Just wondering if anyone has advice on whether a long haired dog should be clipped in summer?
We have a golden retriever who has a very thick long coat. He HATES water, so we can't hose him to cool him down on hot days, and he won't go near the paddling pool. We have a shady area for him, and always have plenty of water. We give him frozen treats when we can.
My concern is that we get a fair few 40+ days out here and he really seems to struggle.
Would it be beneficial to get his coat clipped? I've heard some people say never to do it, but not sure why??
