We cut Dex down back in late March...we had just started to have some slightly warm weather and I noticed he was much cooler after the cut. The reason I think he was cooler is that he was running around much more and was a lot faster. We want to keep his longer hair a bit longer, but come July 4 I think he'll get another very short cut. His hair is thicker - Kirby seems to do a bit better because his hair is just not so thick.
I have seen some posts on here about keeping them longer as their hair helps to cool them....which is best, long, short or in between? Any of your vets weigh in on this???
In Raleigh today we reached 101 with a heat index of 110!! Obviously we are all staying in doors and we will not get our pup until September, but I am very interested in what will be best for next year.
I think so. Cacao has really curly hair. She was panting so much. And now I just hose her off and she seems so happy. Beau may get a hair cut soon. He is panting really bad. Friday was really hot like 89 or so. I am sure a hair cut would help him out.
