Whether you are using scissors or clippers, you will want to brush or comb the fur out first. Even if you decide to keep the fur on your dog's legs long, you will most definitely notice a difference because the fur won't look scraggly or ragged once you are done grooming. Once you have finished, brush your dog daily to keep up the beautiful look you have created.
I noticed this dog was sensitive about his feet. I learned why. The owner insisted I shave his legs! Not trim, but shave them bald. I felt horrible doing it. The dog licked its legs after. Ill never do it again. Why would she insist I shave his legs bald? It was sad and obviously irritating for the dog.
This is a request I have never had and I am not sure why the owner would ask that of you. When uncomfortable with a request, I let the client know why and then politely decline. It's tough because you want what is best for the dog. All the best to you!
