Should I allow my groomer to trim off my dog´s whiskers?

Trimming a Dog's Whiskers

Some exhibitors will trim the whiskers of their dogs for show purposes. So if you take your dog to the groomer and he trims your pooch's whiskers, it may not be that unusual. However, doing so may limit a canine's senses since a canine uses his whiskers as a way to hunt and orient themselves to their environment. If you'd rather not have your dog's whiskers snipped, make sure you let your groomer know ahead of time.
