While you might be able to blow your own nose and keep it clean, your dog can't do this for himself. For the guys out there, trimming your mustache is a pretty simply five-minute process. Your dog can't shave or trim his mustache. Nope! He counts on you to take care of things like this. If you don’t, it could lead to a host of personal and medical problems. It becomes even more important if your poor pup comes down with a puppy cold. If you don't work to keep his nose trimmed and clean, he could easily end up with a bacterial infection.
Imagine if you had a mustache that started growing into your nose. Now take this one step further--the hairs start tickling and irritating your nose to the point where all you want to do is scratch at it. One way to know that your pup's nose needs to be trimmed is you may catch him rubbing his muzzle on the carpet or furniture in your home. It's up to you to do something about it.
A good healthy nose is very important to your pup's overall health. He uses his nose just as much as you use your eyes. It is vital that you keep it clean and keep the hair trimmed back from it. Be gentle and patient with your pup, he might not appreciate it at first, but in time he will come to love having his face groomed on a regular basis.
