Trimming my 4yo Hav
I'm new here & have a question that I hope you can help me with. My hubby & I have a beautiful 4 year old Hav, have had her since she was 9 wks. old & have never trimmed her hair. She is definitely daddy's girl, but my hubby has mild dementia & some other health issues, so I am the one who grooms her either everyday or every other day. She gets bathed every 2 wks., alternately by me and a professional grommer. My question is, I'm going in for hip replacement surgery in a few wks. & won't be able to groom her (I use a comb) for at least a month after my surgery. I currently place her on an ottoman in our living room (in her doggy bed) & comb her there, which necessitates that I kneel on the floor infront of her to groom her, thus while my hip heels, I won't be able to do this. As my hubby is also handicapped, he won't be able to groom her either. It's just the 2 of us. My question is, if I get her a puppy cut (not too short), will her hair grow all the way back to its current luxurious length? It's pretty much all the way to the floor now?
I appreciate any help you guys can give me.
