PLS ***STOP SHAVING HUSKIES***We are outraged to learn that not only ignorant groomers but NOW even vet offices are shaving and vets telling their clients it is OK..IT IS NOT.. Do you think you are making your dog cooler for summer? In fact, you are doing the opposite by shaving or modifying the coat length.. We are so upset about this we will be posting articles and pictures from now on to try to EDUCATE>>>NOT TO SHAVE We have even had our OWN adopted dogs shaven.. Take a look at this beautiful long haired wooly BEFORE and AFTER a lrg well known chain that starts with a P did do her AFTER her owner gave the ok to ONLY shave the few matted sections on the underbelly.. Having their valuable coat removed leaves them with NO barrier from the sun risking sun burn, sun cancer, heat stroke, easy access for ticks, fleas, poisonous spider bites, snake bites.. ANYTHING.. They have access right to the body. The topcoat is made up of tougher guard hairs that don’t shed, and protect your pet from the sun’s harmful rays and bug bites. It actually insulates them from the heat. What this means is: do not shave your double coated dog. It’s a mistake to think you’re helping your animal stay cool, particularly in summer, when evolution has provided them exactly what they need to survive. By stripping them of their natural ability to heat and cool themselves, you could be doing more harm than good. A key piece of understanding in this matter is that, unlike humans; dogs do not cool themselves through their skin. At most, it is only the pads of their paws that sweat. Their main mode of cooling comes from panting. ANOTHER VERY GOOD ARTICLE: ekcgrooming/2014/02/23/8-reasons-why-not-to-shave-your-dog/
