|You look about as fluffy as I am. My human took me to a groomer to get the lion cut last year, but the groomer recommended against shaving me. Instead, the groomer gave me a bath and a really good brushing, and gave my human instructions on how to better take care of me.
I do get the fur around my butt and on the back of my legs trimmed by my vet, however.
Whether you should shave or not probably depends on your particular situation, but for me, one big problem was that my human was using the wrong kind of hairbrushes and not really brushing out my undercoat, so I'd get all matted. The groomer recommended Millers Forge type undercoat rakes for me, and said that my human should brush me more often. She also recommended occasional baths in lukewarm water containing just a drop of Dove dishwashing soap.
This has worked well for us so far.
