    I trim mine and they get around much better. I am convinced that they appreciate it!!

    Are you going to be showing them? If not, then I can say that I have Silkies and when they get old enough, I plan to trim so that I can see their eyes. Then I will know they can see.

    I just put myself in their shoes.
