Labrador needs to be trimmed because his coat is thick.
But only a simple trim is necessary, not special grooming for styling.
How to cut the Labrador’s hair.
Before trimming the hair, you should first bathe Lara, using Sargent’s mild shampoo to wash, dry and help the dog to comb the hair. The skin surface has been shed to remove the hair, the inner layer of fluffy hair searched smoothly after the start of trimming. When trimming, you can choose to use a small comb to comb the hair up and then cut it properly with scissors. This will prevent the scissors from stabbing Lara’s skin like a human haircut.
After Lara’s whole body is trimmed, the hair on the bottom of his feet and toenails should be cut. Generally, you can choose special nail clippers and files to decorate. Parents hold the Labrador’s feet with their hands and carefully identify the area that needs to be cut, quickly cut the toenails, and then use a file to trim them into a rounded shape.
Special care should be taken when trimming the hair on the bottom of Lala’s feet and between the toes, using small scissors or home portable electric clippers. First, break Lala’s toes by hand to expose the hair on the bottom of the feet, then take small scissors or home-use portable electric clippers to remove the excess hair. The hair between the dog’s toes should be trimmed with scissors.
Labrador summer to shave?
Labradors don’t need to be shaved in the summer because dogs don’t have a lot of sweat glands and rely on their tongues and foot pads for heat dissipation. When the tongue is sticking out and panting, the dog’s saliva will evaporate quickly, thus taking away the heat from the body, followed by a small number of exocrine sweat glands at the foot pads, which can carry out a small amount of sweating, so the owner can consider shaving the hair at its toes. In addition, you can also prepare more clean drinking water for him, and if necessary, you can turn on the air conditioner or electric fan to cool him down.
Labrador is a short-haired breed, compared to long-haired dogs, heat resistance is higher. Although Labrador has a double layer of hair, every spring and summer, it will begin to change hair, the winter of the fluffy hair will be replaced with thin, coarse hair so that the body will be more relaxed, so there is no need for exceptional shaving, especially not shaved, otherwise it will not only hurt the skin but also may make the dog appear inferiority complex. In summer, measures such as ice pads or hydration are best to cool down.
Labrador facial hair needs to be cut often
- 1. The hair on the Labrador’s face is very long and can quickly get stuck in water and food residue, making the hair knotted and dirty. Therefore, it is necessary to see Labrador’s face.
- 2. Long hairs on the lip edge and jawline are useless and detract from the appearance. They should be cut off. When trimming, press the lips first so as not to cause injury by sudden movement.
- 3. Hollowing the hair inside the ears will make the Labrador as comfortable as possible in the summer heat. The Labrador’s head is long and somewhat short. Shave along its skull. Take care to separate the Labrador’s ear hair from his ear hairs. Do not shave the ear hairs.
- 4. Trim the ears properly. If you want it to look round, don’t cut it too short around the base of the ear, depending on your preference.
