Re: [stephee78] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, Stephanie,

You have to be very careful when you use the cotton bud to clean gary's ear. Don't let the cotton stuck into gary's ear loh. I used to do so TongueUnsure... Try to buy the cotton bud with good quality, although will be a bit expensive but it is worth.

I think that all the Schnauzer's coat of their body and fore head is curly while they grow long. Yippi's too. I always like to view the picture of the schnauzers Wink. You can get Yippi's pictures is in the photo gallery.

Hi Eliza,

I actually took Gary video but is really difficult to take, every time I wanna record, he run over to me and sit on my lap, so I have garb his toy and throw it to another side so that he will be away from me but after he garb his toy he run back to me again. So naughty boy…


He is about 4 or 5 months he still doesn’t know the way to do his business, is was so strange. Sometime he knows it and sometime he doesn’t, at least once a day in the living room and the rest is in the toilet. My dad was so mad about it, I really dunnno what I can do. Unsure



Regards,

Stephanie

Hi, Stephanie,

Ya loh, I also very difficult to take yippi's photo too. Most of the times I will have to hold a biscult on my left hand and the camera on my right hand Wink. So from the photo you can see that yippi's eyes are always focus on my left. ha ha Sly...

Luckly, yippi is now totally done his business in the collect place, his crate (2 out of 5) or the toilet (3 out of 5). I trained him to pee and poo in the crate too is b coz sometime the bath room's floor is very wet or occupied by someone, so he have to pee or poo in the crate. You should take some time to train gary and be patient. Gary will do the things well like yippi, b coz they are Schnauzer Wink .

Re: [ashley] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, Ashley,

Umm... Actually I am not doing so well in bathing Yippi Unsure. I will bath his face too, but had read some articles that we should not let the water get in out furkid's eye, ear and nose. But I really don't know how to hahdle his loh... but I already try my best to be very careful while bathing his face.

Yes, I will pluck the hair inside yippi's ear. I have to do so, b coz there are many hairs cover over yippi's ear hole. Our trainer said that if we didn’t pluck the hair off then this would be a good living place for the mite or bacteria Crazy. I will pluck a small amount at once. I am not so sure about shih tzu, but I think it should be same for all the dog/pup. You better check that if heihei’s ear hole is cover over with hairs. If answer is yes, I think you have to do so too… Probably you have to ask for advice from the shih tzu professional.

Re: [ashley] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Ashley,

The liquid ear cleaners are used to clean out the wax buildup inside.(This is the smelly stuff..Yucks!) There are 2 ways to clean/remove the wax. One is by mechanical means using a cotton bud that is soak in a ear cleaner. As the dog's ear canal is not straight but rather like an L-shape with a right angle bend before reaching the eardrum, it is normally quite safe to use the cotton. Personally we do not use the cotton bud but rather we use an hemostat (kinda like a scissors but no cutting edges, instead it has a grip to pull hairs) We wrap the cotton around the hemostat tips and soak some ear cleaner or (frontline if we find ticks inside) to clean the insides of the ear.

Recently however during the grooming demo in Singapore, the groomer showed us her technique of cleanin ears using a liquid call Ear Zap. It is alcohol based so it evaporates completely away and really clean the ears. She uses a syringe and simply squirts in inside the ears several times to flush out the waxy residues. Simple and efficient.

Re: [arthur] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

now this is interesting..
  • Frontline, I've just start using it for my dog this week.. and what i did was just to pour it behind my dog's neck and leave it there.. is this correct? How long before the next application is needed and after applying it, how long before would you recommend to bath the dog?
  • Would it be harmful to soak the cotton with frontline and clean our dog's ear?
  • Where do we usually purchase the hemostat from as I agree that cleaning the dog's ear is not very easy and visible.
  • The pet shop owner asked me to spray the liquid directly to my dog's ear and leave it there before cleaning, my dog got really irritated and i suppose this is not a good thing to do, right? As i wouldn't like someone spraying liquid directly into my ears as well!
  • Jaz is a silky terrier and i simply don't see much hair in her ears, so i suppose plucking them or applying ear powder is not necessary in this case?

