    A:

    When shaving a dog, start at the front of the animal, go with the grain of the hair and do not cut too close, leaving at least 1 inch of growth. Be sure to let the clippers rest every few minutes. If they run too long, the clippers will get hot, which means there is a risk of burning the dog.
