Just a suggestion, since I've never done it myself, either (I've got 2 DSH). First time, go to the groomers and get it professionally done, maybe get kitty's claws trimmed, too, while you're there. Then do the up keep yourself, after getting the proper tools, of course. That way, it's easier to simply keep it trimmed and know what parts you need to maintain. You can also ask the groomers for tips on scissors, comb, or small hints to make the process easier for you and your kitty. That's what I'd do, but you're free to do the first time yourself if you're confident. Good luck!
