Cut down and then grow out
I haven't been on in a while. Hope everyone is healthy and surviving Covid restrictions. Zorro is now 11 months and starting to blow his puppy coat. I have been home so combing everyday was ok but it is getting overwhelming - not how I really want to spend over an hour everyday. (Also, Loki barks the whole time I groom Zorro which makes me nuts.) He and Loki also spend long hours outside, running zoomies through the bushes, wrestling, getting wet. He is always a mess.
Question - If I cut him down to a puppy cut (leaving his ears and tail) now, can I let his coat grow long again later? The groomer said it would ruin his coat but I think I have seen people on here who cut them and then let them grow out again.
