Why not to shave your Siberian:
http://www.sibrescue.com/tip-shave.asp

I simply give my dogs a kiddy pool to play in, plenty of fresh water, and shade in the summer. Never had problems with my Siberians in the heat. Regular grooming works just fine, I'd never shave one. I do believe that their coat helps regulate their body temperature in both winter and summer. And some of my Siberians looked darn near naked in their summer coats. They do just fine without me shaving.

Moco gets shaved every two months.
