Looks nice!

I don't have a coated GSD, but a mixed breed that has a very long top coat (longer than a coated GSD, some of his hair is over a foot long) and a super thick undercoat. He was getting hot spots in the summer b/c of the humidity so I started having a groomer do a "lion cut". It looks silly but it works for him and he's much more comfortable, no more hot spots. I can't do it myself since the electric clippers I use on my husband can't even cut through his hair, it's so think.
