You have to have the confidence in knowing what you're doing, yet not have so much force that you do damage. I usually hold their bottom jaws and put my thumb in their mouth so I don't have to listen to the screaming.. It's the smell that does me in! Blugh!

It's the smell that throws me over the edge.. I hold them while hubby burns, we've only done it once by ourselves without a friend to coach..... and we did not burn long enough or deep enough... mine all have scurs

You can always band the scurs, or re burn if they're still small enough.

If you shave the head it doesn't smell nearly as bad. It's that burning hair 😷
