Grooming with Clippers
Shaving the Body
- Begin at the withers, gently shave down to the base of the tail using a 3-blade clipper. This will give your pup a clean and neat body.
- Next, move to the shoulder area and shave from there to the back of the elbow joints. Continue shaving diagonally downward on both sides towards the tuckup, which is the area in front of the hind legs.
On the outer side of the hind legs, start at the loin and shave diagonally down to about three to four fingers above the stifle bend.
- Shave from the throat down to the point of the chest and between the front legs for a well-proportioned look. Don't forget to give your Schnauzer's tail some love and shave off all the fur gently.
- Leave a blade-width strip on the inner side of the hind legs to maintain a balanced look.
Shaving the Ears and Head
For the ears, shave in the direction of the fur. If you'd like, leave a small tuft at the ear tips for a touch of charm. Remove all fur from inside the ears to ensure cleanliness.
On the head, shave against the fur from the ear flap to the outer corners of the eyes. Then, shave vertically downward to achieve a polished look.
Grooming with Pet Grooming Shears
Trimming the Body
- Start by rounding your Schnauzer's feet with curved pet grooming shears. Lift the hind legs, comb the fur downward, and trim any hair extending beyond the paw pad. Then, create a semi-circular shape from the rear to the front with curved shears.
- Use a straight pet grooming shears, trim vertically to blend the shaved areas on the body with the legs. The front legs may require a bit more shaping to appear cylindrical. Ensure the roundness looks good from all angles.
For the front of the hind legs, start at the tuckup, trim a vertical line down to the stifle, and connect it to the tip of the foot, forming a natural curve.
Trimming a Heart-Shaped Muzzle for Schnauzer with Pet Grooming Scissors
Shaping the Muzzle
- Begin by trimming the fur from the forehead area to reveal Schnauzer’s eyes. Hold the eyelashes down with your thumb to prevent cutting them. Separate the eyebrow and eyelash, rounding the eyebrow backward with curved pet grooming shears. Repeat on the other side, rounding it upwards and towards the head.
- Trim the lip line to match the width of the nose's tip, and round both sides naturally upwards to create the lower half of a heart shape. Leave about one centimeter of fur below the muzzle.
- For a cute round muzzle, round naturally at a 45-degree angle on both sides. Trim the fur outside the eyes neatly.
To make the muzzle appear rounder and fuller, use thinning shears to do some fine trimming. Trim upward following the fur direction and round the corners upwards to form a smile.
The key to the heart-shaped muzzle is for its tips to align with the middle of your Schnauzer’s nose, pointing directly above and aligning with the forehead.
To round off the head, create a semicircular shape from the outside of the eyes to the front of the ears. Start by removing excess hair on both sides and then use curved shears to achieve the desired shape. If your dog's hair is sparse or has a center parting, trim towards both sides, rounding off from the front to the back.
By following these grooming instructions, you can achieve a perfect and adorable Schnauzer Asian haircut. Your Schnauzer will look incredibly cute and well-groomed, turning heads wherever you go.
