夏天到了 忍不住再提醒一次!!!
請大家告訴大家!!! 千萬別幫哈士奇剃毛
保持室內通風,  準備充足的水分, 適當的加點舒跑(非常少量的)
別讓他們悶到了 中暑 脫水就好~~

譯文:
在表面看來西伯利亞雪橇犬那豐厚的雙層毛實在需要24小時吹冷氣,
其實有一點可能大家都不明瞭是西伯利亞雪橇犬和薩摩耶犬同屬北極犬種。
他們的雙層毛,外層毛的尖頂叫做 SILVER TIPS (銀尖),
是用來抵擋紫外光和氣熾熱太陽所發出的熱力。
很多人還誤以為在夏天的時候要把她的毛剪短,如果你這樣做的話就會把它天然的保護能力全毀了!!!
剪短了他的毛他便會熱得很痛苦,更糟的會有可能患皮膚癌。
在另外一方面,雪橇犬的底毛絨密,毛底還會浸出一種油份出來,
造成一個很好的防熱夾層 (INSULATION),所以這些北極犬是不怕熱的。
大家試想下在北極冰天雪地裏他們沒有披上大衣也可以抵禦嚴寒的天氣,
而且在北極白天和夜晚的溫度可以相差幾十度,如果他們沒有這本能根本沒有辦法生存。
所以西伯利亞雪橇犬和薩摩耶犬被譽為可以在最極端和最惡劣的環境下生存。

大家都知道狗的皮膚不會像人類棑汗散熱
犬類是透過舌頭和腳掌還有耳朵來散熱,
所以把毛剃掉並不會讓牠感到涼快,那只是人的錯覺!
剃毛除了讓哈哈看起來很醜之外,
你還剝奪牠皮膚的保護層;牠們的外層毛可以隔離紫外線;
哈士奇的皮膚幾乎沒有黑色素,
所以當直接暴露在陽光底下會照成傷害,
甚至得皮膚癌.
所以請愛哈士奇人士告訴大家,
並機會教育不懂的獸醫和寵物美容人士.Tks!

Why Not To Shave Your Husky:
Siberian Huskies are a beautiful breed. Just looking at them is a delight. But the gorgeous dogs you see at dog shows got that way because of the work the owner put into the dog in maintaining the coat. Living with double coated dogs means that you must have an understanding that they shed and you WILL have hair in the house. If you don't like grooming or hair in your house, this is NOT the breed for you!

The Siberian Husky should n ever be clipped / shaved except in medical emergencies. Yes, there are "professional" groomers out there who will tell you to shave your Husky. They will even do it without asking your consent! There are vets who will tell you to shave your Husky. These vets are uninformed about the breed.

Dogs do not sweat like humans. Their cooling process is done via panting from the mouth, sweating at the paws and cooling the blood in their ears. Shaving the dog does nothing to keep the dog cool. It just makes the human feel better when looking at the coated dog.

The Siberian Husky has little to no pigmentation in its skin. If you shave the Husky, you expose it to the sun without protection. Now you have a dog that can come up with a variety of skin problems including skin cancer. Another reason to NOT clip / shave your Husky is that the fur acts as a protection against insects and parasites. You remove that protection the dog is exposed to even more insect problems than he would have had if he had been allowed to keep is protective coat.

Furthermore, if you clip / shave a Husky it will eventually ruin the coat and disturb the proper shedding process. Resource: Ted Greenlee
