Taking dogs to the groomers can get really expensive. However, there are now many different doggy hair styles that people can give their dogs themselves. Dogs are bathed, dried, and they often get a new haircut when they go to the groomers. All of this can be done at home now that there are simple tips as well as a description of the kind of tools that people will need to be able to do these haircuts.
The puppy cut is easy to maintain, and it is also pretty simple to do. This kind of trim can be done on almost every type of breed, and it does not take a lot of effort to get it done. It can be done with just a dog brush and pair of grooming scissors, but it is done a little easier using some dog grooming clippers with the number 30 clipper blade. The dog’s hair should be brushed up to have better access to cut the fur, and the clippers should be used following the way the dog’s hair lays. People can keep an inch of fur on their dogs, but they can also leave more than an inch. It is basically the kind of doggy fashion that makes the fur on the dog all the same length.
The lamb trim is the kind of doggy fashion that gives the dog more variety and texture. It can be done on basically any long-haired breed of dog big or small, and it is not too difficult to do. To do this cut, people will need a dog brush, a dog comb, dog grooming scissors, dog grooming clippers, and clipper blades. For this kind of cut, the number 7 clipper blade is used on the back of the dog from the top of the neck down, the number 30 clipper blade for the legs and the belly, and the scissors for however the owner wants the head of the dog to be. The dog grooming clippers should be used going with the growth of the hair rather than going the opposite way that the hair is growing.
Teddy Bear Head
The teddy bear head cut is the kind of doggy fashion that makes them look as if they have a round head. It can be done on most small dogs, but a Shitzu is an example of the kind of dog that this cut works well on. To do this kind of haircut, people need a pair of dog grooming scissors, a pair of thinning sheers, and a dog brush or comb. The hair of the dog needs to be brushed down over the dog’s eyes, then the hair covering the eyes are cut straight across at the top of the nose. Then the dog’s head needs to be pointed up, the ears need to be held back, the hair on the sides need to be brushed down on each side, and the hair is then cut with the scissors going down towards the ear. The next thing to work on is the areas many people call the dog’s “mustache”. The dog’s head needs to be pointed down, and the hair on each side of the dog’s face below the nose needs to be cut close to the dog so that the mustache look is gone. Then the dog’s “beard” needs to be trimmed closer to the dog’s body so that the bearded look is gone. The last thing to do is to brush all the hair out again and use the sheers to thin out any hair that is sticking out, and to cut any stray hairs that are still long.
