In UKC you can show a coated dog with the rest, they are kinder about this "fault" than AKC (I know of a coated GRCH). But you cannot overgroom, the dogs can't have any grooming "products", just a regular bath and brushing. Dogs that require certain trims can get trimmed.

If we're talking about a GSD, then no you don't trim them at all. I'm talking about something like a Portuguese Water Dog that is usually shown with a lion cut.

Neatening up of the paw pads is allowed. It's just considered good hygiene and animal husbandry. All of my dogs have paw pads trimmed

Cutting the hair on the bottom of the feet is allowed in UKC.

I'm not sure if they would DQ someone that cut the hair on the TOP of the feet (the floofies that coaties get between the toes).
