Re: Long Coat Paws
Same problem here. I was just trimming the hair flush with the pads for fear of nicking Quinn, but that wasn't really solving the ice ball situation. So, I took him to a friend who grooms. She goes between the pads with the clippers, then fluffs the hair between the toes and uses scissors on what sticks up. This is the same kind of trim that a Golden Retriever would get. I like the tidy paw look and it makes cleanup a lot easier. I swear the hair grows back faster though!
Please don't litter. Neuter your pets!
