Shaving Siberian Huskies

Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to have a Siberian Husky, so I made sure that I researched extensively. I knew that they were escape artists and that they were so smart. I knew that they were beautiful dogs that came in a variety of colors, and that they shed a lot.

I naively believed that because I did research before owning my first dog, that others did the same thing. Boy was that a reality check. I had someone once tell me that, the reason why huskies could stand the cold, was not because of their double coated fur, but because they had anti-freeze in their veins.

I asked that individual for evidence to back up their claim. They never did give me the source. But I thought surly if one wanted to have a husky or any other double coated breed, that they were okay with the amount of shedding. Boy was I wrong again.

There is a misconception that by shaving your double coated breed, that there will be less hair in the home, and that they will not be hot in the summer. I hate to say this, but, there will always be dog hair. Sure your Rottweilers will not leave as much hair as your husky, but all dogs shed, just like us. The second layer of their coat protects them from the elements, so by shaving their fur, you are encouraging them to be harmed by the sun’s rays.

So, I beg you, please do your research before getting any pet. Animals are a commitment and to some people, they are family.
