We take a pragmatic approach to Shave Downs - allowing your Fur Baby to avoid overheating while keeping aspects of their coat and styling in-tact.
In addition to preventing overheating during the long summer months, Shave Downs are also the fastest way to resolve matted coats.
Each dog is bathed with our all-organic shampoo & conditioner and tear-free blueberry facial cleanser.
We cleanse their ears, express glands, and trim their nails using our "quick"-free filing approach.

It happens sometimes; a dog's matting, gone unchecked and unattended, can lead to pelting. Pelting occurs when matted hair merges at the level of the skin, and essentially becomes a single, completely tangled mess.
Pelting isn't just an aesthetic issue; the level of pressure a pelted coat can put on your dog's skin can cause real pain, and a pelted coat dramatically increases the risk of secondary health issues, such as fungal and pest infections.
In the instance where a dog's coat becomes pelted, a Shave Down is the best solution for restoring your dog's coat, allowing it to grow back out to its former beauty.
The best way to prevent your dog from becoming pelted is regular Grooming, with regular Bath & Brush services in-between your dog's grooms. Be sure to consult with your Haute Dog Groomer to schedule regular grooming and bath & brush appointments.
