How to get a ‘half shaved’ dog
You can always find the perfect half shaved dog at your local pet store.
The owner of one such shop in London, Helen Shaver, says she had to go back and forth between buying the dog, shaving her head and buying the fur.
“We were really concerned that the dog wouldn’t be comfortable with us.
We did a lot of research and went through the whole process, but we couldn’t get a half shaved head,” she told CNN.”
I was worried that we would be cutting it off before the dog was ready.
It was difficult to get it to go on a leash and we were worried that it would get stuck to something.”
She found a local animal rescue group who fitted her with a miniature hair shaver and bought her a coat and collar to go with the head, she said.
“It was great to be able to get her into a kennel,” she said, explaining the dog is half shaved when he is fully shaved.
“We had a couple of issues in the shop with the owner but it didn’t take too long to get him back.
We just bought the coat, put it on him and he was ready to go.”
She also added that she does not see the need for owners to shave their dog’s head, but added that owners should still consider their animal’s health and wellbeing.
“Our vet says it’s best to have a full haircut if you have a shaved dog, but if you’re not sure whether it’s appropriate, ask your vet,” she explained.
“If you’ve got a shaved head, it might be time to go ahead and do it, but be sure to tell them about the animal’s previous experience with grooming.
Be careful not to cut your dog’s tail too much, she added.
Shaver’s shop was not the only one that had a half-shaved dog at its store in the UK.
In Ireland, the owner of the Shaver Shave Club said he had to shave his own dog.”
There was a half shaved dog that we were doing in our shop, so we got a shaver that was the right size for that dog and he really enjoyed it,” he told the Irish Times.
He said the owner who had the dog at the shop told him it was too long.”
He’s half shaves now and it was a lot longer than the hair that he had before.
He was very happy, he was in a good mood and he wasn’t stressed at all.
“But it’s a bit of a challenge to get the dog to shave, so it wasn’t ideal.”
But he also admitted the owner had a point.
“They’re not a good breed, they’re a bit too big for the room,” he said.
