It’s never a fun task to Shave the Dog, but it must be done three or four times a year or the matts and tangles become too much. The shedding is a PITA, too.
It’s not easy – Sabu the Crazy Helper Dog just can’t sit still, especially if grooming is involved. She would much rather be covered in mud and pine needles, a wild creature on her own. The trim always looks a bit hacked for a week or so, but it’s so worth it!
