Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Summers throughout Temecula Valley can range from mild to sweltering!  Conscientious dog owners know that dogs can a rough go of it during scorching days.  Dogs with thick coats are especially at risk for suffering in the heat of summer.  To help your dog stay active during the summer and not overheat, it may be a good idea to shave their coat down.  Here’s why.

Summer Dog Haircut

Dogs can benefit from a light summer haircut.  On hot summer days, dogs can suffer from heat stroke, heat exhaustion, sunburn, and burns on their foot pads.  Of all of these conditions, heat stroke poses the most significant threat.  A dog that has a heat stroke can suffer from:

  • Blindness
  • Brain damage
  • Convulsions
  • Hemorrhages
  • Organ failure
  • Seizures

Dogs have a resting body temperature that is between 100 and 102.5 degrees.  When their body temperature rises over this range, dogs will begin to pant to reduce their body heat.  Shorter cuts help dogs regulate their body temperature easier.

One word of caution is that cutting your dog’s hair too short can lead to them being easily skin burned.  It’s A Dog’s Life Spaw mobile grooming service approaches each dog’s summer haircut according to need.
