Sanitary Trim

Do I have to give sanitary trims? Piper hasn't had an issue with poop getting in her coat, but she does get pee stains down both back legs. Will trimming the hair help? I wanted to leave her coat to grow long, but have been told that it's absolutely necessary to give a sanitary trim. What says the experts?

I have a male dog so a tad different but from the time Django was a puppy, i have always used wipes after each poop to keep the back end clean and occasionally give a wipe in the front. The hair should be kept shorter in those areas, I would believe it's the same for female dogs as well.

Oops! just realized this should have been in the grooming section! Is there any way to move it?

I know there was a recent thread about girls who pee on their legs. Not a problem with Kodi.

I keep a TINY bit trimmed right around his anus, but very little as I hate the "naked bullseye" look. And he never gets poop caught in his hair anyway. On boys, some people leave a "wick" to lead pee away from the body. I've found that Kodi has very good aim even without this, and by keeping the hair short around his penis, I don't have to worry about it being wet, or the hair turning yellow.
