|I know this is an inactive thread but for anyone finding this via a search engine as I did I wanted to say you should NEVER shave your Eskie! Their fur is hollow, much like a polar bear, and acts as an insulator in winter and a cooler in summer. Your dog will pant when it's hot outside and have low energy... this is normal. Let nature take care of your dog! If you shave it you are risking messing with it's natural insulation, protection from the sun (their skin is sensitive!) and not to mention potentially ruining their coats! Their skin will be more accessible to sun, feas, ticks, sticks (cutting), etc. PLEASE NEVER SHAVE AN ESKIE!!!
If you are really feeling sorry for it in summer, keep it in the shade, lots of cool water to drink, keep it in AC, give it a cooling bath, my eskie loves to swim so take it to a dog beach!
