How Do Dog Groomers Groom Your Pets?

Having a first trip to the dog groomer with your furry bundle (or bundles) of joy? We tell you, it will be a lot of fun as your darling will receive special treatment/s from the professionals. But more than the treatment, it’s always nice to have your pet get proper grooming for aesthetic and hygienic purposes. It will bring her/him happiness and also good health.  Now there is called a Mobile Dog Grooming Chandler convenient for dog owners who are busy to send their dogs on the grooming. 


Dog grooming is basically divided into three (3) sections- head; body; and feet. Each of them has specific terminologies for specific breeds. You got that right- each breed has a unique grooming treatment. You and your dog usually receive consultation prior to the grooming session, but it would be nice if you’ll have an initial knowledge of the possible treatment s/he’ll get. Let’s get to know twelve (12) common grooming terms for your furry mates.


Head Terminologies

Clean Face- refers to shaving the face very close to skin; usual recipients of this  

grooming is poodles.  

Teddy Bear Head- refers to shaping her/his face round; usual recipients are shih-tzus and  

other lap dogs.

Tipped Ears- refers to making the part of her/his ears sharp and pointy; usual recipients  

of tipped ears are west highland white terriers (westies) and Yorkshire terriers (yorkies).   

Topknot- refers to creating pigtails or ponytails on top of the dogs’ head. It has to  

seamlessly blend into her/his body.  


Body Terminologies


Fanny- refers to shaving from the anus to belly; this is an excellent solution  

for dogs with an extremely hairy backend like chow chows and Pomeranians.  

These breeds usually suffer from getting their waste stuck in their fur. 

GI Cut- refers to stripping of the entire body (this includes ears, tail, and head).  

This is a preferred option of pet parents whose pet has a dense  

undercoat. This is also a solution to your pet’s bad matting or excessive  



Mini Trim- refers to the triple treatment of face, fanny (shaving from the anus to belly  

for chows and Pomeranians), and nails. The mini trim keeps potty areas clean and fresh in-between grooms. 

Pom Pom– refers to cutting above clean feet and on the end part of her/his tail; usual  

recipients of this treatment are poodles and other coated dogs with curly  

or thick hair. 

Shell Out- refers to shaving of the belly up to armpits. This is perfect for dogs with  

dense undercoat who have lots of tangle issues at their pits and/or on their bellies. 


Feet Terminologies


Clean Feet- similar to clean face (shaving the face very close to skin), clean feet  

refers to complete shaving the foot up to her/his ankle, leaving the nails exposed; usual recipients are poodles. 

Round Feet- refers to creating fluffy feet that does not expose the nails 

Tight Feet- refers to shaving the feet, but contrary to clean feet, this treatment does  

not shave very close to the skin, the nails though are left exposed. Groomers say this is the middle ground of clean feet vs. round feet.
