Haircut - length for less matting?
Willow is almost 9 months old and we have not yet cut her hair, other than the groomer doing some trim around the eyes, some thinning, and sanitary trim. Her hair is about 7 inches long and very "fluffy". She still has her puppy hair and I spend 20-30 minutes a day brushing and combing her. As a result, she gets very little matting except after she wears her harness for a walk. We are planning a trip where she will be wearing her harness for longer periods of time and I would like to know a good length to cut her hair that would help prevent matting. She is at the age where she is/will be blowing her coat (from what I've read, dreading that!). I don't want to cut her short if we don't have to, but would like a more manageable coat that is less likely to mat. We would appreciate your feedback and suggestions based on your own experiences. Willow is our first dog with hair, not fur, so it's a learning experience. Thanks! Helen & Willow
