A groom-out is the process of removing the undercoat from dogs with a double, combination, or heavy coat. Usually this undercoat is not effectively removed with simple brushing or combing, as these focus primarily on removing hair and debris from the top layer of fur. 

A groom-out of your dog helps facilitate the growth of healthy new hair, the regulation of body temperature, stops matting and discomfort, and helps reduce the amount of fur your pet sheds around your home. 

The process involves a de-shedding treatment and conditioning treatment, with specialty grooming techniques. The finish leaves the dog soft and fluffy, and the use of thinning scissors helps shape and refine the coat.

What you should know

 It's less than ideal to shave a double coat. Although the scientific evidence is still out, anecdotally groomers generally agree that it takes a very long time for a double coat to recover from shaving, if it recovers at all.

 Double-coated dogs that are compacted (that is, have a tight, matted undercoat) might still need shaving. Although it isn't ideal to shave a double coat, shaving it may be the lesser of evils as leaving it matted is very uncomfortable and painful. We always try to avoid this, but please keep it in mind if you know your dog is in this condition.
