Not at all!! Clipping her puppy coat won't do any harm to her adult coat. Have fun and post pics when you do it!!

As a grooming newbie, i wasn't aware that any clip could damage the coat. what causes damage?

i was told that by her breeder and some other people. but i did alot of research lately and i guess its just a old groomers myth.

The Current theory about the origin of the myth is that many people get their pup shaved for the first time when mats start appearing (during coat change) so the fluffy puppy coat gets shaved off and a different (adult) coat grows back and people blame the clip rather than the changing coat.