Re: [ashley] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Ashley, the hemostat is not sharp at the edge, it's actually quite blunt. just roll the cotton around it to look like cotton bud and clean the ears i suppose. Yeah, I've started using Frontline the other day, what i did was just to pour the liquid behind jaz's neck and let it dry, right?

Re: [jaz] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Jaz,

To answer your queries..
  • Frontline, I've just start using it for my dog this week.. and what i did was just to pour it behind my dog's neck and leave it there.. is this correct? How long before the next application is needed and after applying it, how long before would you recommend to bath the dog?
    • Looks like you are using the Spot On version. However for a small breed like Silky Terriers, personally I would rather use the spray as I feel this would give better coverage. However, there's no harm in using the Spot-on version. Typically it lasts for at least 3 weeks and maybe up to 6 weeks. Generally we bath the dog first and later apply the frontline. Once applied, wait between 2-3days before the next bath.
  • Would it be harmful to soak the cotton with frontline and clean our dog's ear?
    • None so far from my personal experiences.
  • Where do we usually purchase the hemostat from as I agree that cleaning the dog's ear is not very easy and visible.
    • Most pet shops will carry this tool. If not, try the vets. Sometimes they stock them as well.
  • The pet shop owner asked me to spray the liquid directly to my dog's ear and leave it there before cleaning, my dog got really irritated and i suppose this is not a good thing to do, right?
    • I would only spray an alcohol based cleaner directly into the ears as it will evaporate completely. As for getting irritated, well, it's really a matter of getting used to it I suppose.
  • Jaz is a silky terrier and i simply don't see much hair in her ears, so i suppose plucking them or applying ear powder is not necessary in this case?
    • Can't really comment on this as I am not familiar with the Silky Terrier breed standards. However as a general rule, the insides of most breed's ears do look cleaner when plucked cleaned of hairs. However I personally leave a wee bit of hairs behind to maintain the natural wicking action to draw any moisture out of the ears.


Hope this helps. Rdgs Arthur

Re: [elizatye] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Eliza

How are you? Gary Know where to do his business now but one thing he started to bite thing like shoe and thing that can bite, even the door too ... until one day he bite one of my dad shoe and my dad was so mad, Gary was so scare he ran under the chair and hide but my dad just carry the chair up and pull him out and start scolding and hit him... pity him .. He must be really scared cause he did not make a noise when he got scold and hit .....Pirate ... Really dunno what to do about...

He actually know that he is not suppose to do that but he still do it... every time he did something wrong. I scolded him, give him the seriuios look and he knows it.. His head started to look down and sit quietly and give me those innocent look...

Is Yippi like that.. or is it boy are more naughty ...

Regards,

Stephanie

Re: [stephee78] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, Stephanie,

Same thing happed to Yippi too. He likes to bite things, like slipper, clothes, tower, tissue, plastic bag, newspaper, plant and everything can be find in the floor. When we drop something to the floor, we have to pick it up in very fast speed, or else it will be disappear, then we can see Yippi chewing something in the corner and the thing is in his mouth already UnsureCrazySlyLaugh ... Every time he bite something that not suppose to bite, I will scold him and replace the things with his chewing toys ...

I think not only Schnauzer, most puppy like to bite things especially shoes. Some of the pet shop is selling some puppy toys in shoes’ shape. But had advised by someone not to buy this type of toys for our fur kids b coz he will think that the things in this shape (our shoes), is their toys, could be bitted.

Yippi is very lucky, all the members in my family seldom scold and hit yippi b coz they love him very much. My sister and me be the 'bad man', only we will hit and scold him. Ya, Yippi will know that I am scolding him too and will sit or lying down on the floor quietly and showing his innocent face. I always cannot tahan his innocent face and keep smiling. Then he will know that I am no longer angry already and goyang-goyang his tail and come to me. I know that sometime I am too manja him but I really can’t angry at his pity look Tongue. But one thing is when I raise the newspaper roll, he will stop what he is doing.

