Dog Training

How right your grooming tips are? As soon as it gets to summer people rush off to have their dogs shaved. For most dogs this is a traumatic experience and as you say it does not help in cooling the dog at all. In fact the reverse is true. The dogs coat protects them from harmfull rays from the sun. If the dog is shaved or clipped very short their skin has no protective covering. At dog training yesterday a client turned up with her Border Collie shaved until it was almost hairless. Poor dog, even its tail had been shorn. She now has to keep her dog indoors to protect it from sunburn. I cannot understand this stupid trend that sends owners off to the grooming parlour to have their dogs clipped.
