Old English Sheepdog Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 4/25/2005
How do the OES look with 3-4" hair vs full long look? Do they still look good? Don't know how difficult 4-5-6 hrs a week will be for me. I have not seen a good picture close-up. I want to learn the grooming.

5/28/05 I think OES look good with full coat, puppy cut, or shaved down, they are adoable either way. If you want to keep your dog in top shape with full coat it requires diligence, frequent grooming and the proper tools and instruction on how to do it properly. It does take a lot of time to keep them well groomed, but it is essential for their health and well being, aside from how they look. A great website that features tons of info on grooming an OES can be found at www.oes.org There are also pictures on my website of one of my dogs in full coat, and one clipped down for summer to give you a comparison. www.lakesongoes.com Stacey
