Some breeds of dog grow hair in the ears that need to be removed for hygiene reasons. There is some controversy among veterinarians and groomers about this topic. At Doggie Playmates , we may pluck ears that need to be reduced of hair unless we are asked not to by you. With that said, we will only do it if the dog allows us to. If the dog is too squirmy for plucking we will trim, or we will stop because more damage can be done by continuing.
