I have learned with all my pet ventures that the best start is planning.
Read about your dog's breed standard. While you may not be interested in competing for “best in show,” these breed guidelines are written to indicate the appropriate grooming for your dog's specific comfort, health and lifestyle.
Observe the professionals. Your vet, groomer, breeder or trainer will discuss certain details that will be important to your success in clipping your dog. They may even share some “tricks of the trade.” Watching a professional groomer work with your dog will prepare you for what to expect and help you overcome potential anxiety.
You've read the instructions, air-practiced your techniques, and the dog is clean and dry. You are ready!
When you begin clipping, shave an inconspicuous area first until you get your groove. Test your skill and your dog's tolerance. Make slow, short cuts at first, then work up to a professional level as you (and your dog) adjust to the process.
