I recently came across a post on Imgur claiming shaving a Siberian husky exposes it to "sunburn, skin cancer, insects, and parasites".
[...] the layers of your pet's coat help to protect them from overheating and sunburn.
The claim seems to be quite well spread. However I can't seem to find any sources that verify the claim. All sources I can find seem to be enthusiast sites which I feel might be rife with myths and hearsay.
Does shaving huskies expose them to sunburn and overheating?
