Shaving your dog

Shaving may not be a good idea

Shaving your dog in the summer may not be a good idea.

Trimming longer strands and removing mats will help your dog feel more comfortable in summer’s heat but close clipping or shaving may not be helpful.  Nature designed your dog’s coat in layers which provide them with relief from the heat and insulation from the cold.

Keep them cool by providing shade, plenty of water, and brush them more often.
