      Density

    • B.

      Proper coat texture

    • C.

      Feathering

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A longer cut allows for more flexibility in shaping the coat and utilizing carding techniques.

This is important for maintaining the overall aesthetic of the coat and ensuring it looks healthy and well-groomed.

  • 2. 

    Blades ranging from a #10 to a #4F are commonly used to _______________ as an alternative to proper grooming techniques on pet.

    • A.

      Shave the face

    • B.

      Shave the feet

    • C.

      Set the pattern

    Correct Answer
    C. Set the pattern
    Explanation
    Blades ranging from a #10 to a #4F are commonly used to set the pattern as an alternative to proper grooming techniques on a pet. This means that these blades are used to create a specific design or style on the pet's fur. They are not used to shave the feet or face, but rather to create a desired pattern on the pet's body.

  • 3. 

    Bulk thin the _____________ area to accentuate the muscle.

    • A.

      Loin

    • B.

      Thigh

    • C.

      Neck

    Correct Answer
    B. Thigh
    Explanation
    To accentuate the muscle, it is necessary to bulk thin the thigh area. This means reducing the amount of fat or excess tissue in the thigh region, which will help to highlight and define the underlying muscle structure. By doing so, the muscles in the thigh area will become more prominent and visible, creating a more sculpted and toned appearance.

  • 4. 

    Clip the throat area from the base of the ear bulbs in a “V” shape, following the ____________ at the sides of the neck with a #15 or #10 blade.

    • A.

      Cowlick line

    • B.

      Neck muscles

    • C.

      Sternum

    Correct Answer
    A. Cowlick line
    Explanation
    When clipping the throat area of an animal, it is important to follow the cowlick line. The cowlick line refers to the natural direction in which the hair grows in that particular area. By following this line, the clipper blades can easily glide through the hair, resulting in a smooth and even cut. This technique helps to achieve a neat and professional appearance. Clipping in a "V" shape from the base of the ear bulbs ensures that the entire throat area is evenly trimmed. The neck muscles and sternum are not relevant to the technique of clipping the throat area.

    Cheeks are left as natural as possible to give a _____________ appearance.

    • A.

      Fluffy

    • B.

      Furry

    • C.

      Smooth

    Correct Answer
    C. Smooth
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "smooth" because leaving the cheeks as natural as possible implies that they are not altered or enhanced in any way. Smoothness suggests a lack of texture or roughness, giving the appearance of a natural and unaltered state.

  • 6. 

    Common carding tools can be a fine stripping knife, a ______________, or a #40 blade held between your fingers.

    • A.

      Pumice stone

    • B.

      Mat rake

    • C.

      Shedding blade

    Correct Answer
    A. Pumice stone
    Explanation
    A pumice stone can be used as a common carding tool. Carding is a technique used in various crafts, such as fiber arts, to separate and align fibers. A pumice stone can be effective in carding because of its rough texture, which helps to remove excess fibers and create a smooth and even surface. It can be used alongside other tools like a fine stripping knife or a #40 blade held between fingers to achieve the desired carding effect.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Ideally, the coat should be worked with hand stripping techniques, carding, and thinning shears to retain the proper coat texture, ___________, and natural look.

    • A.

      Style

    • B.

      Brilliant color

    • C.

      Shape

    Correct Answer
    B. Brilliant color
    Explanation
    The given answer of "brilliant color" does not make sense in the context of the question. The question is discussing the techniques that should be used to work with the coat, such as hand stripping, carding, and thinning shears. These techniques are used to retain the proper coat texture, shape, and natural look, not to enhance the color of the coat. Therefore, "brilliant color" is not a suitable answer.

  • 8. 

    If there is long fur between the toes, back brush the fur so it stands up on top of, and away from the foot.  With __________________ trim off the excess creating a neat and very natural looking foot.

    • A.

      Clippers

    • B.

      Thinning shears

    • C.

