      Cheeks

    • C.

    Explanation
    Curly coated round heads often need the neck coat to be hand scissored into the head to be balanced with the rest of the trim. This means that the fur on the neck needs to be carefully trimmed or scissored in order to achieve a balanced appearance with the rest of the dog's grooming.

  • 3. 

    The framed area over the eyes should be ____________ for drop coat round heads

    • A.

      Hand scissored

    • B.

      Clipped

    • C.

      Shaved

    Correct Answer
    A. Hand scissored
    Explanation
    For drop coat round heads, the framed area over the eyes should be hand scissored. This means that the hair around the eyes should be carefully trimmed using scissors, rather than being clipped or shaved. Hand scissoring allows for more precision and control, ensuring that the hair is shaped and styled properly to frame the eyes in a desired manner.

    For most breeds with a rectangular head, the top skull is closely trimmed to show off the __________ of the head between the ears.

    • A.

      Roundness

    • B.

      Level line

    • C.

      Curved

    Correct Answer
    B. Level line
    Explanation
    For most breeds with a rectangular head, the top skull is closely trimmed to show off the level line of the head between the ears. This means that the top of the head is trimmed in such a way that it appears flat and straight, creating a level line between the ears. This enhances the rectangular shape of the head and gives it a more balanced and symmetrical appearance.

    In most cases on a clipped face, going _____________ the grain will give you the cleanest result and the most immaculate lines.

    • A.

      With

    • B.

      Against

    • C.

      Along

    Correct Answer
    B. Against
    Explanation
    Going against the grain on a clipped face will give you the cleanest result and the most immaculate lines. This is because going against the direction of hair growth allows the clippers to cut the hair shorter and closer to the skin, resulting in a cleaner and more precise finish. Going with or along the grain may leave some stray hairs or uneven lines, whereas going against the grain ensures a smoother and more polished look.

      A straight line

    Correct Answer
    B. Inverted “V”
    Explanation
    To give definition to the eyes and lengthen the muzzle on a face that is clipped close at the stop area, an inverted "V" can be clipped. This shape helps to create a visual effect that enhances the eyes and elongates the muzzle. It is a technique commonly used in grooming to enhance the overall appearance of the face.

      Finger

    • B.

      Comb

    • C.

      Thinning shears

    Correct Answer
    B. Comb
    Explanation
    To ensure that no skin is caught in the band of a tied up topknot, it is recommended to slide a comb between the topknot band and the skull. This helps to create a barrier and prevents any hair or skin from getting tangled or caught in the band. Using a comb allows for a smooth and safe tying of the topknot without causing any discomfort or harm to the dog.

    • C.

      Balanced head

    On harsh coated round heads, using the tip of the ear to establish the length of coat helps evenly shape the entire headpiece in a _______________.

    • A.

      Balanced manner

    • B.

      Symmetrical look

    • C.

      Circle

    Correct Answer
    A. Balanced manner
    Explanation
    Using the tip of the ear to establish the length of coat on harsh coated round heads helps to evenly shape the entire headpiece. This means that the coat will be distributed evenly around the head, creating a balanced appearance. By using the ear as a reference point, groomers can ensure that the coat is trimmed to the same length on all sides, resulting in a symmetrical look. This technique helps to maintain a consistent and balanced appearance for the dog's head.

    On harsh coats, using _____________ with the lay of the coat will minimize sharp lines.

    • A.

      Clippers

    • B.

      Standard shears

    • C.

      Thinning shears

    Correct Answer
    C. Thinning shears
    Explanation
    Using thinning shears with the lay of the coat will minimize sharp lines on harsh coats. Thinning shears are designed to remove bulk and blend the hair, creating a softer and more natural look. By using thinning shears, the groomer can strategically thin out certain areas of the coat, reducing the appearance of sharp lines and creating a more seamless blend. This technique is particularly effective on harsh coats, which tend to have a coarser and denser texture.

      Leave alone

    • C.

      Thinning shear entire muzzle

    Correct Answer
    B. Leave alone
    Explanation
    Leave alone. This means that if a natural head style already has a nice, neat muzzle, it should be left as it is and not altered or trimmed in any way. This suggests that the natural appearance of the muzzle is already satisfactory and does not require any further grooming or styling.

    • C.

      #7F

    Correct Answer
    A. #10 or #15
    Explanation
    On round head styles, it is recommended to use a #10 or #15 blade to clip the stop area between the eyes. These blade sizes are commonly used for general grooming purposes and provide a close yet safe cut. Using a light touch is important to avoid any accidental cuts or injuries to the pet.

    Round heads can be created on many different purebreds and mixed breed dogs.  The overall look will vary from dog to dog based on skull type, ear set, muzzle length, and _____________.

      Temperament

    • B.

      Size of the dog

    Explanation
    The overall look of round heads on dogs can vary based on various factors such as skull type, ear set, muzzle length, and coat type. The coat type of a dog can greatly influence the appearance of its head, as different coat types can create different textures, lengths, and styles. Therefore, the coat type is an important factor to consider when determining the overall look of a round head on a dog.

    The fur on pet Terrier dogs normally does not have the _______________ required to frame the face the way a hand-stripped coat does.

    • A.

      Soft texture

    • B.

      Harsh texture

    • C.

      Smooth texture

    Correct Answer
    B. Harsh texture
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "harsh texture". This is because the fur on pet Terrier dogs lacks the roughness or coarseness needed to shape the face in the same way as a hand-stripped coat. The term "harsh texture" implies that the fur is not soft or smooth, but rather has a rougher feel to it.

    To trim long eye brows on a rectangular head, use ___________ in reverse.

    • A.

      Clippers

    • B.

      Thinning shears

    • C.

      Curved shears

    Correct Answer

    When removing excessive facial coat on a dog that has extremely thick fur, stretch the skin and slow the clipper stroke.  This will help minimize the unsightly _______________.

    • A.

      Corduroy tracking

    • B.

      Whiskers

    • C.

      Stretch marks

    Correct Answer
    A. Corduroy tracking

    When removing excessive facial coat on a dog with thick fur, it is important to stretch the skin and slow down the clipper stroke. This technique helps to minimize the appearance of corduroy tracking, which refers to the visible lines or tracks left on the dog's coat after clipping. By stretching the skin, the fur is pulled taut, allowing for a smoother and more even cut. Slowing down the clipper stroke ensures precision and reduces the likelihood of creating uneven or jagged lines in the fur.

By gathering the appropriate amount of coat around the eyes, the topknot can be positioned correctly and create a neat and polished appearance. The eyes serve as a guide for ensuring that the gathered coat is proportional and visually appealing.
