Lauri & The Gang Cutting the hair on the bottom of the feet is allowed in UKC.

I'm not sure if they would DQ someone that cut the hair on the TOP of the feet (the floofies that coaties get between the toes).

Andaka I have finished many champions without trimming any of them.

Neatening up of the paw pads is allowed. It's just considered good hygiene and animal husbandry. All of my dogs have paw pads trimmed

Liesje If we're talking about a GSD, then no you don't trim them at all. I'm talking about something like a Portuguese Water Dog that is usually shown with a lion cut.

Ok so like the hair on the paws?
