Believe it or not, mom and dad have never taken me to get professionally groomed. Since I was a pup, they have taught themselves how to groom me. Little by little and day by day they learned to trim, cut, and shave the underside of my paws. Grooming is so very important to good health and hygiene. Please do not under any circumstance groom your own dog without proper training. It took my parents weeks worth of training.
This is what my parents use to groom me!

Here is my favorite detangler comb:
And this is the brush that mom uses on me daily to keep me nice and fluffy!
For my body, my parents use 12mm clipper guard. My legs are hand cut with scissors and thinning shears. My face, head, and ears are all cut by hand and finished with thinning shears.
