The owner agrees to hold Not 2 Shaggy Housecall Dog Grooming or its designee harmless from any claims, lawsuits, injuries, damages, losses, costs, or expense whatsoever sustained as a result.
16. Not 2 Shaggy recommends that you never shave down your double coated dog unless he is severely matted. If the entire coat is matted, shave downs are the most humane action. Outside of heavy matting, the best action to take is a de-shed treatment. Now, if an owner just insist on shaving their double coated dog, the groomer will try their best to convince the owner to change their minds. However, if they persist, the groomer will shave the dog . Signing below is a waiver acknowledging that it is against the groomers better judgment and not in the best interest of the dog.
Shaving down a double coated dog will actually impair his ability to regulate his body temperature.
Without his double coat he will be more vulnerable to sun burns.
While the under coat usually grows back, sometimes the guard hairs do not or they may grow back in uneven patches. This will give the dog a scruffy look that may not correct itself. The older the dog is at the greater the risk of either the top coat or undercoat’s uneven growth.
17. Grooming at self serve areas: all terms and conditions of this service agreement apply. Owner understands that the pet must be picked up on time as there are no kennels and failure to do so will terminate service and no further appointment can be scheduled. Multiple pet owners can schedule on separate days or must have the time available to bring them at separate times as there are not kennels available to house dogs for pick-up.
