|I've heard about dogs who acted very differently after being shaved down. I even had an acquaintance with a St. Bernard who she had shaved for the summer (bad idea to shave a double coated dog anyways, but that's beside the point) and afterwards he didn't want to be seen. He'd look for places to hide.
Some say dogs don't know or don't care what they look like, because they're dogs and they're not self-aware, or something like that... but I disagree. The way some dogs act right after they've been groomed... some prance around the place after transforming from an ugly walking dust bunny in to a nicely groomed dog, others sulk and try not to be seen. It depends on the dog, but I really do believe they're capable of loving or hating their hairdos the way we love or hate ours, depending.
I'm not saying he definitely hates it and that's why he's been acting this way, but if that is the cause then it could take a little bit before he's gotten over it. He will get over it though, eventually.
