PostSubject: Cutting Hair   Mon Mar 17, 2008 12:10 pm

Okay I was thinking see how Gideon is a long haired and I dont have enough time to groom him as much as he needs, could he go to the groomers and get his hair cut? But then I heard today that Australian Shepherds die when they get there hair shaved off, not that I am shaving Gideon but would it just grow back really fast and not be worth is, or would it be okay? Very Happy Very Happy Embarassed lol!

I don't think so. It may be alright, as it's not cold now, but some breeds you can't shave them unless absolutely necessary because they have sensitive skin. Like Collies. I don't know if GSDs fit into that category though.
Personally, I wouldn't, but that's just me.

Maybie in a few months when it gets hotter... A fur-cut won't be too bad for him Wink Although his long coat is amazing

A friend of mine in Germany did this to her long coat, and when it grew back in, the hair was curly! She is now telling everyone, to not do this to a GSD!!

It was about as hot as Hades where she was, so she went as short as a short haired dog would be. Maybe that is the difference?

You should not shave or even cut a GSD's hair short. It is an insulator in the winter to keep them warm as well as helping in keeping then cool in the summer. It is not recommended cutting a GSD's hair unless absolutely necessary.
