Helping to keep the mud out!

A trimmed collie foot

The finished foot!

Pie had a trim today, he is of the age (3) when he is getting extra hairy feet! Some breeds get hairier all over but the feet are the part that brings the mud and water in from outside in the winter!

I really should have taken a before picture so that you could witness the transformation, but I can show you a trimmed foot!

Last winter I only had to do his feet once and they kept neat, this is already his second trim! He didn’t mind too much, though his feet are a bit ticklish which makes him twitch from time to time, I use blunt ended scissors to ensure I don’t stab him!
