I heard that it's dangerouns to cut the hair around a dog's eyes because you remove natural protection from dirt and ticks and thus those can get into the eyes and cause problems. So is it all right to cut or should it be left natural?

I've heard that point of view too. However my opinion is that the dog's own hair getting into the eye is much more likely to cause problems than a tick that possibly will never get there.

Thanks for your opinion.
