|I have seen many shaved down dogs here, Huskies, Golden's, Shiba's, and more. They all had the exact same cut, shaved to the skin except around the head, feet and a tuft on the tail. I guess that's the lion cut. I've also seen a couple of these shaved dogs with a nasty sunburn...the poor dogs were obviously in pain.
That was the number one reason why I didn't want to shave Tasha, I was afraid she would easily sunburn, plus I don't like the look of certain dogs when shaved. But, when I finally realized I had to shave her because of extreme matting, I decided to do it myself because I didn't want her shaved to the skin. I bought a dog razor, set it to one inch and did my best to shave her along the contour of her body. As this had been the first time I'd ever shaved a dog, she looked pretty good! There are some places where I had to cut to the skin, but that was on the belly and back legs, so not too bad. So, she does still have fur to protect her from the sun, which I'm happy about.
Hopefully I won't ever have to shave her again or any future dogs that I own.
