If he went from a whole year's worth of coat to short.. he's probably just feeling VERY strange compared to what he's used to! You have to understand how different he must feel, especially when he was never groomed before. He doesn't have the warmth of the fur he's used to. If he was matted at all, then the pulling on his skin is suddenly gone. He's feeling air on his skin that he probably couldn't before.

Also, are people reacting differently to his new look? That can cause a dog's behavior to change after grooming. And the process may very well have been a little traumatizing, not because of the groomer, but because he went a YEAR before getting introduced to it.

I'd keep an eye on the ears, but wouldn't worry about it if no signs of infection come up.

Getting him groomed more often so that it's not such a big shock to him should help in the future.
