|ahhh, grinchy toes, my biggest pet peeve!!
Seriously, can't stand the toe-tufties! I always trim out all the hair from the bottom of the foot, since all that does is gather snow and dirt and foxtails and burrs and all sorts of other bad things. Toe hair on the top is brushed backwards and trimmed level with the rest of the hair, so that when it 'falls' back it looks like it never even grew. I use curved shears for that part - straights work too, but curves mean I can get the right look with fewer snips.
If you can't trim the hair on your own, many shops will do a quick toe-trim (and ears and privates, at ours) for a fraction of the cost of a full grooming. Always worth a call or two to find out how much your local shop would charge.
