Default New owener/groomer needs advice.


I have a long haired Chihuahua and a recently aquired wire hair Terrier mix puppy (9 mos). My Chihuahua definately needs a trim on his underside and feet. The rest of his hair is long but neat. The Terrier is fine for now but I've already had to trim his facial hair with scissors so he could see clearly. I'm sure he'll need more work soon.

So here's my situation, I bought an Oster A5 and I already had the plastic blade guides (which I no longer use when clipping my own hair). The A5 came with a #10 blade which is 1/16.

* Should I shave my Chihuahua all over or just do his underside, back end and feet?
- If i do him all over, what length guard (or what metal blade should I buy)?
- Should I use the #10 alone for under/back/feet?

* Same question for when it comes time for the terrior.

Thanks in advance!
Any additional advice would be appreciated!
