      Hello all! My lion head Woolly has finally begun trusting me enough to brush him properly and my word, the amount of fur that’s on that brush! He’s definitely not the longest-haired lion head I’ve seen as he has short (though super, super) soft fur all over his body. The long hair just seems to be around his mane, but I was wondering how often should I be keeping his “mane” fur trimmed? And is it a job you can do solo? What grooming tools would you require? Thank you in advance!

      Sorry, I’m not sure how to get Woolly’s photo to appear

      I use hair thinning scissors to trim Podge’s, over the winter I’ve just trimmed it once, when the longest bits reached 6 ins / 15 cm, and were getting a bit close to the ground when he ran. I did it every couple of months in the summer, especially behind the ears, where it doesn’t show but does get superheated

      Gina, thanks for the advice! Is that Podge in your avatar? He’s adorable!

      It is Podge

      And here are loads of pics of Podge, if you haven’t seen the thread. The first ones were taken just after his first mane trim. It had to be cut really short as his then new gf Gina kept grooming it and I was scared she’d end up with a blockage!
