Project Description

Project Brief.

La Terra Dios Westies is dedicated to producing only the finest quality West Highland White Terrier puppies for discerning Westie owners. They are located in Coeur d’Alene Idaho. Their largest concern when they reached out to Destiny King Productions was improving and revising their website content. The content was over 10 years old and the articles exceeded thousands of words. Not only did we provide a fully responsive and modern website, we revised and rewrote their web content to be relevant and engaging. To see the live website please visit: www.LaTerraDios.com

Skills Needed.

La Terra Dios was an exciting challenge for our writers. With years of content being provided, we had the opportunity to not only revise the articles but to showcase the story of their company. We took the dark old web design and freshened it up with bright whites and light blues. Each page covers in-depth content about who they are as a company and what they do.

Finding a groomer who really knows how to properly trim and shape your Westie may be a problem. It seems quite a few “groomers” out there think your Westie should look like a Scottie, Wheaten Terrier, Welsh Terrier, Sealyham Terrier, Norwhich Terrier and so many come out looking like “A SCHNAUZER — HEAVEN FORBID!!

The proper head of the fantastic looking Westie is that which is patterned after the Chrysanthemum flower which is FULL and ROUND not trimmed to a WEDGE toward his/her chin. The tail should be shaped like a carrot, thick at the base, tapered to a point at the tip (no trailing hairs) and the hair
should be trimmed even with the tip of the tail bone. A Westie is supposed to have a skirt. Trimmed neatly it should come to within an inch or so of the ground. The neck should be trimmed so as to accent the chrysanthemum shape (lion type) head. All clipping of the body hair must be clipped in the natural direction of the hair and blended cleanly down to the skirt and legs. There should NEVER be a horizontal cut-line down the sides of the body. This is all wrong! The hair on the top of the head shall be brushed forward over the eyes and that hair trimmed so those beautiful coal black eyes can be seen clearly. This hair should create a “visor” effect.

When first setting out to secure grooming for your West Highland White Terrier, you will need to spend a few minutes going through the yellow pages of your phone book listing all the grooming shops in your area. You’ll probably want to check the ones nearest you first but, NEVER NEVER discount those that may even be an hour or more drive away. The reason we say this is, if the shop that can do a PROPER job for you and your Westie friend demands an hour’s drive, you will find that time very well spent. Maybe you could do a little shopping, have lunch with a friend or if it’s a nice day, spend the waiting time relaxing
at a nearby park under a big shade tree with a good book. We have a grooming shop here at our ranch and many times, during the warmer months, the parents of our grooming clients relax under our many 70 – 80 foot tall cedar trees surrounding our facility while reading some of our dog magazines or a book they brought with them.

You have spent much time and considerable expense securing a high quality Westie who will offer more love and companionship then you can ever imagine sooooo, placing him/her in the hands of a well qualified groomer, even if it causes some inconvenience over the years, will prove to be of small consequence.

Beware! Someone clipping a longer haired dog extremely short can possibly change the texture and even the color of the coat that grows back! Many times “shaving-down” a normally long/medium haired dog will create a state of depression in the dog. We’re not sure why this happens but, we know it surely can happen! The dog may want to hide as if being ashamed of his/her appearance, acting “out-of-sorts” and shy for weeks!

All Westies need to be groomed to high standards so finding an expert dog groomer can be a little taxing. Very few groomers know how to properly groom a Westie without making them look like a Wheaten Terrier, a Scottie, a Welsh Terrier, or only to give him/her a Schnauzer look.

A properly groomed Westie should have a head that has been patterned with the resemblance of a Chrysanthemum flower –a FULL ROUND TRIM that does NOT wedge towards the chin. The tail needs to have a carrot shape – thicker at the base and tapered towards the end with no trailing hair. The hair must be trimmed to be even with the tip of its tailbone. A Westie needs to have a skirt, and when it’s been nicely trimmed, it should be about an inch from the ground surface. As for the head, it needs to be trimmed to assume the chrysanthemum head shape (lion type). All hair clipping should be done in the hair’s natural direction of growth then neatly blended to the skirt and the legs.

A horizontally cut line should NEVER be there on the sides of the body. That’s inappropriate! As for the hair lying on top of his head, it needs to be brushed forward towards the eyes then trimmed nicely, so the attractive coal black eyes are seen clearly. The hair should have a “visor” effect.

Beware of a groomer who clips longer hair of your dog to be extremely short! This can cause a change of color as well as the texture of the hair that grows later on. Most of the time, when a long-haired dog has their hair trimmed down the dog appears to go into a state of depression. We do not know for sure why it happens, but we are pretty sure it does happen. The dog may shy away from hiding as if he/she is ashamed of their new appearance for several weeks! By knowing how a Westie should be groomed, you are sure to find a good groomer.
