If you have more questions, feel free to ask us.
She's pretty pink, and some parts of her body is just skin, so they may have been a bit excessive. Her itching has gone down thankfully. Thank you and I'm really glad to as I was dreading the reveal, lol. You're awesome for all the help you gave me!

Thanks I got quite a few compliments while shopping with her after she got shaved.

Its a very slow process but seems to help. Karat needs to be brushed and combed daily to assure no mats. This trick, I learned from a gal who is of african desent. She has very curly kinky hair and this is what she, and others of her race, have done for years to get the tangles out. Hope this helps you. It worked for me.
Hmm.. interesting. I'll try that, thanks!

Her trim is very cute. You might always have problems with her matting easily because she is a poodle mix. When you combine the two types of coats, they matt. Many doodles matt horribly. Take heart because you should be able to maintain her cute cut, although brushing fuzzy feet can be challenging. I am glad you are happy with her new look!

I won't wet shave. Don't want to do it. As a groomer, your dog will get shaved if it comes in matted. I'm not in this business to rip hair out. You may need to get her on a maintenance schedule.
