Keeping your pup's nose trimmed and clean is a very important part of his regular grooming. If you have a dog with too much hair around his nose, the hairs can get inside his nostrils causing itching and irritation.
If your pup has a cold or another condition that causes nasal discharge, or if he gets his nose dirty a lot digging around in the yard, keeping it clean will reduce the chance of him developing a bacterial infection. Your pup may shy away from having his nose trimmed and cleaned at first, but as long as you don’t get excited, in time he will relax and let you do the job.
The last thing your pup wants is to have long hairs tickling his nose and driving him crazy. While he may not like having his nose trimmed, you can bet he likes having his nose being constantly tickled far less. He may even be letting you know he has a problem by rubbing his face all over the carpet and furniture.
It is very important to your dog's health and sanity to keep his nose well-groomed and clean. You should check his nose frequently for any signs of dirt and nasal discharge buildup. Be gentle any time you clean his nose and you may find he actually comes to enjoy the whole process. The important thing: being gentle will ensure you don't hurt his nose or he may come to hate the idea of having his nose cleaned and trimmed.
