  • Schnauzer brows

    When I was taught to do Schnauzer brows I was taught to hold the brow back away from the eye and let the eyelashes fall forward and cut those lashes off then comb the brow forward and cut those. Do any of you do that?

    I cut them at the same time as I do the brows, unless I am having to leave the eyelashes long, and than I have to hold the lashes down to keep from cutting them off. When I have to save the eyelashes, it makes it harder to make nice eyebrows.

      If your dog is fat, you are not getting enough exercise!

        Unusual technique -- have never scissored brows that way, on any breed.

        How far back do you cut the eyelashes?

            I dont do it that way, but Diane it makes sense. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

                I clean up the eyelashes, I think it makes the dogs eye look cleaner/neater. But I just trim the whole eye brow together not by lifting the eybrow up. I do hold one eyebrow down with my while I shave in between the 2.

                  I don't do that. I cut them when I cut the eyebrows.

                    Schnauzer Brows the AKC Way

                    Schnauer eyes are not supposed to be big or prominent...rather, almond shaped eye by good breeding, then cut clost at outside corner of eye..angled of course longer toward inside. Take off less rather than more.Facing dog, comb eyebrows forward,but slightly outward.Length on will depend on several factors. If foreface is short,a little less eyebrow will give the effect of more length. If foreface longer than the skull, leave the yebrows slightly longer. longer brows areoften left to disguise lighter ,round, or large eyes, reducing the amount of eye seen.Never, i repeat ,(want to type caps) never trim or scoop out fur under eye.. makes them poppy...never correct. To get them to sit nicely, you can use (thinning shears ),close to eyecarefully ,just a tad..makes brows sit up nicely.I argued w/ fellow groomer taking my client once when I was duing radiation (B. Cancer) Please do not scoop fur iut from under her eyes. Oh,makes them stand out she exclaimed. No...not spoae' to stand out and be poppy!

                      Thinning shears between eyes and bridge of nose, fo' me

                      I don't shave between eyes of Schnauzers, I use thinning shears.. other dogs as well...more natural look.When i helped at AKC dog shows I would have been Shot if I used clipper between eyes..now it is just how I have always done it.

                        I was taught to do that if you want the eye to be more open and it helps to make the brow stand up more. I have one lady that wants her schnauzers eyelashes left long and trim the brows short. Weird!

                            I've had a lady want that too. I must not have done it right either time because she hasn't come back, thank goodness.

                            I was also taught to shave the bridge of the nose. With my old clients that have had it done that way for years now I still do it that way. With my new clients I don't do it that way, I've learned from this board that isn't how it is done. I'm learning.

                            I think the reason I was taught to the eyelashes the way I was had something to do with them not being bulky. After I left her shop I haven't done it that way, probably 13 yrs now. I was just curious if anyone else was taught that way. Thanks for the replys.

                              I do it if the brows are kind of limp and hang over the eye.

                              I probably do the angle wrong, but the way I do them is from the outside corner of the nose to the corner of the eye. Sometimes I will hold the inside corner of the brow (the longest part) off to the side, trim the rest of the brow shorter than I normally would, and when I comb the long piece forward it leaves them looking long, but the dog can still see.

                              I'm confused, when you say don't trim under the eyes, do you mean literally under the eyes? (Like a poodle mustach) Or the stuff that sticks up at the inside corners of the eyes?
