Here we are back to the test questions again.
I have so many true and false questions for clipping that it may take 2 or 3 Tuesday's to cover all of the questions. :)
On to the test.
True or False:
~1) Every dog can be clipped.
~2) Clipping a dog with a clipper is the safest way to clip a dogs hair.
~3) You should only use clean, sharp blades to cut a dogs hair.
~4) It is best to start clipping a dog on the back of the neck, 2 to 3 inches below the occiput.

Some of the answers may be a little long winded.
I will have the answers posted by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.
I got home late from work everyday last week, and it makes it hard to blog. :/
