Trim the hair on his ?
My 5 month old Timmy has about a inch or more hair on his male part. It gets wet every time he pees. Is it okay to carefully trim it shorter ?

I noticed that the groomers do that, so I keep my dog's trimmed between grooming.

Yes. I leave a so-called "pee string" of less than an inch to direct the urine downward, away from the long chest hair (my boys are in full coat). Among the show people, some prefer the pee string, others prefer a clean belly.
It is a matter of choice.

I'm sorry I giggled...pee string.
I trim it on one of my males because his well lets just say if it's long it drips and ewww, it's not an issue for the other male so he has a "pee string" (yep giggled again!

I always get Jackson's cut short... lol. It's gross when the hair starts growing longer, and it's wet. We've never had a problem.

A pee string is what many show breeders use, especially if they have a long coat, it directs the urine away from the coat. If your dog has a short coat this isn't as important, although I know some people complain about their dogs getting urine on their tummy or inside legs. Joey's breeder leaves the string on even though Joeys coat is short now. No dribbles with a pee string! By the way, the hair doesn't have to be thick on the pee string or even very long.

I leave a pee-string on hot rod when I groom him. I angle it so it's not so wet. I leave the longer hair on the topside by his belly.
