Sheltie and Collie Styles

We prefer to keep Double Coated dogs in the AKC Standard trim, lightly trimmed. But some pet owners do prefer shorter styles. Read this about Post Clipping Alopecia before you decide to cut your dogs hair short.

We are not accepting any new dogs that weigh over 75 lbs.

The video shows a Collie 11 months after shaving, his hair grew back quite well.

Clients who choose to cut their dogs hair short assume all risks of coat damage.
