How do I cut my dogs hair myself? Or where can I learn how?

There is a grooming book called All Breed Dog Grooming. You could pick that up at a local bookstore. Also as far as equipment go to your local pet shop. PetSmart, Petco and someone will help you to find what you need. Depending on whether you want to clip or cut with scissors all of that.
