Grooming for newbies!
(Salem, OR, USA)
Ok there are a few questions I have.
First my Great Pyr is 12 weeks old and a very happy healthy pup!
He ADORES the brush I bring it out and he sits on my feet please mom please brush me! I have been brushing him between 2-7 times a day just because I enjoy it as much as he does!
I red somewhere that you can hurt their undercoat if you brush them too much with a specific brush.
(Using a pin brush at the moment for daily brushing not the overhaul of fluff I know is coming)
Can I OVER brush him if he likes it?! I know this might be a ridiculous question, but honestly Id rather be safe than sorry!
This morning while trimming his paw pads I found out he is SUPER ticklish! (any way to reduce this a bit to make the trim a little easier?) He doesn't mind me playing with them, rubbing them etc, so long as I don't tickle them by a trim we made it through but its hard to sit still if it tickles!
Now I have googled, youtubed etc and I cant find an answer. How do I trim his butt?! Really anyone just have a good sketch of the cut lines I would need as I am a visual learner..
I don't want to have a shaved bum sticking out for all the world to see and looking so tacky! But I also don't want dingleberries!
I have seen diagrams for this dog and that dog but the Pyr seems to have a very specific shape to their rear unlike most of the others I can find information on.
