Help!!! My boy Carl (3 years old) loves loves loves to swim! I love that he loves to swim however, he gets wicked hot spots during the summer! I bought a fantastic groomer-grade dryer that is a lifesaver! Unfortunately, no matter how diligent I am to dry him after swimming he always gets nasty hot spots! My question to you all is what if I give him an aggressive summer puppy haircut? Will shorter hair help prevent so many hot spots? Will he even look like a golden anymore? He has the most beautiful, soft, fluffy fur that I brush constantly but these hot spots are my nemesis!! I’m terrified to cut his gorgeous hair but will do it now if somebody reassures me it will reduce the risk of multiple spots all summer. Keeping him out of the water is not an option. He literally lives to eat and swim!!!