      Straight shears

    Correct Answer
    B. Thinning shears
    Explanation
    Thinning shears are the correct tool to use in this situation because they are designed to remove excess hair without creating a blunt cut. By using thinning shears, the long fur between the toes can be trimmed off in a way that creates a neat and natural-looking foot. Clippers would be too harsh and may result in a choppy appearance, while straight shears would create a blunt cut that is not as natural-looking.

  • 9. 

    Neaten the undercarriage line into a soft arch.  The highest point of the arch is directly below the __________.

    • A.

      Brisket

    • B.

      Stifle

    • C.

      Last rib

    Correct Answer
    C. Last rib
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the last rib. The undercarriage line needs to be neaten into a soft arch, and the highest point of the arch should be directly below the last rib. This means that when grooming or trimming the undercarriage, the line should be shaped in a way that creates a smooth curve, with the highest point positioned just below the last rib of the animal.

    Remember: for safety when edging ears, always keep the ____________ towards the tips of the ears.

    • A.

      Tip of the shears

    • B.

      Clippers

    • C.

      Stripping knife

    Correct Answer
    A. Tip of the shears
    Explanation
    When edging ears, it is important to keep the tip of the shears towards the tips of the ears for safety. This means that the sharp end of the shears should be directed away from the head and towards the outer edges of the ears. This helps to prevent any accidental cuts or injuries to the sensitive areas of the ears.

    Removal of whiskers on the muzzle is optional, based on _____________ or the amount of fur on the muzzle.

    • A.

      Gender of the dog

    • B.

      Client preference

    • C.

      Size of the head

    Correct Answer
    B. Client preference
    Explanation
    The removal of whiskers on the muzzle is optional and can be based on client preference. Some clients may prefer to have their dog's whiskers removed for aesthetic reasons, while others may choose to leave them intact. The decision to remove or keep the whiskers is not determined by the gender of the dog or the size of the head, but rather by the preference of the client.

      Sparse of hair

    • C.

      Well feathered

    Correct Answer
    C. Well feathered
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "well feathered." This means that the back of the front legs, the rear section of the thighs, and the undercarriage should have a dense and full coat of feathers. This is desirable in certain breeds of dogs, such as spaniels or setters, as it adds to their aesthetic appeal and can also provide protection from the elements.

      Obvious

    Correct Answer

    • A.

      Lay tight to the body

      Lay loose and away from body

    • C.

      Resemble a bristle like coat

    Correct Answer
    A. Lay tight to the body
    Explanation
    The natural body jacket should lay tight to the body in order to provide support and stability. This ensures that the jacket effectively immobilizes the spine and helps in maintaining proper alignment. A tight-fitting body jacket also helps in reducing movement and preventing further injury or damage to the spine.

      Head and neck

    • C.

      Body coat

    Correct Answer
    C. Body coat
    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that the tail is trimmed in the same way as the body coat. This implies that the tail is groomed or trimmed in a similar fashion as the rest of the body's fur. The phrase "trimming style" indicates that there is a specific technique or method used to maintain the appearance of the body coat, and this same technique is applied to the tail as well.

    • C.

      1/2

    Correct Answer
    B. 1/3
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1/3. This means that when trimming the outer ear leather, one should remove one-third of the top portion. If the ear is very long, the line should be set to the jaw.

By emphasizing muscle tone, the dog's athletic abilities are accentuated, allowing them to perform at their best in sporting activities.

    Correct Answer
    C. Card
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    With _______________, the longer hair may be finger plucked, carded, or stripped out by hand, retaining a neat and natural look.

    • A.

      Heavy-coated dogs

    • B.

      Light-coated dogs

    • C.

      Average coated dogs

    Correct Answer
    B. Light-coated dogs
    Explanation
    Light-coated dogs have hair that is easier to manage and maintain compared to heavy-coated dogs. This allows for techniques such as finger plucking, carding, or hand-stripping to be used to remove longer hair while still keeping a neat and natural appearance. Heavy-coated dogs, on the other hand, may require more extensive grooming methods such as clipping or shaving to achieve a similar result. Average coated dogs fall somewhere in between and may require a combination of techniques depending on their specific coat type.
