I am new to this forum and I am mainly seeking out some advice for trimming my 7 month old male Tibetan Spaniel.
Louie's coat is starting to get long and I understand that they are a low maintenance dog breed, but I am just not sure what to do in regards to trimming him.
He gets regular weekly brushes and 2-3 week washes but I am finding that the coat on his tummy and around his testicles mat very easily. Obviously his coat around his bum is long but I don't feel comfortable with clipping/trimming him myself. I would hate for something to go wrong.
My other issue is that if I take him to a groomer, would they know what needs to be trimmed? As in, I don't want them to trim his overcoat as this is needed to keep him warm during winter. Tibetan Spaniels aren't very popular here in Perth so I am concerned that if I do take him to a groomer, they will trim everything.
Would anyone have any advice? Is grooming with clippers fairly easy? I think seeing as I am nervous about it, that I probably shouldn't do this myself cause I still want him to look cute.
