Have you been paying ridiculous amounts of money each month taking your pup to the groomer just to have his coat groomed? Or are you one of those people who will wait until your pup begins to look like a great big ball of fluff before doing anything about it? Well, you certainly aren't alone, as millions of people go through the same issue every day. What they may not want to know or learn to do, you can learn to use clippers to trim your pup's hair, keeping him looking his best and your money where it belongs, in the bank.
Very few dogs ever start out enjoying being groomed, especially when you are talking about using noisy electric clippers. Not only does grooming require them to sit still for what--to a dog--seems to be an eternity, but it also requires your pup to put up with being bathed, brushed, combed, snipped and clipped. For many dogs, this can feel like too much, but with training, you can teach your pup to enjoy grooming time or at least tolerate it.
Using clippers for the first time can be a little scary. The best thing you can do is get used to them yourself before you expect your dog to accept your grooming efforts. By taking time to get used to them and then giving your pup time to get used to them as well, both of you will have a much better time when it's time to trim his coat.
