HOW TO ACHIEVE THE OPTIMUM RESULTS . . .
||Judging dogs is very subjective.
There are many things to consider; however, some judges choose to use the "Rule
of Five" to evaluate the breed characteristics (or lack thereof) in each
||The Rule of Five simply says: "The
easiest way to judge a dog is to look at the sum of the parts, not the
individual parts." There are only five properties that must be assessed using
this approach. These five properties are listed below alphabetically, rather
than by priority as this will vary from breed to breed depending on the
particular breed's primary function.
article we will be presenting breeds in categories according to coat texture
relevant to their breed standard. In each of these categories we will be giving
examples of breeds. Unfortunately we are unable to name every single breed with
relevant coat texture for each Group; however, I am sure that you will be able
to ascertain which category that your breed (or any breed not listed) will fit
Fundamentally, categories range from short / medium
coated breeds, (with or without fringing), through to bouffant, coarse, harsh /
hard , and silky / flowing.
Within these categories
we also encounter single versus double coated, coarse to soft fluffy bouffant
and coarse wiry to harsh textured.
Throughout the Laser
Lites range we have products to suit all coat textures. We have products that
simply maintain a correct coat texture to products that can enhance an incorrect
coat texture to bring it to the optimum for the breed requirement. And we have
products for maintenance ie non-show finish.
Further, because no two
dogs have identical coats (not even within the same breed) we sell core products
plus additives so that you can customise your own formulation that will be just
right for your particular dog.
Let's commence by
discussing the individual coat types.
All Laser Lites
shampoos and conditioners are designed to be diluted according to usage e.g.
bathing in a tub (typically dilute 10:1), or bathing in a hydrobath (typically
All Laser Lites shampoos are manufactured to
be low sudsing to prevent excessive suds during hydobathing. Due to the pH
balance of all Laser Lites shampoos and conditioners you are able to use them in
the concentrated form without fear of harm to an animal's skin or coat. And the
correct pH reduces dandruff. Because the shampoos are low sudsing, and most of
the conditioners are leave in, the amount of water required to bathe an animal
is significantly reduced.
