What to do with'' wings''.
My young dog has flicks, hair on the sides of his neck that doesn't lie flat. I trimmed them off short with thinning scissors for Crufts, but all it did was expose the undercoat, so he was left with paler shadows over his shoulders. So since Crufts, I have allowed this hair to grow back, but now it's quite long and flicking out at both sides in an untidy manner.
My last dog didn't have this, his coat lay flat in this area.
How do you all think I could best deal with this? Could I strip it with my finger and thumb? Or should I just go back to trimming it off with the thinners and not worry about the light patches.
I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.
