I gave my Brussels Griffon a summer haircut today. Not a traditional Brussels clip, but I don’t worry about what’s correct for his breed standard. Baby Brussels has eye problems so it’s important to keep his face short. He has arthritis in his front legs so it’s difficult for him to stand on three legs while clipping or scissoring his legs… so I don’t ask him to. 

Keeping in mind what’s best for my Brussels, this is what I came up with…

#7F (against the grain) schnauzer clip w/no eyebrows
#7F in reverse on top of head and sides of face.
