    Hi Felipe, make sure your puppy is already used to the sound of the clipper. You can do this by turning the clipper on and slowly introducing it to your puppy. It’s like letting your puppy feel that the clipper will not hurt her. In case you get a positive reaction from your pup, praise her or give her treats as a reward.

    You can use scissors but if your pup is not used to trimming the hair in the lips, I suggest you use a clipper just like in this link: http://petnessandbeauty.com/product_info.php?cPath=68_73&products_id=365
