8 Reasons Why NOT To Shave Your Dog | ekcgrooming
Just in case you need some good reasons to back you up when someone wants to get their border collie or husky shaved.
It's a little bit unclear about what you should be doing with the wooly coat dogs like poodles.
But the main point is about not shaving GR, GSD, BC, Aussie Shepherds, Shelties etc.
I think even if part of the coat needs to be removed for an operation - shaving the rest of it is not a good idea.
