It depends on the dog and how much ear hair they have. i don't pluck Kodi's... Other people don't have any choice

I groom my dogs (not a professional, I just muddle through) and never did it- but recently I brought them to a grooming school for a clip and they plucked their ears. They do have very hairy ears inside, but haven't had any problems with infections. Not sure whether I will try it myself...right now we're dealing with mats from playing in the snow! think we'll do shorter clip now They don't seem to get cold easily, and are fine for an hour walk in the cold without any coats.

You brought them to a grooming school for a clip? Brave woman!

Talking

The grooming school is run by the same person who runs the day care they go to. So I was confident that it would be OK.

Not only was it OK, both times I have brought them, they came back beautifully done! The price- 15 dollars each, one of the best bargains on the planet It makes my amateur clips look quite pathetic....

Off topic.... I go to a school for massage, nails, etc. They do a better job as they are by the book without cutting corners. I would imagine a grooming school would be by the book also. I say kudos for giving the school a shot. Same as the medical intern (off topic again), people need to learn so that services are available for the future.

And they are continually supervised by a master groomer, who has her own business, so her reputation is also on the line. I was very pleased
