I do not have a before picture of this gorgeous girl, but this is a pretty good visual of a cocker cut. (She wiggles a lot so her pattern isn't perfect).
Breed: American Cocker Spaniel
Body: #7 on back, legs and skirt hand scissored
Head: Crown in top of head, ears were left alone, face is shaved w/ #10
Shampoo: Oatmeal and Conditioner
As you can probably tell, this kitty is not thrilled about getting a bath, but this is a good example of how a short haired cat looks shaved down.
Breed: Short haired cat
Head: Blended at the head and cheeks scissored up
Tail: Left alone
This before and after shows how wonderful deshedding treatments work. She was only lightly scissored to tighten up her overall look. Notice how shiny her coat is after the dense undercoat was removed.
Breed: Long Haired Akita
Body: Deshedding treatment and excellent brushout, lightly scissored
Head: Lighly scissored to make even
Paws: trimmed neatly
Here is another example of a shaved down kitty. He is very old. Older cats are hard to make smooth because of the loose skin. He is a sweetheart though.
Breed: Longhaired cat
Body: #10 all over
Legs: Left alone
Head: blended as much as possible
