I don't care what the owner requested, after he neglected this dog for months, I would have given the dog a more respectable groom. It looks like a #10 shavedown (can see skin in places) so I would have cut most of the muzzle off to balance the groom and to "put off" matts under the chin (that normally gets into the food bowl).
Happy doing what's best for "Fluffy"

I would have. Company policies prevented.
I've done this to a few dogs. Always shih tzu types too...
I did this to a cocker spaniel once
