I've never been to a groomer, I'm terrified of their doing something I can't bear, or worse still (forgive me, good groomers, but how do we ever know for sure?) frightening or bullying my dogs. There are so many horror stories. I've had long-haired dogs (Cotons until Cuba, my Havanese) for ten years and always done them myself; I've never trimmed anything except sometimes tidying up paws, until recently I started to trim my Coton's fringe (bangs - I'm English, we don't know about 'bangs'!!). Cuba now has a grown-up topknot and it suits her. Tycho (my Coton) used to have two little topknots, like a horned owl, which I liked but in the end I thought it would be easier to keep it shorter; not sure it is, really - once you start you have to keep on snipping away and he still has hair in his eyes but it's now too short to put in topknots. I think I'd personally recommend NOT trimming any hair on the head.
