Trimming the fur around your dog's eyes can be a bit tricky if you or your dog are feeling nervous or anxious. This is not a difficult task if you can get your dog to sit still long enough and keep a steady hand yourself. Trimming around your dog's eyes helps to keep your dog's eyes safe and healthy. Preparation for this task is key. You will want to try to get as much fur away from your dog's eyes as possible before you get started.
Your dog may be a little nervous about having scissors really close to his eyes. If you are confident and have a steady hand, your dog will sense your confidence and have confidence in you. If you are a little bit nervous, your dog will feel that too, so be sure to go into trimming the fur around your dog's eyes with a positive attitude so your dog can feed off of your energy.
