I usually shave the babies but I didn't in July and I haven't yet in Aug, I have been using the FURminator. It is AMAZING!! Oscar loves it which is funny because it is usually hard to get him to try anything new, and it really works... Lilly doesn't mind it but it is not her favorite. However, she doesn't shed as much as Osc and her coat is a bit shorter. I think I will go back to shaving them in Sept. I chose not to since they are in the sun so much and shaving them increases their risk of skin cancer and Lills doesn't need anything to increase her risk.
If your looking for a good doggy brush this is the one throw out all the others after you get this there's no going back.
