We have our two dogs trimmed at a local Dog Groomers after much searching we are really happy with them. The other day we met another Dog Groomer at a Show that told us we should get our dogs tummies shaven down to near enough nothing in the summer as this will keep them cool. She said the fur down the sides will hide the bareness of their tummies. Has anyone else had this done and found it helps keep them cool. Holly being brown seems to suffer more in the heat so was wondering about getting it done in a couple of weeks at their next visit. Though at the moment with the wind and rain i think they need their fur he,he.
