I think he looks great! Mine never had stains that were terribly bad, it was faint and he had a lot of red in his coat so it wasnít very noticeable. I was more frustrated that his eyes teared all of the time! It was so hard to keep under his eyes dry, his muzzle hardly ever looked as fluffy as your puppyís does at 5 months! I think your little guy looks fantastic, and itís great that the staining is very faint.
Our groomer sort of thins there, not with thinnng shears, but a sort of sliding motion with the scissors in the direction of the hair growth to sort of slice out some of the bulk. I donít remember if I did it first and asked the groomer to do it that way or if the groomer always did it that way. We tried a bunch of groomers and I do some of the grooming, too, so itís all kind of mixed up in my head now. itís a common human haircutting technique, though, and itís my favorite way to manage the hair around the eyes, and I like his muzzle a bit short, so I always ask them to do it that way. I didnít want any shaving or ďscoopingĒ around his eyes. I think whether or not it works instead of making hair stick up more depends a lot on texture.
