The American Eskimo dog is still a very loyal dog and the long hair can help to portray this side of the breed. It will look great on your dog as long as you know how to style it properly. This article will show you how to have the best look for your dog with the American Eskimo dog haircut. The short hair on the top and bottom is usually called the “wally” and is not hard to maintain.
It is easier to cut the top than the bottom but it still takes some practice to master the technique. First, remove any tangles from your dog’s hair with a damp towel. You will need a very soft towel so that you do not hurt your dog’s skin. You can use baby shampoo to make the transition gentle and easy to do. Also if you have sensitive skin then go for a natural shampoo instead of the chemical based ones.
With the dog in position let’s get started. Take your scissors and cut about two inches of the top and bottom part of the coat. Use the same direction as the hair grows in order to make it easy to straighten when you are finished. Do this on each side of the dog. You will need to do this a few times to make sure you get all the hair.
After you have completed this step, you can go ahead and cut some layers of hair on the top of the dog’s back. These are usually around the ears and the top of his tail. Do this carefully because the direction of the cut has to be done in a steady motion otherwise you might knock the dog out of alignment or even hurt him. If the dog gets hurt you can call your vet and he will fix it right away.
Now that you have finished with the top you can take a piece of rope or any strong wire and loop it around his hind end. Wrap this around the backside and then tie a rubber band around the end of this rope. This will help you keep the wire tight so that the dog cannot slip out of it. Just be careful not to pull the dog by the rope too much or else you will cut off his circulation.
The next step is to cut the bottom of his coat just below where his tail meets his back. You should be able to see the hair through the hole in his back. Use a sharp pair of scissors and carefully make your cut. Be careful not to cut the skin on the bottom of the dog. Once you have finished, you should have a nice smooth shaggy bottom.
Another great way to keep the top and bottom of the American Eskimo dog trimmed is to use a brush and a loofah. You should gently rub this loofah all over the bottom of the dog. This will allow the hair to be thoroughly shampooed, so it will look clean and smooth. This is a very easy way to keep your dogs coat clean.
There are many other techniques to keep your dogs coat clean. One of these is to spray dog shampoo all over the dog. It does not matter what color the dog is. This is a great way to make sure the dogs fur looks as shiny as possible. Dogs like shiny coats, and they like it a lot better than dull grey or brown ones.
