You Have A Choice In Havanese Cuts

Jun 27, 2008
Havanese grooming is one of the best ways you can interact with your pet. Not only are the practical aspects of cleaning the dog and checking for signs of illness or injury taken care of, but your dog gets a lot of fuss and attention. Havanese love fuss and attention. Since that long, silky coat need Havanese cuts if they are not being shown, a chance for a haircut should be viewed by the dog as fun time and not a chore. This will make your job a lot easier.

One of the things Havanese owners must know is basic Havanese grooming. You also should know about the best Havanese cuts for your dog. Just like with people, just because we can grow longhair doesn't mean we HAVE to. Often, it is far more comfortable and convenient to get it cut. The same is true for Havanese cuts. Havanese don't like to be dirty, and a dirty dog will be very unhappy and stressed.

The Puppy Trim Havanese cut is very much like a shorter version of the long, full show coat. The tail and the part down the spine is left alone, but everything else is fair game. The goal is to make the adult Havanese look like a larger version of a Havanese puppy.

Practice makes perfect when giving Havanese cuts, so expect the first cut you give to look a bit amateurish. Be sure to leave the tail alone, but clipping around the body and face will be appreciated by the dog. Cutting off less is more in terms of looks. Don't try to force an even part down the dog's spine - just let nature take its course and cut off any hair that might be dragging in the ground.

Get all of the brushes, towels, conditioners and anything else you need for the bathroom, kitchen or where your dog's personal salon will be BEFORE you start bathing the dog. This will cut down on time and stress. Use lukewarm water - not too hot and not icy cold! Shampoo well, towel dry and comb smooth with a slicker brush to get the outer hairs and a pin brush to get the undercoat. A flea comb is good to have to check on any tiny passengers - and very small tangles.

Another Havanese haircut tip is to not debate too much about what to cut and how much - just let your instinct take care of you. It's sort of like Zen and the art of Havanese grooming! You can clean around your dog's eye and ears with soft cotton balls or special cleaning pads for a final touch. Use the conditioning spray, especially if the weather is humid.

Another Havanese haircut tip is to not force an unnatural part down the dog's spine. Just follow the natural lay of the coat. Trim the edges off to at least two inches from the dog's body. Stand back and admire the dog - even if your job was crooked. In every aspect of Havanese grooming, practice makes perfect.

You can make the process happier for them by giving them a treat given at no other time. Also, try to be patient with a nervous dog just as you would with a nervous child. Eventually, Havanese grooming time will be associated with happy time in the mind of the dog.
