Summer Shaving for Undercoated Breeds
This is the time of year when grooming shops are inundated with requests to shave undercoated breeds (such as huskies, collies, pomeranians, chows etc.) The downy inner coat that these dogs possess performs a two-fold function: it insulates & protects against cold (and heat!!!), it protects against injury from branches, thistles & most importantly, insect bites.
So if you wish your dog to be cool this summer, keep him / her well brushed so the fur coat will do it's job. By the way, when you see your dog panting, he is actually cooling himself - the warm air is drawn off the surface of the body & expelled while cool air is inhaled (this is panting!!) Remember that your dog can also be affected adversely by the ultra violate rays of the sun...
