    Grooming sheep-dogs

Sheep-dogs should be groomed two or three times a year. This is more a 'tidying up' than a complete grooming-the hair is not clipped or trimmed, or only one area of the body is clipped or trimmed.

. Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Kelpies, Kuvaszok, and Welsh Corgis:
Brush and remove matted hair using whatever brushes and combs are best suited to the length of the coat.
Trim the nails and hair between the toes.
Clean and pluck the ears.
Bathe the dog and dry the coat with a blower.

. Bouviers des Flandres, Pulis, Collies, Shetland Sheep-dogs, Old English Sheepdogs, and Briards:
Use a slicker and rake on parts that are difficult to get to. Clip hair around the anal region no shorter than 2 centimeters (1 inch).
Shave the belly from pubis to navel.
Trim the hair of the ears, eyebrows, whiskers, and paws (to make the paws look round).
Clip stray hairs on the back.
Comb the dog all over, bathe it, and dry it.

. Komondors, Corded Pulis:
The coat starts to cord when the dog is about a year and a half old.
After bathing the dog, wring out the cords by hand, and separate them from the skin, one by one.
Trim those that touch the ground.
