Will Puppy Hair Grow back fast??

I took my little man to the groomers yesterday for a "puppy cut", I specifically said just a little trim. Well, she left his hair fluffy on his head and tail, but his body coat was practically shaved to an inch. We are so bummed!! His coat looks whiter than before, which is fine, but my little fluff ball isn't so fluffy. He'll be 5 month in 2 weeks. Does anyone know how long it will take for his hair to grow back?

p.s. I will post a pic of Samy soon, he never stays still! Thanks....

It will take a while. I had Rosie in a long puppy cut (teddybear its called) the first of January. she is just now getting back to the stage that she was then. So say 6 months. I am sure that in a week or so you will get used to the look and may want to keep your little man in a puppy cut because it is so much easier. Pictures please. Course I know about pictures. The first year, all we ever got of Rosie was her back end as she would take off before we could snap the picture.

HI! It took him 5 months to get to the length it was prior to his haircut, so it will take approx that ammount of time for it to grow back! *grin*

My Kit got into some roofing tar, luckily missed her exposed parts 100%. Only option was a Army boot camp cut

Where did my dog go ?

I've decided to keep her hair shorter, not that short but 1/2 to 1" or so.

Again....a groomer does not listen! Remember hair grows! Have you thought about grooming your pup? The groom reminds me a little of a "Lion Cut."

Oh yes, after this, I will groom my puppy. I will never go to a groomer again! I feel so sad, and my husband keeps reminding me about his cut, on how different he looks. But he is still so cute and we love just the same!

Ok...now, get your pup use to the comb everyday even if it is only 15 seconds 4-6 times a day...after awhile...you will know what pup is tolerating...lengthen the times (combing) and decrease the sessions to 2x day. The comb is going to be your best friend.

Check out Jodi Murphy .... She has great videos. http://http://www.jodimurphy.net/products_instructionalseries.htm

I have been grooming Jack myself. It isn't that hard. His body and legs aren't that bad when I do it. I still can't get his head right. Luckily, after a week of growth, it usually looks okay.

TTFN,
Pam

My guess, about 3/4 inch a month maybe a bit more. Since it was winter she had to have a sweater to stop her from shivering
