As we draw closer and closer to summer, it’s important to be ready for the hot weather the season brings!
We’re sure many of you already have some plans on how to best enjoy the upcoming months with your pets.
But are your pets as ready for the summer weather as much as you are? If your pet is still carrying a heavy coat from the winter, it may be a good idea to get their hair trimmed into a much breezier and fashionable look.
Let’s take a look at the major benefits that come from giving your pet a summer haircut at Groomit!
1. Keeping Your Pet Cool
The biggest benefit that comes with summer haircuts for dogs and cats, is that it helps significantly in keeping them cool during the hottest weather of the year.
Just imagine if you continued to wear your insulating winter coat into the summer; you wouldn’t be able to stand it!
Of course, many breeds shed their winter coats naturally. However, some breeds do need a helping hand.
Heat-intolerant breeds with long coats such as the Lhasa Apso should always have a trim around this time of year. Long-haired Yorkshire Terriers are also in the same boat.
If you skip trimming their coats and let them outside into the hot weather, you run a real risk of heatstroke. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
2. Keeping Your Pet Comfortable
On top of the health benefits, a breezy summer trim for your pets is just much more comfortable for them!
If you plan on taking your pet on some fun summer activities to enjoy the good weather, you don’t want them tripping over their own coat while they are trying to play.
A yearly short trim is perfect for the increased amount of activity that comes with summer. It is also a fantastic opportunity to deal with any mats or tangles that have formed in your pet’s coat over the winter.
3. Keeping Your Pet Fashionable
At Groomit, we don’t just give your pet a basic, messy trim. We go a step further, ensuring that your pet is both feeling and looking great at the end of it!
Many owners love the longhaired look in their pets and can be sad when it comes to the summer trim. We love to work our magic and show such owners how stylish their pets can be with a shorter haircut!
