More on grooming Scottish Terriers

This Scottie grooming article by Susan Morris of Stornoway Scottish Terriers in Washington State comes highly recommended. Not being a DIYer, I can’t really add that much, but if you do groom at home, please let Scottie News readers know what you think about the advice.

  1. I do groom at home and this article is a good place to get the general gist of grooming. For the pet groomer, the Texas Scottie Rescue has a pet grooming manual that goes through the process step by step. If you want more of a show coat, the STCA has a grooming manual.

    The best thing you can do for your Scottie is keep them clean and brushed out. Find some pictures of Scotties that you like and then try to trim or strip your Scottie to look like them.

    If you are showing your Scotties, then it's a different ballgame all together. You'll want to learn to groom yourself or find a show groomer.

  2. We don't groom at home (except for brushing & combing) but the diagrams in the article are similar to one which STECS (UK) sell but it's more detailed & shows right & wrong for various parts of the dog. It was issued as a visual aid to the book "Scottish Terrier Coats" by Mrs. Betty Penn Bull. A lot of American groomers seem to like to leave long tassels from their ears and bushy tails. We know another Scottie who goes to the same groomer as ours, she does our 2 as shown in the article but Sophie has bushy ears & tail! BTW I don't think I ever noticed a mention of the "Scottie & Westie wedding" on "Groomer Has It" from a little while ago(?) Don't know if you got it in Canada. Will see if any of it is avail. online if anyone is interested.
