- Wash and brush your dog thoroughly
I would recommend buying shampoo specifically for dogs. Human shampoo can hurt their sensitive skin. Tip: If you have an area outside to wash your dog, it’s much easier and not as messy.
- Grab your clipper, a comb and a brush to get the stickers out
Make sure the clippers are sharp otherwise it can pull your dog’s hair.
- Slow down while using the clippers
Take your time and the cut will look more professional and clean.
- If your dog can’t stand still, have a friend come over to hold him or her steady
Friends who groom together, stay together!
- Make sure you cut in the same direction the hair grows
Cutting against the hair can be painful for your pup (and it’ll just look bad).
- Be careful!
The clippers can get hot.Make sure you’re monitoring the temperature of the clippers. We wouldn’t want a burned poochy! Use caution. If you’re nervous to try this out, ask your local groomer for tips. Maybe they’ll tell you their secrets, if you’re lucky.
Good luck with your cut!
