Trim dogs butt hair

Do you cut you dogs butt area hair? Allee tends to get get "stuff", clingons if you will, stuck to the long hair on the back of her legs. We were thinks about trimming it some, but wanted to see if it was something anyone else did.

I do! I started doing it after I spent lots of time trying to get the knots out of that area. Maggie is usually very patient with me, but not when I'm brushing that area or her tail. I take it down as low as I can. It certainly helps for your purpose also.

Yes. I"m not sure how my groomer friend does it, but she does a little "weeding" right around the "exit" itself. I also have her trim up his pants b/c when they get too long, they drape on the poop as he squats and I have to call him Sr. Poopy Pants.

I personally use a thinning shears right along the backs of both legs allowing the hair to naturally taper down the leg but keep it at a shorter length and I use a beard trimmers that I use on her feet bottoms to trim the area around her vaginal area due to problems she has and around her outside of the anal opening . It looks decent and verynatural, I'll get photos of the back of the legs for you tonight and it keeps the poop from sticking all over her hair!

I haven't had to do this yet but the thread title and replies did give me a chuckle.

I've had to trim at times. Mainly when she's made a big mess of herself. Pippa has very heavy feathering on her "pants" and tail so it was getting really messed up because the hair was sitting on the ground while she was pooping on it. I trimmed her a bit early summer and she's staying much cleaner now.

Lucky has heavy feathering there but generally keeps it clean. I only had to clip there once when he had a bout of diarreah. He had a real mess back there...and I cut it all off. Surprisingly...he didn't look funny.

I have started having to cut Beau's butt fur and feathers. Now that he is having trouble with his back legs he is making more of a mess.

Its funny that I see this topic this morning, yeserday evening when we got home we let Maggie out and she had a little diarrhea which ended up on her butt hair...well lets just say I had to take her up in our shower (and she wouldnt get in by herself) so I ended up getting in the sower with her, lol...it was fun but I think its time to trim hers as well I will probably just get the groomer to do it though, dont think I would do a very good job

Oh man YES! I used to hack the hell out of my last goldens bumm hairs cus he would get dingleberries in his fur. My new golden, he's got an arse full of hair like I've never seen! It's terrible! He got the runs at two in the morning and came in and I'm like, phew! I had to hose his rear! I'm going to trim them tonight as his leg fur gets in the pooh when he squats, same with his tail...
