There is nothing more striking than a well presented black, having said this it is a sad fact of showing that an over trimmed coat is becoming more important than a good sound dog.
A neat trim that shows the dogs good points without the “cardboard” cut out appearance, looks so much nicer. Not everyone can trim to perfection but this should not stop a good dog from being considered, the old saying “The icing on the cake” crops up in many conversations but please remember that a cake without icing tastes just as good!
I have owned and bred many lovely blacks for myself and others to enjoy over the years, here are a few of them. Please click on any of the photos to enlarge.
