I did all the grooming on my late Schnauzer. But the coat on Boo is different. His hair his much liner and silker. I want to also tell you what im looking for as in grooming. I need suggestions. Do you think I should let a groomer groom him because of the thin hair. I'm afraid of doin it actually I would hate to get it to short. This year our grass is in bad shape some is dead and crumbly and it loves to stick to him. He was groomed just 5 days ago 2 1/2 inches long but still his hair is to long to brush it out the grass tangles in it and makes it a stuggle each time he comes in. Would 1/2 to 3/4 inch be to short and cause him to burn? I would like to find out because my other dog had thicker hair and I really didnt have this problem. I dont want him to burn or be deprived from outdoor activities. Also he has tear stains his hairs around his eyes has been kept short, hasnt really felt wet around his eyes, He has reddish dyed hair around his eyes anything speical I can do to make him look cleaner around the eyes?
