuals with a good understanding of the breed standard with good technical skills and knowledge of the proper products can complete the required pure breed trims in this class category and receive excellent scores and ratings.

Breeds with the short, smooth, medium smooth, medium long, rough, Nordic and Nordic rough coat types are in this coat type category. They exhibit natural coat growth patterns on the head, ear, neck, chest, body, rear, legs, feet and tail. Some of the breeds require a slight tidy to capture the ultimate expression and profile while other breeds require daily and weekly maintenance to prevent the coat from matting and breaking.

NOTE: For the purpose of certification, breeds in this category with long and flowing coat types can be used to create other pure breed trim styles. Competitors would enter in the Free Style Class.

Pet Trim Style Division or Show Trim Style Division 
You can complete your certification in the Pet Trim Style Division or the Show Trim Style Division. The Choice is Yours! 

Pet Trim Division Definition 
Pet trim styles are the type of trims requested in a pet grooming salon. For example, a Maltese with a clippered head, body, legs, feet and tail or a Pomeranian in a lion trim. 

Technical Skills: The Pet Trim Style Division allows for all technical skills to be applied to the various coat types. Wire coat types may be hanstripped, carded, clippered, thinned and scissored. 

Show Trim Definition 
Show trim styles are the required trims for pure breeds in the conformation ring. For example, a Maltese in a long and flowing coat or a Pomeranian in full coat. 

Technical Skills: The Show Trim Division requires the proper technical skills for the coat type. Wire coat types are handstripped and carded and curly coat types scissored and thinned. 

Certify by the Breed or Coat Type Category
