Nope they call them German Shedders for a reason. I like a slicker brush it picks out the undercoat better than the other brushes I've tried.

Nope!
3 cats and Mia sheds more than all three combined.

Nope. It never stops. It's heavy year around, and then the blowing their coats start... and omg, I do nothing but brush, vacuum, brush, vacuum.... over and over and over again... all day, every day for weeks.

Honestly, all you can do is feed good quality food, thoroughly groom him weekly, and give supplements for a healthy coat (fish oil, vitamins, etc). That will at least give them a healthy shed and not just dull, brittle hair. A happy healthy dog will shed a bit less, but it definitely will always be heavy... that's part of the breed.

Good luck! He's very handsome!

Ps. If he is a puppy, no back packs. You don't want the weight to add stress to their joints. I prefer to wait until at least 18 months if not 2 years for large dogs. Beautiful dog. And no, it never ends. :/
