  1. Collie coat types

    General Dog Forum
    I'm getting a smooth collie, but the breeder had 3 coat options to pick from: rough, smooth, and classic working line farm collie (Moderate Coat). How does the last one look? I tried googling photos but didn't find anything. It sounds interesting though.

  4. Animal Palace in WPB shaved my American Eskimo Toy without permission

    Attention All New Members
    I actually requested they trim an inch off her coat and they shaved her down to the bare skin. When I went to pick up my Eskie, the owner Joyce stated she tried to use a 5 blade (in lieu of scissors) and kept getting streaks. The owner of Animal Palace had the nerve to say she thought it looked...

  8. Can't shave an American Eskimo

    Dog Grooming Forum
    My dog Koby is an American Eskimo and his coat is still extremely thick and fluffy at this time. Even if it's a pretty normal 55 degree day, he still appears to be exhausted and too hot after his walks. I've been told that I'm not suppose to shave these double coated Northern breeds, so what can...
  9. Nervous of Bathing

    Dog Grooming Forum
    My dog is a Rottweiler/Bulldog/Bloodhound/Mastiff Mix, 1 year old, and still growing. He's terrified of baths, and while it's not a 'dangerous' situation, it does leave me more of a mess to clean up. I would usually try to promote it with encouragement, but Gonzo doesn't respond to treats - he...

  13. What does a puppy's coat tell you?

    General Dog Forum
    I'm curious about whether the texture of my puppy's coat is indicative of his breed mixture. Obviously, some dogs have very soft, short fur, similar to that of a cat. And, some dogs have a coarse coat, German Shepherds or Australian Cattle Dogs come to mind. And, of course, there are the...
