|The undercoat comes in first and has to be carefully cared for or it will get damaged. The guard coat is often dull because it was tipped during the shave.
Some groomers will talk about how shaved dogs get more matted and worse every year, that isn't shaving, it is neglect by the owner. If you think about it, it is pretty unlikley that shaving would damage or change a hair folocle, how could it?
What really bothers me is people telling others that the dog is ruined and will never be the same again. Well I was shaved, (do fur faeries die if the shave was due to mats and a badly damaged coat?)I was never ruined and my coat has come back over the last two years.
Huskies do look odd shaved. I was completely white under my guard hair. It looked like someone had put my head on a different dog and I did get ugly while it was coming back.
I don't think everyone who has a husky gets on because of the beautiful coat. We have personalities that don't quit, a great sense of humor, and are very smart. (maybe not biddable but very smart)Don't forget our adorable woo woo, howls, and the willingness to talk.
