Hey everyone. I am hoping someone can help.
As you know Rexi is a fluffy pug, he suffers from terrible tear stains caused by his long fur touching his eyes; what i need is a suggestion how to get rex to let us trim his facial fur. I have managed it once properly, he allowed me to trim his chin and with a little help I manged to trim his around his eyes; but since then we have had no real success; i hvae tried creating a quiet enviroment, he had been napping in the guest room on his favourite blanket, i lay next to him, gently stroking him and we talked nicely and calmly, as soon as i picked up the sissors he put his head down, each time i would try to pick it up he moved; if i try to hold him he just moves his head about as soon as i am about to trim. Strange part is, if his eyes are irrtating him, he will allow me to wipe fur away with my fingers and use a eye lotion wipe to remove glupe staying quite still as i do it; i wish my finger had magic hair trimming abilities too!
He also hates having his nails trimmed; i can play with his feet all day, but as soon as the clippers come out, he whips his paw away just as i am about to snip!
