Bergamasco Sheepdog Q&A

can you keep you their coats short?

Yes. But be careful to cut their hair too short because their skin is very sensitive and prone to rashes and scabbing. Because of their natural thick coat their skin is usually protected from harm so when cutting make sure to be EXTRA careful to not get to close to the skin. Also make sure they do NOT get external parasites (fleas, tick, etc) because scratching and biting irritates their skin and causes them to scab. When their coat is long is nearly impossible for blood sucking parasites to get to their skin because of the thick oily protective 1st layer coat (except for places like the inside of ears or near nose) And last but not least be aware you will be asked what kind of poodle mix your dog is.
