Everyone knows that dogs need to be groomed. If you don’t trim your dog’s hair, a lot of bacteria and parasites can grow inside your dog’s hair. But most people only know that dogs need to fix the hair on their bodies and don’t realize that they also need to fix the hair on the bottom of their feet. In fact, the hair on the bottom of the dog’s feet also needs to be repaired, if the hair on the bottom of the feet is not repaired, the dog will be very easy to fall, and over time it will also be easy to harbor bacteria. So how to repair the hair under the dog’s feet?
First we have to lift the dog’s feet with our hands and look at the fleshy pads on top of the paws. If there is trash or gravel on top of the pads, you need to clean up this dirt first. Once this dirt is cleaned off, use a comb to smooth out the hair on the feet. Then use the electric clippers to trim the hair on the front and sides, the angle between the clippers and the toes should be at a 45-degree angle, and then slowly trim the hair from the center to the sides, and then finally trim the edges of the top of the paws neatly.
Then we’re going to do the trimming of the hair on the back of the paws. Start by lifting your dog’s feet up and then combing the hair on the paws downwards to smooth it out. Then use electric scissors against the paws to trim. We can trim the hair on the back of the paws in an upward sloping shape, and then, round off the hair by following the paws for a week. The dog will also have some very short hairs between each pad of the foot, and this is the time to use shorter scissors for trimming. We start by flipping the dog’s paws upwards so that all of the pads are exposed.
Then we gently trim them with the short scissors. The hair between the pads of the feet we just need to trim until it is parallel to the pads of the feet, and the hair around the chamfer on the bottom of the feet is trimmed round. When we are repairing the hair on the bottom of the dog’s feet, we can try to trim it as short as possible, because the hair on the bottom of the feet grows faster too. This is all about how to trim the hair on the bottom of your dog’s feet.
