|No, and I do not recommend shaving/trimming your dog for several reasons:
1. Sometimes the hair just doesn't grow back right. I used to work at a pet care facility (grooming, daycare, boarding, etc.) and I've seen a few that just looked weird ever since they were shaved.
2. Their coat not only keeps them warm, but it helps keep them cool. It forms an insulated barrier that keeps their temperature regulated.
3. Their coat also protects them from harmful UV rays.
Make sure she has plenty of cold water to drink. If it's really hot, take her outside only to use the bathroom and then come right back in. If it's too hot outside for you, it's definitely too hot out for your dog lol.
