Yes, trimming is good and should be done regularly. You do not want to shave, however. Never heard of the bacon grease theory.Hi,
Thanks for that. His coat is really long and silky. I brush him regularly and there are no mats. I have never cut it since I've had him because I've read that it is not good. Would it be o.k. to trim it back a bit for summer, plus to clean it up a bit. My female has a completely different coat much shorter and coarser.
