My Yorkie’s hair is getting long and I wanted to know some tips on how to cut its hair. I do not want to take it to the groomer, I want to learn to cut his hair myself. I have tried a couple of times, I am having a hard time getting it to not be afraid of the scissors. Any advice?
First of all, get him exhaust him! Play with him for a long time so he gets really, really tired. When I do mine I give them any kind a bone treat they don’t normally get (Something that lasts awhile). It keeps them entertained so they lie still and should distract him from being scared. He will see it as a good thing because he gets a bone. Put your fingers close to his skin with the hair in between them and cut the hair. Do that all over his body until he is short! It will take a few hours though and you will need to let him have breaks. It would be faster with clippers if the dogs not afraid of them. (one of mine is so I can’t use them on him) It would be a good idea to have someone hold him when you do around his face. Good Luck!
Oh and when you do his tummy area, if you could have someone hold the bone up so that he has to stand while he chews on it, it would be easier for you!Tags: Yorkie
