Hi all,

That also can be a ticklish area Though I don't have that problem with my gsd, since he has a very short stockcoat, I did with my aussie and husky and the hair matted on my husky. A pin brush worked. If your gsd doesn't have long hair, I would first try a rake.

LOL.....Ya got me .... I usually "groom" AKA butcher my longstock in the spring or early summer with some fancy electric shears called the Oster A5 turbo electric gizmo with no guard on it and just shoot from the hip. Luckily...my girl learned to remain stationary from an early age while I trimmed her or cut her nails....a real test of patience ...mine that is.

I'm no groomer obviously but I do believe my hack jobs do make her more comfortable during the hot season....luckily, it seems to always grow back. If I'm a bit lazy...I just wing it with a pair of appropriate scissors.

LOL....well thank you.....but if I would have posted some pics of my first two longstock GSDs....you would have felt sorry for those two. Good thing their coats always grew back...
