Do you think that just because it’s warmer that maybe shaving your pup will help them cope up with the heat? While your thinking may be correct, shaving your pup is not recommended for the following 7 reasons.
If you are a parent of a double coated pup, let me tell you that there’s absolutely no reason for your to start shaving your pup. A double coated pup is one with a harsher coat on top and a softer one underneath the harsher coat.
When it comes to shedding, the softer coat sheds, so for example German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Australian Shepherds, and Siberian Huskies are all double coated. The harsher coat and the softer one does not depend on each other to grow and thus they both grow in different lengths.
While the outer coat grows slower than the inner coat, the outer coat is longer compared to the shorter inner coat. The coat sheds twice a year, but the question remains…is shaving your pup a bad idea? Check out the top 7 reasons on page 2 below!
