If you take a force dryer to a coated GSD, you will see all the dead hair that is stuck in the coat--and let me tell you, it is no less than what I see with short coats! In fact, I have two coated GSDs here in my shop today, I should take a video to show you what I mean.
Of course, some dogs shed less than others, regardless of coat length. I have one short coat GSD that comes in once a month, and every month, the amount of hair he sheds is unbelievable. And yet my own short coat GSD sheds relatively little, except for the spring/summer blow.
