    some go so/as far as to keep their dog shaved in the hope that their allergies...

    1. Some go so far as to keep their dog shaved in the hope that their allergies will be reduced.

    2. Some go as far as to keep their dog shaved in the hope that their allergies will be reduced.

    Are both the same in meaning?

    Well, at first I had trouble telling if there was any difference between the two sentences. Yes, they mean the same thing. (I am going to assume that "their allergies" refers to the owners and not the dogs.)
