Caring for a dog with long hair can certainly be time-consuming. But the beauty your long-haired dog has is well worth the time you both put in maintaining his cut and fur. Grooming a long-haired dog with scissors can sometimes be challenging because of the length of the fur your dog has. You need to make sure when you're using scissors on his long hair that you are using the right scissors for the length and thickness of this luscious fur. Also, be sure to blend your cuts, so you don't see scissor lines across your dog's coat.
Grooming your long-haired dog with a set of scissors may be more time consuming than using clippers. Your dog may lose a little patience and need to be redirected during this process. If this happens, give him a break and come back to it or give him a treat to reward him for positive behavior and for being patient.
