    Unhappy Shaved Husky

    i work at a groomers and the other day my boss shaved off two huskies with a 10 blade. i nearly cried when i saw them, they were down to the skin, i have been grooming for around 3 years, she has around 25 years experience. now i would never ever shave a husky, in my opinion their coat is there to protect them from the elements, she is of the opinion that now they will be cooler ( and sunburned to a crisp). what do others think about this.? Incidently the owner was by no means impressed with the state of his precious dogs.

    WTF did she do this???????????????

    25 years experience has taught her to shave a husky? I'm dumbfounded, Miss Jayne. What did the owner do say? Did owner order them to be clipped down like that?
    OMG!!!

    What on earth was your boss thinking?

    Surely owner didn't pay? I'm flabbergasted at this one.

    Agree with Pugger there - why a trim at all? They were huskies, not poodles.

    Understand your wanting to get out. My bet is that most of her customers will end up following you Miss Jayne.

    OMG!!!! I would be very very upset if my Husky had been shaved. Furious even! You don't even "trim" Huskies.

    Their coat acts as an insulator against the cold and the heat (within reason eg Don't walk them in the hottest part of the day) it also affects the waterproofing of the coat as well. Below is a caption from my Huskies thread (of which I am the only member lol)

    They have a double coat, this means that it has a wooly undercoat that serves as insulation against cold or heat, and a layer of longer, harsher outer coat that grows through the under coat. All double coated breeds shed. Bitches will usually shed twice a year about 6 weeks after a season and males once a year.


    I would never have paid but then again i wouldn't have my Husky cliped. I think if you have owned or own a Husky you should know what is required for grooming. Gosh what more do you say?

    Good luck with starting your own business!
