Please let me know if my dog Sampson should have his coat shaved or left -natural during the summer months in Lakewood,Ca. I thought the coat actually protected him from the sun and possibly even helped-in keeping him cooler. Thank you for your time and expertise. Pamela
Ps-Sampson is an Australian cattle dog-looks like a border collie. He has a long coat,multi-color with black white tan and grey spots.
This is a matter of personal preference. Yes, the coat protects against the suns rays. vetcare
