Grooming a small dog's head is not as monumental a task as you might believe. Instead of paying a groomer what amounts to a small fortune over the life of your dog, why not take a little extra time and learn how to do it yourself? It's a skill that is relatively easy to master and is a great way to spend a little one-on-one time with your little guy.
Your dog probably doesn't worry too much about what his head looks like. Yet, if you want him to stay healthy and looking his handsome best, it's your job to take care the grooming. Learning to groom his head is only one small part of learning to groom his entire body. After the first few sessions, you should be able to brush and trim the hair on your dog's head in just a few minutes.
Grooming your small dog's head is really pretty easy once you both get the hang of it. There is a learning curve on both your parts. Take your time, be gentle, and use lots of praise as you go along. If your pup starts to fuss, take a break and let him calm down before resuming. This can be a relaxing time for both of you if you let it be.
