Is this normal or did my dog groomer mess up?

winterwarrior :  wtf is wrong with you? The dog is a living thing not a doll. Dogs with double coats have their under coats for specific purposes like temperature regulation. And from a business perspective the groomer clearly messed up badly, that’s not no big deal. If you can’t deal with wiggly dogs don’t go into the grooming business.

We had the same thing happen to us with a highly recommended groomer that we had never been to before.  My poor boy woke us up at 4am that same day bleeding in several places from scratching at his razor burns all over his body. I’m furious and never taking him back there. I’m sorry this happened to your pup too 🙁 Hopefully it will grow back quickly!! It’s been a month and my dog is now about as long as we had asked him to be TRIMMED in the first place. The pictures are from the day of and the day after he got shaved, and then how long his hair is normally kept.

winterwarrior :  are you kidding? Are you a groomer? Do you understand double coats? If you are, people like you are the reason I don’t trust groomers and do it myself. What an ignorant statement to make.

You never buzz a double coat down to the skin unless it’s medically necessary. I have a Pomeranian and I brush him regularly and he has no mats other than tiny ones I clip (with nail scissors) behind his ears here and there. I trim him when needed. He doesn’t like it but I get it done. My vet even said to never have him shaved because a-he will get bad sunburn,he isn’t designed for direct contact hence the double coat and b-the hair has a high probability of not growing back the same,it will be rough because of the guard hair growing faster then the down if at all.
