Shave-Down Release

BY ACCEPTING SERVICES YOU ARE CONFIRMING YOU HAVE READ THIS DOCUMENT AND HAVE AGREED TO ABIDE BY OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES


------

What you need to know prior to shaving your dog / the common myths:

Here is a great resource regarding shaving double coated breeds and the science behind the risks/benefits. As always we encourage you to do your own research before moving forward with any sort of professional care.


What are the risks of shaving my dog? These include (but are not limited to):

-Increased risk of sun burn

-The coat not growing back or growing back in patches (usually related to an underlying medical issue)

-The coat growing back a different color/texture

-Increased risk of skin cancers

-Skin problems (irritation, rashes, etc.)

-Difference in behavior (dog may become lethargic or embarrassed, or may act "off" or "clingy" for up to several says)


What we recommend:

Blissful Pet Grooming is managed by experienced groomers who can help determine what is the best course of action for a dog. A regular grooming schedule, de-shed treatment, and other remedies are available that are great alternatives to shaving a dog. However, we will not refuse to shave a dog unless there is serious risk of injury or it is unsafe to do so should the pet parent request it. We highly encourage online research so that a pet parent can make an informed decision on whether or not to shave a dog. Should you choose to move forward with the shaving process, Blissful Pet Grooming is not liable for the effect it may have on your dogs’ skin or re-growth of the coat.
