Continuing with the weird behavior… Horizon let me shave a good chunk of fluff off BOTH CHEEKS today! His ears totally cover it, but still, he was doing soooo well with it! Very calm and accepting of the blades going over and through his fur. I had him take a cuddle break each time he began stress panting and whenever I turned on the sheers they were held far away for a few seconds before bringing them near so that the noise didn’t startle him :) I also managed to pretty up his paws before the sheers died too 😊 I’m very proud of him for jumping up onto the makeshift “grooming table” all on his own as well.
I’ll probably try and get his neck and under his eyes tomorrow (if he lets me) and save his muzzle for another day. Who knows… One day I might even find a poodle underneath this doodle cut!
The toes are visible again! He got very tired on the table so I’ll clean them up another day, just glad I managed to get this much done seeing as he doesn’t trust me with the clippers. Also did his nails yesterday so no more clicking around the house :)
