Which dogs should you use trimming stones and trimming knives on?

When do you not use trimming knives and trimming stones?
There is always a difference between dogs, and even if your dog belongs to the rough-haired category, it may well be that a trimmer is not for you. It may also be that you have had difficulty trimming; it could possibly be because the dog's fur is too wet, then the fur will be much too soft. A spayed or neutered dog can also have changes in its coat, making it difficult to use trimming knives and trimming stones. If you have clipped the dog first, it can also be difficult to trim. This is because the structure of the fur changes. To have a good trimmed coat, you almost always have to be able to save it.
How often should you use trimming knives or trimming stones on your dog?
It is very different from dog to dog. Some dogs' hair grows faster than others, but one thing you always have to be sure of is that you don't do it too soon. It can hurt your dog if you trim too soon. It is very normal with 3-4 times a year, but for some dogs it will be more often and for others less. You should be able to tell by your own dog's fur whether it needs a trim or whether you should wait.
