The best way to keep your pet cool is to keep your pet’s coat mat-free, well-brushed, and clean.

Pet Grooming Tips for the Summer – by Animal Behavior College Graduate

    This article was quoted slightly off. You DO want to groom your pet (which is the main statement of my post) but you DON’T want to shave your pet down for the summer, which is what many owners consider doing when it can actually damage your pet. In this article where it questions whether to GROOM a pet, its supposed to ask whether one should SHAVE your pet. The author (which is myself) is also a Dog Trainer, not a Dog Groomer.
