Default Who shaves their dogs in the spring?

So my little girl Quila is not liking having the garage to herself after putting the Deuce down. She is acting strange and lonely. Wife thinks we have her as a house dog. She is 6 years old. Shepard collie cross. Hairy as all get out!! She sheds like crazy and I am always vacuuming the garage floor because of the fine balls of hair floating around. I told my wife that I think she sheds enough let alone bringing the dog inside. So I am to the point of thinking about shaving her (the dog Badger the dog...) I have read about the double coats and why not to do it but I just don't think I can live in my house and tolerate the fine floating dog hair form my little girl. Thoughts??

We have an American Eskimo that is not a massive shedder, but still some. Our local groomer has a process she calls 'blow out' where they don't actually shave him, but blow out the loose hair down to the scalp. Seems to work pretty good, but we need to do it 2-3 sometimes 4 times a year.

I hope this doesn't come off mean or?? as don't mean it that way, but I am NOT a fan of shaving dogs that really shouldn';t be, that hair also works to help keep them cool, believe it or not
the honest answer here is, if you love the dog , you live with its flaws
or maybe should have picked a different bred for a pet(not again meant to be an ass here)
dogs are family that most times you get to PICK and its a owners job to pick one that fits them, over trying to make a dog After the fact fit them IMO
just my 2 cents and not trying to bash!

I get my springer ( Marley ) clipped in the spring to about one inch all around. Then I let her grow out to her natural Springer cut and just get her styled every two months till winter and let her grow out till spring. Seems to work well and she dries much faster after a swim with a little shorter hair in spring and summer.

@poopooforme Hope all is well with you and the family.


My wife says every springtime it's time to shave her kitten.

my thought on the 850 patriot. the whole fucking motor is junk. 18 miles on mine and the coating is stuck in the rings, it's in the crank, etc. pistons are complete garbage. Kelsey had one of these apart and told me the motor was junk, now Indy Dan says it is.
