A note from the Stylist to the Stars Grooming Salon:

With the warmer weather, we are having lots of pups brought in for their "yearly clean up." I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you the importance of regular grooming care, not just once per year. Even on breeds with shorter hair, like labs, they still should be bathed at least every 6-8 weeks to remove any dander, loose hair, and rejuvinate the skin. Nails should be trimmed or dremmeled every 4-6 weeks to keep them nice and short and prevent wear and tear on the bones of the feet.

The dog's coat is a natural insulator in the against the cold and against the heat. If you do have your dog shaved down during the warm months, be careful to monitor them in the sunlight. They can be prone to sunburn once their coat is shortened. If you have a longer coated breed and want to keep them the natural length, make sure that all their undercoat is removed so that their skin can "breathe."

  1. We're thinking of having our Golden Retriever, Alex, trimmed down for the summer. He seems so hot! What do you recommend? Our goal is to have Alex as comfortable as possible.

    We love the grooming he's received from the stylists at Dog Star. He always looks so beautiful!

  2. We have a lot of Golden owners that like to have a "puppy cut" done during the summer months. That shortens them up and gets rid of most of the feathering and extras (makes them look like puppies). If that is something you are interested in, when you come in for the appointment the groomers will come up and talk with you about exactly what you want. Some owners like it super short where others like some length left. Alex would look super cute in that look :)
