The summer cut is only for dogs that have a thick coat. During summer when the heat is unbearable, the dogs are more comfortable when the hair is trimmed or even shaved. Most of the dog lovers we know have the summer cut to their dogs as early as March when the cold is gone and it is starting to get warm in the daytime.
But for our dogs, they are not comfortable when the coat is shaved. The would be scratching for days while the hair is growing. That irritation is not good since the itchy skin would rob the dog of sleep. What we can do during summer is to install and air conditioner for the benefit of our dogs.
