    Not going to argue with you, NS. You said NEVER EVER and I was just pointing out that not every shares your views. It has been a big debate for years ..

    Sometimes it's best to say, "I wouldn't recommend ...." or "Be careful if you ...... because ...." then list the reasons you wouldn't recommend it.

    Credibility can be lost in absolutes. There are very few absolutes .. and, frankly, I don't think whether a person chooses to shave their double coated dog is one of them.

    And, yes, I'm aware of the pros and cons; as a breeder, competitor, groomer, and vet tech .. I've seen each.

    *back to our regularly scheduled program*

    Puppy breath!

    Hair length and temperature tolerance

    There are two, one seems to be more scientific than the other, and one is a vet's findings. Dogs naturally have a thin summer coat and a plush winter coat. If they were meant to be shaved, you'd see a lot of wild canine types naturally sporting that hair cut. Of course, I raise wolf hybrids, and I have yet to have one overheat. They seem to have enough sense not to do all their running in the middle of the day.

    If you're going to monitor them and they are house dogs, have at it. The majority of the people I see that shave these dogs think hmm, summer is coming, better clip down Fido and toss him back out in the yard! Or those that shave a white husky with light skin down to the skin because she sheds too much and they don't want to be bothered to brush her, and again, toss her back outside. You got me.on the never ever, there are some exceptions to every rule, but it I make sure those that buy my puppies are well aware that they can ruin their dogs skin and coat, and don't bother trying to get a pup from me if you can't stand a little hair. I've fostered a fee double coated dogs with ruined coats, so call it a pet peeve. ;)

    I'm glad that works for you.

    There is also alot of controversy about breeding wolf-hybrids. I mean, if wolves were meant to be in captivity and crossed with domestic dogs, you'd see alot of wild wolf-types jumping in and hanging out in peoples fenced yards ...

    I personally don't believe they should be kept in captivity and bred to domestic dogs, but that's your right, so carry on.

    Well, that's a whole different subject matter, but you aren't goin to find many hybrid breeders with a full 'wild' wolf bred to full dog, selling half and half F2's. I prefer F3 and F4 stock, as they have enough wild appearance to satisfy the desire for a hybrid but plenty of dog traits to make an acceptable, well adjusted pet. Didn't mean to hijack so I'll be quiet now. XD

    So,of course,now that I told you about their cute piglet tails,they decide to make me a liar and refuse to do it tonight.
    The best they would give me is half halfheartedly sticking them in the air,lol.
