In the heat of summer, you may feel uncool if you aren't sure how to get your hot dog or caliente cat to chill. Some pet parents with limited time turn to giving buzzcuts or having very short haircuts or shaves bestowed upon their besties. The somewhat misled idea that their pet is positively and perpetually perspiring plagues them.
But there are drawbacks to shaving and cutting short, so you may want to confiscate your clippers. What most people don’t know is that fur keeps Fido and Fiona cool in the summer once they have shed their winter coat. Buzz cuts are not the bomb - they can expose skin to sunburn and skin afflictions. And harness the urge to DIY without significant experience or the proper facilities or instruments -- even when you think you’re steady, you can nick or cut skin, which can lead to serious infection or ongoing discomfort. 
Fetch some shade when outside on sunny summer days and have your pet groomed by an experienced professional. Bathe your buds on a consistent basis to keep them clean, comfy and cool. 
Hot Tip: Many pups love ice cubes, so if you haven't already tried this, serve up some treats on the rocks. They help hydration and they're spot-on for the season.


PRIDE+GROOM was born because 4 New York City dog lovers wanted the same level of grooming products for their dogs that they themselves enjoyed. They looked (hard) but nothing was up to snuff. Or sniff. Like so many, we love our families and take pride in our homes, and we consider our pets to be integral parts of those entities. That said, we could not find an effective way to coif them that was on par with the way we tended to our children, our homes, or ourselves. These beloved pets are allowed on the furniture and in our beds, and yet even when fresh from the groomer, we knew they did not smell or feel as good as they could.

With the development of our coat-specific shampoos, conditioner and deodorizing spray, we think we found just the way to say thanks for being the best and the sweetest MVP of the house.

PRIDE+GROOM is the first dog grooming brand launched under a beauty platform, with formulas made in a clean beauty and scent lab. We know beauty is not only skin deep. We did a ton of research to create the entire line. Each product is formulated with its own unique blend of essential oils sourced from around the world.
