Hi,

I have been growing out Meek's snout since it started getting cold outside and now he looks like a cute little bear cub.

My husband wants to shave it down again, and I got to admit shaved snout is my preferred look.

It's been between 0 and -15c lately but our winters tend to hover between -20c to -40c.

Should I shave down his snout? Is it better to keep his snout long?

Shave it! If it is snowy and he gets snow and ice balls in it then it won't be keeping him warm. Lily and Javelin love to plunge their faces into snow. If they had long hair on faces they would be a mess when they came in.

Milo has a shaved snout, it’s been around -30C here lately. I put a coat and boots on him and go on a short walk. I haven’t noticed any difference and he still sticks his nose in the snow at times. I think it’s essier with a shaved face since no snow balls will attach to his face.

Our winters are the same as yours and I shave my two toy’s face all year round.

What’s most important is the hair under the dog and a good length everywhere. Their paws get cold too. Having their faces shaved is like us having our face witout hair.
