First Grooming For Our 8 Month Old Red Tri

by Jamie
(Mission Viejo, CA)


I’m looking into groomers, and would love to know the right things to ask for to get the best for our girl.

She’s an 8 month old red tri and her butt fluff is out of control. We’re in S. California so it’s HOT, but from my understanding, shaving can only lead to coat issues and overheating.

So any tips on what to ask for would be greatly appreciated!

I live in SC also I never shaved any of my babies. I just trimmed their legs and rump hair close to the body with a little shape to it like rounded on the rump and in a v on their legs. But I do shave their tummy but not past the ribs
