It's not OK to cut a Great Pyrenees hair unless you need to cut part of the hair to remove something stuck in their hair.

If you adequately maintain the coat of your Great Pyrenees, you won't need to cut its hair to keep it cool in warm weather.

No it's not OK to shave a Great Pyrenees dog.

The Great Pyrenees double coat helps keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer, so aside from a little trimming, it should be left on the longer side.

Yes you should groom a Great Pyrenees to keep their coat and fur healthy and clean.

The Great Pyrenees is one of the easiest of all breeds to maintain properly because he has been endowed with a coat which is self-cleaning, tangle and mat resistant.

However don't shave the Great Pyrenees.

The Great Pyrenees double coat helps keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer, so aside from a little trimming, it should be left on the longer side.

The average cost for dog grooming is $50.00

Hiring a dog groomer to maintain a healthy coat and skin, you will likely spend between $40.00 and $75.00

A dog should be groomed every 4 to 6 weeks or at least every few months or so depending on the dog.

Some dogs need grooming more often than others so it can vary.

Dog groomers recommend brushing at least 1-3 times a week and bathing at least every 1-2 months.

Any dog grooming should mostly be light trims around the face, ears, paws, and sanitary areas every 4-6 weeks.

And typically, wire-haired dogs should not be shaved down as their coat may grow back softer and a different color.

A Shih Tzu should be groomed every 6 weeks or even once per month.

A Shih Tzus hair grows quickly, and should be trimmed every 4-6 weeks, so you (and maybe your groomer) can try out different looks and lengths for your pet.

If your dog groomer has done a good job then you should tip the dog groomer if you want too.

There's no requirement to tip a dog groomer like some waitresses or waiters you're required too.

However if you can afford to tip the dog groomer who did the job and if they are working for a dog grooming company and are working based on salaries from the employer then tipping the dog groomer is a good idea.

You should tip the dog groomer at least 15 percent of the price or even 10 percent.

Even a small tip goes a long way to help the dog groomer who did the job.

How Much Do You Tip Dog Groomers?

Tipping can be tricky, but when you're given a service, you should always reward it with a little bit of cash.

15% is a good place to start.

If someone did an okay job, as in they didn't go above and beyond but you're satisfied with their service, a 15% tip is reasonable.
