Surely, if you have a husky or a double coated dog you already know this. But unfortunately there are many that don’t and some that have simply been misinformed.
Siberian Huskies, along with any other double coated dog, should never be shaved unless medically necessary. Shaving their coat does not make them cooler and it can cause permanent coat damage, sunburn and heat stroke. While we think they must be miserable underneath all that fluff, especially during the summer months, they are actually cooler than they would be if you were to shave or trim their coat. These breeds are able to adjust to their climate and their coat works as insulation to keep them warm or cool. Here is a picture that shows a great demonstration.
