Whether you have a mellow dog or a new frisky puppy, keeping you both safe when trimming their fur is always a top priority. To keep from knicking or cutting anyone while grooming, try this tip for choosing round tip scissors from the book DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show: Everything You Need to Know, Step by Step.
For inexperienced groomers or when grooming very nervous dogs, round-tip scissors are a smart choice because they offer extra safety in case the dog moves abruptly during grooming. Round-tip scissors are great for trimming the hair around the dog’s face and around the pads.
These shears are pretty inexpensive. Check out some great options here.
