Hair In The Eyes of Dogs:

Hair on the bridge of a short nose grows UP, falls back towards the eye, and then touches the eyeballs.

This can make it hard to see, causes high tear production and even damages the corneas over a while.
After a couple years, black 'scars' will form and cause some serious visual impacts.
Regular trimming of the hair is very important.
Lots of times you can give treats, hold onto these dogs "beards" and buzz off the hair with a moustache trimmer.

They make trimmers with saftey blades. Take a look at them and get the Philips with the narrow head and the blunt blades.

Philips Norelco GoStyler or similar is an example of what's best for this.
Look for a moustache trimmer from Philips Norelco that has a "neck" on it.

They have blunt blades and plenty of power to get through the nose-bridge-hair quick without knicking the eyeball.

Or have the groomer do it. That's my favorite idea.

Philips Series 5000 Norelco Electric Cordless One Pass Beard and Stubble Trimmer Philips Series 5000 Norelco Electric Cordless One Pass Beard and Stubble Trimmer

This is not the cheapest nor the most expensive trimmer that will last a long time, doesn't have a cord, and can get through a dog's coat or beard.

"Best choice all around" considering all features.

Available at Amazon. Can be sourced locally.

Have you seen these?

These can track your pet (or kid) in real time and unless they get the thing off their collar, you can find your pet. Highest rating on Amazon - reliable and again, unlimited range. (It uses the internet)

Put one on your pet soon, and cut your chances of losing your pet.

Long range, waterproof Pet Location GPS Tracker.

Something else I found for my dog "Ajax" that's cool:

Sporn Dog Halter STOPS "pulling and tugging" NOW. (Link)

This is what I use now, with my dog Ajax. I used to use the Gentle Leader, but I didn't like including his face in the thing. Now, this just goes around his chest and he DOES NOT PULL ANY MORE. It's great! Amazon.com has it.

You can buy a fat bundle of 'wet wipes' with Cetaphil and I'd recommend it. They're great for cleaning healing wounds, dirty ears, cleansing around some eyes, under-tails, surgery sites, sores.
