About dogs who turn their head and press their face into the clipper as you come up to trim their facial hair:
They are not trying to be difficult.
This is very much a coping mechanism.
It is a way for them to be anticipatory of what your next move or requirement is of them and to accommodate you.❤️
This likely causes them a bit of overwhelm due to sensory overload.
Take a second and think about that large buzzing tool coming straight at their eyes and pressing against their face.
Try it on yourself!😉
They are doing the best they can to try to do what you want and get through something that’s making them nervous or uncomfortable.￼￼￼￼
Please do not get angry at them.
Instead, perhaps take just a mindful moment of compassion and consider coming at this from a different angle literally. It will likely help them cope a lot better and keep you both safe.
