Hi all I am going to have to start clipping Toby - little shih poo. He still weighs about 4 1/2 to 5 lbs very small little guy.

I wasn't going to trim him but he has started having problems with poop sticking to the long hair on his legs as I have scissor cut the hair from around his bottom area but the leg hairs are so long they cover it all up and the poops are starting to stick to them so I'll have to bite the  bullet and start clipping him.

My problem is that he is so small esp feet I don't want a really BIG clipper or trimmer esp for feet and face area.

I am not sure if they have any small enough for him or not but thought maybe one of you guys might know of one that would work out for him.
I don't mind buying a clipper for his body (a little bigger) and a smaller for his feet face etc are but this one will have to be very small. The smallest I can get.

I thought they used to make really tiny little mustache clippers that would probably work great but I haven't been able to find one .

Any suggestions are Greatly Appreciated.
Thanks
mel and Toby

I'm sure they must have them, but if you have trouble finding them....there is a cheap combo razor & clipper personal grooming tool for women on the market that might do.   Wink

I got a small Conair trimmer with different hair lentgh attachments for Trooper's feet. It was about $15 at Burlington Coat factory. Its' orange with a grey stand if you want to look for it. If you can't find it online, I will be near BCF on Wednesday & can look to see if they still have it.

I use a cordless mustache trimmer for all butt trims. It's small, reasonably quiet, and has tips that are rounded and close together so I don't have to worry about cutting into sensitive skin. I got it at Target for about $20.

This is the newer model of the one I have:

Thanks guys thats a lot of help. I just kept looking at the dog clippers and they are WAY to large to trim him around his feet, face etc. But I think these suggestions you all gave are just the ticket.
Thanks again I really appreciate it.
