natural coat or haircut for Chow in summer?

Dear Dr. Brown, Do you have an opinion on whether it is better to give a Chow a haircut in summer or leave the natural coat and brush regularly to remove the undercoat? We used to have a haircut by a groomer (not shaved) but I read in some Chow books that the natural coat actually insulates from all weather extremes. Because of this and because he often got ear infections after the groomer, last summer we let his full coat stay and I brushed him regularly. This is So. California, and he is black, but he did not seem to be less comfortable than other summers. I would love to have your advice.
