Should I Shave My Dog?


We are hitting the peak of this brutal summer. A dip in the pool and ice-cold drinks provide nothing more than temporary relief. If you could shed all your clothes, you probably would. You might be tempted to shave your dog in the sweltering heat to help it cool.

Guess what? Evolution is one step ahead of you. A layered coat is your pup’s natural protection against insects, UV rays and other irritants.

What you should do instead is brushing your pooch’s fur regularly to allow better air circulation. Even breeds with longer hair would need no more than a trim from a professional. More questions? Find a pet grooming specialist on HelloToby today!
