To move in the beginning, if its thick here around the ear I would thin it out first with thinning scissors but always feel with your fingers around the ear. If you once cut an ear, you’d be lucky to get nearly a dog again whit the scissors. Just a few cuts then drill the hair out and then the base.
Good girl, the top here I always take out with a thinning scissors, its kinder to the dog than stripping. And we use this broad tooth steel comb to comb out the fur loose. Good girl, that’s a good girl. I take the majority off with the thinning scissors and then finish off with the stripping knife. Don’t just carry on regardless with your scissors, always stop when stuck. You don’t remove all the hair from the air, you might do it with some of the—really trimmed breeds. Take—I use this type of stripping knife, there’s no razor blade in it and just take out a few hairs at a time using your thumb to hold the hair and then taking out the hair. The long hairs on the inside of the ear, keep your other hand on the ear, on the skins of the ear, your not pulling the skin otherwise that would be painful.
Again you want the natural look, so were not trying to make it look clipped. Your trying to sleep aren’t you? Come on, lets have another look before we do anymore, its just a quick look, just a few more hairs there and a few on the bottom. We don’t strip all the hairs out, this act as protection, to stop foreign bodies going down and at the front be very, very careful. If you clip down there or strip out too much, its very artificial look. Take the odd hair back again with the nice—on this one I used the comb. I used it away the hair goes with the dent stick to comb that way.
Just a few little hairs sticking up there, which I’m pricking with finger and thumb. When you have a new puppy, when it changes it first coat, quite often he grows almost what looks like another ear on top of here. Really wooly coat and that seldom comes off of its own accord, so the dog ends up with really thick ear flaps and I always pluck that out with finger and thumb a bit at the time as the puppy grows until its all gone. And from then I seldom get any problems. The front of the ear I leave as natural as possible, I take out finger out a little underneath.
This comb through, think, we think you can perhaps see the difference.
