Over-Heating and Panting. Will Shaving Fur In Summer Help?
We have a one year old red merle mini Aussie male. We worry about his panting so much. He is very energetic, constantly in motion.
With his coat being so thick, we were wondering if any other Aussie parents have shaved their furlings during the summer to keep them from over heating? If so, how short?
Also, with his face being mostly white, has anyone had their pup get a sunburn on their forehead or muzzle?
