How do you trim the newfs paws? Well I'm gonna show you how i do! Maybe I shall say try to show you :o)
Sure, it can be tough enough to trim the newfs paws...
especially when they are so ticklish :o)
| Here you can see a untrimmed newf paw.
How the fur is sticking out all over the paw.
You shall try to get the paw as round as possible!
| On top of the paw.
Brush the fur up with a comb or a brush.
Then trim with a thinning shears so that all the fur that is sticking out gets trimmed off.
Under the paw
- Trim off all the fur that sticks out.
Remember to follow the paws shape when you trim!
| The side of the paws
Same thing goes here!
Follow the shape of the paw and trim -
Strive to get as round a paw as possible.
| The back of the paw -
It's rather good if your dog stands up now!!
Unfortunately my dog is a real lazybones :o) And he thinks that I can turn around, whether I like it or not, because he is NOT standing up!!
So I let the lazydog lay down :o)
Here you comb the fur down! Then hold with your hand around the leg and the fur, you can now see how much you need to trim. The fur shall only reach down to the ground, all fur that reachs longer you trim off!
A tip! Is to cut the fur a bit diagonally (upwards) Which looks very nice!
| Between the pads of the paws -
Here it is very important that you trim off as much fur as possible!
Partly because that he dog gets a lot of dirt in there, and because here is a risk that the dog gets a fungus disease!
The dog can also slip, if he has to much fur between the pads of his paws!
I prefer to use a blunt scissors when I trim the fur under the paws.
Because they are very ticklish ;o)
And if you are unlucky your dog will kick backwards and an accident can happen :o(
| Finished front paw
- After some kicks in the owners head =O)
The paw is finally ready!
