Shaved border collie
As a general rule, dogs with double coats like the border collie should never be shaved, as it changes the way the hair grows back and may make them less.
Shaving a border collie? : BorderCollie
Why you shouldn’t shave your double-coated dog
May 8, Have any of you shaved or clipped your BC's fur short? Callie is a long haired BC/Lab mix and has very soft fur that stays oil and dirt free on its own. I'm wondering if it'll grow back just as lovely after a while if we shave her for the summer.
Description:Shaving them does not prevent this from happening. This is because all this coat you are seeing in this article has nothing to do with Nature and everything to do with selective human breeding. Keeping the coat brushed and clean more often is always more easily achieved if there is LESS of it for the owner or groomer to deal with. Outside most of the time hunting, sunning, chewing a bone, rolling in the grass and just enjoying the weather of all seasons.
