The nice thing about trimming them is they won't complain! I have clippers for Bozzie, he loves it when it's time to cut his hair. He comes and sits by me outside and just lays there. I don't know what he would do for a professional. I get a little better each time, except when I'm in a rush. It will be fine Nance!!! I wonder if groomers are finding the business hard to come by in this economy.
