Grooming Questions

When you groom your golden, do you trim up the wild growing hairs on his eye brows and snout. I know we did that with Dobies we owned but they we show dogs and it was expected as part of the show grooming,

Grooming Questions

We use something called "horse shavers" for the whiskers and wild hairs in the face. Hope that helps.

Are you talking about the whiskers Calistar? I think most people leave whiskers on, unless they are showing in the conformation ring ~ and even then, some leave them on there too.

Murphys eyebrows were very long when young and have shortened on their own. My vet said not to cut them,,,,,he needs them!!! I guess they have a protection warning for his thought.
