....The Chest....

Comb through, if needing really thinned use the king comb to take some undercoat out. Use thinning scissors to thin and shape the chest with the cutting direction always towards the middle and down use this line to trim the chest down (its amazing how much you can cut off) when you have taken off the chest and the dog is standing facing you, you can take the line you have done and follow it in between the front legs for the tummy.

....The Top-Line....

The top Line can have lots of long stray and wavy hair some times. I use the King comb to thin and take out some of the under coat and comb through every so often so you can see if you start to take out to much. Stray hairs sticking up and excess waves can be helped by tidying up with thinning scissors.

....The Feathers....

Feathers can be very difficult to manage Especially if you are a proud owner of a Newf with really thick hair. I use the de tangle blade comb first as it will get all the way down to the skin. I then can more easily use the wide tooth comb. To trim on pet dogs I gather the feathers in my hand at the top of the inside leg, then slide my hand to the bottom of the leg, holding tight. I cut off the excess that goes past the back pad with curved scissors. The same is done to the back.

....The Head and Ears....

The top and side of the head can have lots of long stray hair, You can tidy this up with thinning scissors. I trim down their ears first with scissors after combing through to get a nice ear line, then thin them down. Once you have done this you will have a much better view of the front sides and chest. Lift up the ears and trim away the excess that the ears lay on top of (this can help keep the ears cooler, cleaner). You will not notice any difference to the appearance when the ears go back down.

....The Tummy, Under Line....

This is easier done after you have done the chest. Use the line from in-between the front legs and follow this with your thinning Scissors to cut off excess hair. From the sides you can make a nice tidy line along the bottom to make it look tidy with scissors but be sure not to take to much off especially if you have a Male. From the sides you can also tidy up hair coming down to the tummy line with thinning scissors. Brushing through with the wide comb and King comb where needed.

....The Sides of the Body....

The Sides can have lots of long thick hair some times when in full coat. I use the King comb to thin and take out some of the under coat and comb through every so often so you can see if you start to take out to much. Long or stray hairs can be helped by tidying up with thinning scissors. On the sides of the legs front and back excess hair from the feathers can grow nearly right round (on dogs with really thick coats) I thin allot of this away.

....The Feet and Pads....

Feet and Pad trimming is a real must for any Newf owner as the hair that grows under the pads can become very long and be constantly wet so need trimmed every month I would say. The Feet can be tidyed up by using the curved and thinning scissors and cutting off excess hair to shape the foot. I use scissors to cut in between the pads but if that's not for you, you can use the curved ones or buy a pair of rounded end one.

For General day to day brushing. I use the slicker brush and it will keep the top coat neat and tidy. For the Feathers I use the blade then tooth comb. The king comb is great for thinning and taking out under coat. The Water Bottle I use with water if areas need a good comb through but I also some times add a bit of Conditioner in (mixed well with warm water) and spray through i.e. Feathers and other bits that seem to mat faster (the trouble spots I say) as it helps keep the coat looser. Trim and file nails as required. Brushing your dogs teeth regularly will stop decay and help with bad breath.

Above - Is the equipment i.e. Brushes, Combs and Scissors I use on My Dogs all the time. I have over the years used and tried many others so I do know it can be very much trial and error in finding the correct things you need for Grooming and grooming your dog can be very much in its self "trial and error". That is why I have put in the above as it may help and save you lots of time, money. I have found these really do the jobs they  say they are for.

My Photo Editing skills are not the best but hopefully it will give you a guide in the right direction.
