Your dog's stomach might be his most favorite place for you to pet and rub. But that doesn't necessarily make it his favorite place to be groomed. Knowing how to properly care for the sensitive soft skin on your dog's stomach will help to make the grooming process easier. The area along your dog's stomach also includes your dog's groin area, which is extremely sensitive. Taking your dog's stomach from fuzzy, furry, tangled, and even knotty to slick and smooth is easy to do with a pair of scissors and a set of clippers.
Your dog may be a little apprehensive if you start rubbing his stomach for joy and pleasure and then begin tickling with the vibration of clippers. Get your dog down on the floor and rub his tummy and his face behind his ears to let him know that this is an interaction of love and affection before you start grooming his tummy. After you've done this process a few times, he will get used to it, know what to expect, and lie down ready for you to begin grooming.
Grooming your dog's stomach is a hairy issue. But make things easy by keeping your dog calm and comfortable and the clippers pointed in the direction of your dog’s fur growth. Trimming his stomach fur will turn your furry friend’s tummy into a place you would like to pet again.
