If you are a dog owner, you know that a dog haircut is important in order to maintain your dog’s cut. Most people are stuck inside for many days, and haven’t even bothered to give their dogs much of a cut. They have instead, focused on cleaning the house, stocking their fridge with food and water, preparing for next week’s camping trip, and making sure their dog has all of his current vaccinations. You are really putting this entire pet-keeping thing to the test, by not giving your dog a proper cut. Here is how to properly and safely cut your dog.
First, you need to remember that there is a difference between cutting your dog’s neckline and cutting his hair. Dog hair doesn’t get cut off at the neckline. The hair gets cut off somewhere else, usually near the ears. This is very important, because you don’t want to accidentally cut your dog’s neck. There is also a difference between muzzles. A muzzle is used to prevent your dog from biting you, while a mohawk is used to make him look pretty.
It is important that you take your dog’s neckline into account when cutting his hair. For one, this will help you avoid accidentally cutting him. As you probably already know, a mohawk can be very hard to hold on to, especially if you have a large dog like a German shepherd. If you do not take your dog’s neckline into consideration, it is possible to accidentally cut him.
In order to ensure that you do not cut your dog’s neckline, you should use a towel or washcloth. Simply rub the area around your dog’s neck. Do this until you see no hair. Then take a piece of toilet tissue or a washcloth and wipe out the area again. You should repeat this process until there is no more hair.
Use scissors to trim the ends. Make sure you use different scissor blades for the different areas around your dog’s neck. If you do not have enough spare time to sharpen the scissors yourself, buy a dog hair trimmer from any pet store. When you have the scissors ready, it will be easier for you to trim the ends of his hair.
If your dog has long hair, you should use a comb to straighten the dog’s hair. Do this by placing the comb under the dog’s chin, then taking it to his back. While holding the dog’s neckline, move the comb in a downward motion until you get to the part of his hair where you would like to have the hair cut.
Cut the hair at the same place as the hair on your dog’s neck. Use the same amount of pressure that you would if you were haircutting a human being. Stop once you reach the desired point. Do not trim more hair from the dog’s neckline than what is necessary. You can leave a few long strands on the dog’s neck to give him a unique look.
After getting your dog’s neck free of unnecessary hair, make sure that you are also done with the clipping. You can now spray the remaining hair on any part you wish. Make sure that you do not spray it directly on the dog’s face. Instead, spray it on his paws or the bottom of his paws. This will prevent the hair from sticking to his paws.
If you want, you can also spray the remaining hairs on other parts of the dog. However, make sure that you only spray on areas you are positive will not be consumed by your dog. Also, keep in mind that you must only spray it on your dog’s face and not on his entire body. This is to prevent any unwanted accidents.
After getting all the unwanted hair, you can now take your dog to his groomer. However, you should ask the groomer to only straighten the dog’s coat and not to shave him. The reason for this is because some shampoos used to rid the dog of unwanted hair contain chemicals that can be harmful to dogs. However, if you insist on having your dog’s coat professionally straightened, make sure you inform the groomer before hand. This way, the groomer will be able to prepare the dog for his haircut.
