I have a long haired Akita, and I am wondering if it would be wise to trim his hair down a bit for the summer. I love his hair, and would hate to see it go, but I don't want him to be hot and miserable when we're out and about. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hair actually protects dogs from the heat. Make sure he gets brushed regularly and maybe have a kiddie pool for him to play in and he'll be fine.

People forget that dogs don't sweat and their bodies don't respond the same way ours do. :) Give him fresh water and a way to get his feet wet. That will help keep him cool.
