I always love getting my hair cut. Whether it's a completely new look, or just a trim, getting my hair cut is always a rejuvenating experience. If you do have or have had a dog, you know the pleasing feeling you may get when your dog comes home from the groomer's looking all sleek and sharp and, well, groomed. However, grooming gets to be kind of expensive, and so you sometimes might want to try your own hand at cutting your dog's hair. Here are a few ideas to help you give your dog the best haircut possible!
You do have a bit of creative license with your dog grooming, but your creative genius can't extend too far past a few parameters. Remember that a good, short haircut, can really help your dog deal with the heat of summer, and you can get away with shaving it to about an inch long. This shorter look will also help you see fleas and ticks easier. Before you go to town with the scissors and razor however, remember these few things.
So, now that you have a bit of know-how in the area of grooming, you can put your knowledge to use and really make your dog look good!
