I don’t do anything with the insides of their ears, but none of mine have very hairy ears. I think that depends on the dog, and I’d ask your vet. some Havenese have SO much hair in their ears that there is no air flow, and it can cause infections. Mine have almost no hair inside thir ears.
Mine are all reasonably good on the grooming table. Kodi and Pixel really need to be in a grooming loop so that I can have both hands free. Panda is my little diva, who just lies on the table and lets me flip her over as needed. But I just got lucky with her. i can’t claim it was training! LOL!
Pixel is NOT good for me to do her nails. I have to have Dave hold her for me to do her nails. The other two I can do by myself.
I just gave Kodi his second haircut yesterday and today, and I’m afraid I kind of butchered his back legs though. �� He wouldn’t stay standing up, and where last time I thought I left them a little long, this time they are DEFINITELY too short. And it took me HOURS. I was pretty disappointed in how he came out. (I’ll take pictures tomorrow) I may start taking him to the gal who does Pixel after this, even though I know it will cost a lot for me to have her scissor him. (And I don’t want him clippered)
But I still bathe them all at home and do all the foot, face, nail and sanitary trims. I have just been having the groomer clip Pixel. And now, if I can’t do a more consistent job on Kodi (and have it take less than the 5 hours over 2 days it took this time, just to have him look butchered!) I think I may be taking him to her too!
I forgot that the down side of clipping him down was that even though I didn’t have to comb him out all the time anymore... hair grows. FAST!!!
