OK, here's Lulu's puppy cut. It's not quite done yet, but you get the idea. I'm pleased so far!

She's beautiful! How do you keep her face and eyes so clean? No staining?

She is beautiful! Tell us what you have done, ok? Do you have any before pictures?

Did you use scissors only? Or a trimmer? Tell me, please....I am getting real close to taking Dexter to a groomer!

Ann, no none of mine have the face/eye staining and I attribute it to grain free food. Not so sure I'm right though. I always wonder why some have the staining and others don't.

Linda, I got an Oster Power Max clipper. It came with a one inch blade extension thing. I started on her back and went down with the way the hair grows from the neck to the tail. Then I went from the middle of the back down the sides, again the way the hair grows. I did one sweep accoss the top of her head from the bangs to her neck and they used the scissors to touch up her bangs.
Next I will do the legs better and I think use the same blade or maybe a 3/4 inch one. It was really easy, I was surprised! I only stopped at this point because I was afraid I would over do it and Lulu was getting very antsy.
Here is how her back looked before: It was real cotton candy like and puffed was out. Also I like that I don't HAVE to do the top knot but I can if I want to.
