I tried using a furminator daily on that area to help speed up the shedding, but it didn't help much. Yesterday, I got so tired of cleaning her butt, I grabbed a pair of scissors and chopped off the excess hair (despite being against ever trimming a Shiba). Ideally, I should have used those hair thinning scissors, so it would look more natural, but I don't have one and don't plan on getting one. Anyways, I think it looks okey. At least Maya's daddy didn't even notice till I told him and Maya can't complain.
