Has anyone a picture or information on the three basic cuts?
I'm not quite sure what 3 cuts you would be asking about. If you look thru pictures, there seem to be about as many cuts as there are people doing them.
Sadly, many end up looking like schnauzers, poodles, etc at some groomers!
|There is no single "cut" specifically for an oes. They're not meant to be clipped like poddles, schnauzers etc, people just shave them because it's convenient.
You can specify a certain length if you want coat left on but the dog has to be completely mat free to do that.
|I always hear puppy, teddy and show.|
|I've never heard of "Teddy" cut, but it sounds cute! We do puppy cuts in the spring, when it gets so rainy and muddy that it's impossible to keep a full coat clean and dry. I prefer it to be cut at about 3 inches.|
|Incidentally, here is a picture of Asterisk in a shorter puppy cut
|Puppy would probably be using the 3 3/4 blade and leaving about an inch or two throughout the year, A show coat is the full coated OES trimmed to "enhance" the points of the standard. I assume teddy is just a long haired OES?|
|There is a "4th" cut...Nekkid!

|We usually shave our sheepies bald in the late spring....it always has the effect of turning them into high-speed racing sheepdogs!|
|A friend is trying to find some information for me on the Teddy cut. I first seen mention of it in a grooming book I was reading at the library. They actually had a good collection of books but the problem is I don't remember which one it was. I do remember a bit from the picture, the head seemed rounded out and the legs, was more of a head on shot. No one has heard of these before?
Raven here we shave our dogs down twice a year due to tick hatches as we spend a lot of time in the bush with our dogs.
From all that running our vet says the dogs look like their on steroids..lol.
|i reckon theres lots more than 3 cuts!!!
this was billy when he was first rescued.
the puppy cut
this is about 2-3" long
the teddy cut - about 3-4" long
working on the show cut!
were up to about 7-8" at the moment and still growning!!!
everybody has a different style for every sheepie. i groom 4 sheepies incuding my own, and they are all different, mainly in the facial bits. i hate to see a sheepie with shaved legs, they look so silly, i love to hand scissor them stop them looking so spindily, though getting a sheepie to let you groom its front legs is an art form in itself!
one likes it scalped all over everywhere, one has it 1/2" all over but like a fluffy head and nose, another 3-4" long fluffy head, shaped face. and i do my billy a shaped rounded face but so i can see his eyes so i take off 1/3 of his nose with a 3f blade, clip under his chin with it too and thin out the sides.
every sheepie is different just like every hairstyle is different its all down to what the owner wants!

Boy, do you got that right! Incidentally, I love the Teddy Cut!
|Tonks and Luna got the Schnauzer treatment for their first puppy cut; i thought it looked adorable on them!!!
|While reading a online dog info site I came across this grooming info.
This seems to be an explanation of the 3 basic cuts that BoonDock Saint asked about.
I'd never heard of them before.
The puppy clip is generally about 1.5" all over, but can be adjusted to your taste. Many pet owners find it practical and easy to manage. It allows for plenty of dog activity and prevents matting.
A utility or kennel clip is accomplished by using a #5 or #7 blade over most of the body for a resulting 1/16" to a half" coat. The face, head, and tail are hand-scissored.
For the fluffy look, a teddy bear clip is recommended. This completely scissored style is a half" all over.
Not a lot of info but its the first time I've ever seen 3 basic cuts mentioned
|well the kennel/utility clip is so short that the dog doesnt need a brush while in kennels
the puppy clip of 1 1/2" cant be done unless you have it scissored as the longest blade i know will cut only 1" which comes out quite nice
the teddy cut is hand scissored to whatever specification the owner requires. 1" - .......
the shortest blade with a comb attachment is 1" this gives a short fluffy loook but for this it has to be really dematted as the combs will not go through any matts.
to hand scissor a dog. make peeks, like a heart beat monitor. about 2" wide from shoulder to shoulder then trim round. then the next bit. i learnt form a pomaranian grooming lesson. unlike collage!
|I LOVE that haircut!|
