Why Shaving Your Dog Down Is Not A Good Idea, As It Can Interfere With Your Dog'S Self
All dogs shed to some degree. The exception is completely hairless dogs. Certain breeds (so-called hypoallergenic dogs) shed very little. While others (namely heavily double-coated breeds) shed large amounts. Seasonal shed occurs as a result of temperature change. When the weather warms, dogs shed their old winter coats to make way for a lighter summer coat. When it gets cool again, dogs wear their lighter undercoat and grow thicker, warmer coats. :max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GettyImages-196896-5c29af2746e0fb0001f2c071. jpg) There's no way to completely stop shed. Shaving your dog down is not a good idea. It can interfere with your dog's natural self-cowsing and self-healing mechanism.
You can keep your dog healthy with routine visits and proper nutrition. Shedding makes a mess. There is no doubt about it. The key is to remove hair before it has a chance to get into your carpet and upholstery. A pet hair tape roller is an excellent idea. Put it around for touch-ups throughout the day. For deeper cleaning of upholstering and small areas, use a handheld vacuum. . . .
