What we’re going to do now is we’re going to clip the ear. Now, you want to take those down fairly short and you would normally clip these about three days before you actually want to show the dog, just to let the ear settle down and to let the hair grow a little bit.
With the clipper, lay the ear leather on the palm of your hand and work straight down the ear leather. Now there’s nothing much that you can do wrong going down here, it’s on the inside of the air that you have to be really a little bit careful because there are little flaps and things that if you do feel--you could actually nip the side of their ear.
So we’re just going to gently remove all the back hair. Flip the ear leather over and we’re going to again work up the base of the ear. And quite often this does tickle and they don’t like it very much. So this is why he’s going to struggle a little bit. If you decide that--or if your dog decides he doesn’t like this very much, you can actually take that down with thinning shears a little bit just to help you out.
Just switch this off. Okay so, that has cleared a lot of it but what we need to do is we need to tidy up around the edges of the ears. And this is a part of the ear--some parts that people actually die when they actually start to trim them because you actually need to get quite close around to the ear. So, if you find it’s more convenient, lean the dog against you so that you’ve got a good, firm hold on him. Pick your scissors up, straight scissors these are, not thinners, and trim around the edge of the ear.
Now ears are terrible things if you cut them, they do bleed and they generally don’t stop so be careful as you go. If you use your thumb, you can actually feel the corner of the ear or the edge of the air and you should actually be able to feel where you need to trim to.
