How to shave ears??
I know this has been posted many times before and I did search through previous threads but can anyone explain how I should shave my puppies ears? They are six weeks old and their ears are starting to stand on their own but I need to get the hair off. If you could post a picture of a young pup with their ears trimmed I would really appreciate it. A previous post said to shave off the top 1/3 on the inside and outside but make the outside in a V shape. I just wasn't sure how to do that.
love our addi & romeo

Here's a website with a pictue
HI, this website shows a picture of how to do it. Jon-ann's yorkshire terriers. I found it when I was learning to do my own grooming (I have 4 now). I use a small Wahl trimmer with a 1" wide blade. I tried the full size clippers when Rocky was a baby and cut his ear . When they're 8 wks I just shave the top 1/2 of their ear to reduce the weight on the ear; I start making the pretty V when they're a little older. Hold the leather on your fingers to support it & hold it flat and gently run the trimmer over it to remove the hair. Have someone else hold the pup if you need to.
Good Luck, you can do it.
