Do you recommend shaving the body body portion of a Golden Retriever's coat during the hot Summer months?
(I know it is important to not shave the tail or head, but it seems that it would be beneficial to shave the body to help with clean-up after a swim, and to help keep the dog cooler.) Thanks!
I do not see a problem with this as long as you do not cut the hair too short. The coat helps protect against sun and sunburn. vetcare
