When it comes to trimming your dog’s hair, there are some important things to keep in mind. It’s a good idea to brush your dog out thoroughly with a dog brush before you start clipping. A bath is also a good pre-clipping habit to get into. If there are any tangles in your dog’s fur that are impossible to break free, you will need to cut them off using either or dog scissors. Being careful not to clip your pup’s skin, cut as far from his body as possible while slowly working the knot away from him. Before clipping your dog’s fur, choose the proper blade guard for the desired length of fur. When trimming, be sure to go slowly, as to not pull your dog’s fur or leave unsightly lines. And always trim with the fur’s natural growth pattern. While trimming hold your dog still, or consider purchasing a dog grooming table to avoid any sudden movements. When grooming around the face, ears and paws, it’s best to use dog scissors. These are very sharp and unprotected, so it’s especially important to restrain your dog securely while using your dog scissors or any other dog grooming products. When finished, your dog will benefit from another rinse-off to wash away all the stray fur you’ve clipped. And if you want that groomer-fresh look, get some fabric and cut a triangle-shaped dog bandana to tie loosely around your dog’s neck. For the groomer-fresh scent, finish your dog off with a quick spritz of some dog deodorizer spray or even some dry dog shampoo.
