    I know there are youtube videos on grooming shelties, too :)
    I am pretty simple with my routine, just grooming spray and a rake. :)

    I'm glad your dog is doing better and sorry that you were so upset. You Tube's are a good resource! Good luck, hope she never endures such rough treatment again!

    Thank you for all this great information. I am so glad I joined this forum but sadly for the initial reason. It's a great way to talk with others who share the same love for Shelties.

    This has just also happened to us. Groomer spent an hr and a half carding Pippi. Heaps or undercoat on the floor but none left on her. The poor girl is freezing as we live in New Zealand. Good to hear her undercoat will grow back more quickly in winter as she is currently curled up with me in bed on a sheepskin under the covers after a long day at agility.

    Have you noticed an increase in undercoat yet?

    oh no!! I'm so sorry. It's a horrible experience, what makes someone do such a thing?
    I've noticed her hair is s-l-o-w-l-y growing back on the left side of her front area but little to none on her hind quarters. We just got back from the vet for a checkup---he just shook his head in disbelief. Her skin is still aggrevated due to such trauma.

    I think we have come out very lucky. Pippi is getting a nice lot of undercoat on her body already. Could have to do with it being summer here. Her tail is slowly growing back bit very little undercoat around her neck. I hope your babys skin recovers soon
