? On a little Grooming Accident

Hi...this is my first post here :)

I recently moved to North Carolina from Ohio, so I had to take Bernie to a new groomer. I called around, and eventually decided to take him to a local "doggy spa" that claimed to know how to strip Cairns. I think they shaved/clipped him instead :(

Bernie is almost 3, and has been 'stripped' about 6-7 times so far and he's never looked like this after a stripping....he looks so silly....I think he's mad at me!!!

How long should it take for his coat to grow out so I can get him back to looking normal?

Thanks!

You don't happen to live around Jacksonville, do you? The same exact thing happened to me. You should be able to tell what they did by how much they charged you. Stripping can get pretty expensive, so if you went to pay them and it seemed lower than it should be, then thats probably what happened.

I'm sure Bernie's hair will grow back just fine. My first Cairn Missy was never striped and always groomed and she looked beautiful. Everyone commented on her coat as well as Kramer. Kramer gets groomed and when his hair grows back his coat is just like a Cairns should be. I think stripping and shaving are a preference of the owner.

All I do is brush him and then brush his coat upwards and that will get the few dead hairs out. I like the Cairn coat feeling for the winter so he stays long but summer I do get him cut and he is sooooooooooooo soft and darling.

I like both looks.

Give him a month or two, he'll be looking scruffy again! Promise!

No, I live in Charlotte. They charged me $45, which is what I was paying back in Ohio, although that was at a breeder. I'm almost positive he was shaved--his fur is shorter than my neighbors pug!

Give him a month or two, he'll be looking scruffy again! Promise!

I hope so!!! I think I need to find a new groomer though!

Thanks!

His hair is shorter than a pug? It'll take a little longer than a month or two for him to look scruffy again..... :o

I guess he will be cool for the summer then!?! His fur seems to grow fast, so hopefully he wont look goofy for too long!

I'm originally from Stow Ohio, outside of Akron.