Hey, don't worry, Gary is still a puppy Smile. Be patient and give him a proper training.

Smile Eliza

Re: [elizatye] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Eliza

You are right, that most of the puppy is like that but I think male puppy is more active, female is a lot better. This is my first time raise a male puppy. But I can see the different between female and male. Female is a lot quiet and they always wan you to touch her and etc …. But male when you try to touch him, he will start playing with you, they are like very active wanna play all the time.



I think we should buy those toys that look like a shoe, which will confuse them of which is allowed and which is not.



I really cannot tahan their innocent look too, but no choice have to do it else he will continue the same mistake. Me too I will start smiling.Sly



Yupp have to be patient just like raising a kid Tongue

Stephanie

Hi, Arthur,

I was done my first grooming (trimming only) to Yippi yesterday Cool. Really happy and can’t wait to share with uncle Arthur leh. But so pity of Yippi b coz his mom had accidentally clip his ear till bleeding Pirate. Didn't bought the powder you mentioned, immediated used the ice to stop bleeding. Sakit yippi’s ear, but sakit his mom’s heart...

Ho~~i… It is not easy to trim a schnauzer leh, the most difficult part is the ear, the face and the belly area. It took me almost 3 hours to complete the grooming, trimming only loh.... Frown No wonder the groomer charge so expensive for grooming a schnauzer.

Will post the photo for uncle Arthur's comments when the photo is ready Tongue.

Re: [elizatye] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Eliza!

Congrats on taking your first step into self-grooming Smile! Much of the Schnauzer charm is lost when the doggie is not groomed properly. A well groomed schnauzer is one of the smartest looking breeds around which is a source of joy and pride for the owner..

We all learn thru mistakes...Tongue Giving a pet groom is a good start. As you have found out, knowing how to groom is one thing, learning to control or handle the doggie is another. And yes, the face is one of the challenging areas to groom especially the eyebrows. One mistake and oops! the result is difficult to hide...Unsure

Do post the pics..especially if you have the before and after pics. Yippi must be soo handsome now!

Re: [elizatye] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

HI Eliza..

Happy to hear that you groom for your Yippi .. i think is really difficult to groom for Gary cause he will move around and turn here and there, especially his face and neck.

Last Weekend i went to Genting with Gary he was so happy, he run around at the Out door car park infront of the Genting Hotel. We paly hide and seek. SO cute ... When he saw a group of people coming toward him he will start barking and but after that he start playing with them. After the group left another couple is a Malay come along... he thought ppl wanna play with him again , so he run toward them. Silly boy ...Laugh

By the way, i want to upload Gary picture to the Photo Gallery, but i'm not sure how to upload, please advise. Thanks

Regards,

Stephanie

Re: [stephee78] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, Stephanie,

Wow, so lucky of Gary, enjoyed the cold weather in Genting Cool. Which hotel were you staying in Genting. They allowed you to bring Gary in meh?? Please show me how, may be I can bring Yippi along next time. When Yippi meet with the stranger, he will bark too. But he not means to fight. If the people say hello to yippi, yippi will be very happy and just shake shake his tail and play with them Smile. But most of the time the people will go away Frown.

Yah loh! Not easy to groom yippi. I was not using the grooming table, I just used a normal table, Yippi was move around and turn here and there too. Ha Ha Ha.... When I was doing the grooming, this sound you can heard in my house, “sit sit yippi… stay yippi… sit sit… come come… kuai lah…yippi ~~~~” (repeat and repeat....) SlySlySly.

To upload picture to the photo gallery, first…… you have to register Cool. You must have you photos in jpg format (not sure can be other format or not, for example bitmap). Then you click on the “Upload Photos” on the right top corner in the page. Select and enter the necessary data. To include the photo, click on the “Browse” button, select the photo you want to upload, click on “Open” button. Then click on “Upload/Submit” button in the bottom of the page. The photo is uploaded. Then you have to wait for the approval from the web master.

Happy uploading Smile
