Mini Aussies in Floria
(OFallon, MO, USA)
Hi Everyone! I have a 1 1/2 year old Mini Aussie named Margo. She is just the best dog. My husband recently accepted a job offer in Florida from Missouri. It gets super hot in Missouri but obviously not all year round, so I wanted some advice, mainly on her coat length.
She, like most Aussies is super fluffy and has a thick coat. I have never had her shaved as I have been told that is a no no due to their undercoat. My groomer also said if you cut them too short, their skin can get irritated.
For those of you who live in Florida or anywhere hot all year, what do you do with your Aussie as far as grooming? Will she be okay leaving her coat as is or should I get it trimmed shorter?
