One grooming issue many dog owners face with trepidation is cutting the hair around their dog's face. While doing this can be a bit scary at first, once you get the hang of it, you can start saving a fortune on grooming fees. There really isn't any reason why you can’t learn to cut your pup's face hair like a pro after a few practice runs. For most breeds, it should only take about 10 to 15 minutes, with some long-haired breeds taking a little bit longer. The same applies to those breeds requiring special grooming styles.
From your dog's point of view, he really doesn't care how well-groomed his facial hair is. But at the same time, when the hair on his face starts getting up his nose or in his eyes, he expects you to come to his aid. Keep in mind, your pup is going to be scared of the tools you will be using, so take your time and let him get used to them.
There is nothing wrong with being a little nervous about cutting the hair on your dog's face, it is probably something you have never done before. That's okay, as long as you follow our guides and take your time every time, you will soon master this skill and start saving all that grooming money for your next vacation.
