No!! Seriously. Ask the folks who have had to have their dogs shaved for surgery. It takes FOREVER for it to grow back in properly and if you are routine about it, it may not grow back in properly. Our older male was kept in collar that damaged a ring of his neck fur and it's just now-5 months later- starting to look normal.
Also, the coat insulates and helps them regulate their body temp both hot and cold. Lots of brushing and a good forced air dryer after bathes will do wonders to keep down on the shedding.
