Afghan Hound Grooming  style
Getting an Afghan ready for this cut requires a lot of toilsome untangling. Use the teasel for the most difficult parts by using one hand to hold the hair at the base, and the other to untangle the knots. If the dog regularly gets groomed and brushed it will be an easier job and just using the comb will be enough. This is often times difficult because of the thickness of the dog's hair. Once all the knots are out, use the pin brush. Don't forget to brush out the difficult areas such as the armpits, anus, paws etc.
Pull out by hand all the loose hairs that stick out on the back so that it is even.
Start by cutting the hair on the abdomen, the contour of the crotch or groin.
Next shave the lower parts of the paws.
Cut the nails, and take the hair out from the inside of the dog's ears.
Bathe the dog by using an adequate shampoo. Then rinse out and apply the conditioner.
Rinse out thoroughly and dry the dog really well. Once the dog is dry, brush the hair out with a soft comb, or a soft brush.
Use the curved scissors to cut around the contour of the legs.
For the finishing you can use a special conditioner to give weight and shine to the dogs hair. If you use this product, brush it in so that it works in completely.
