I'm one of the lucky ones. Not lots of shedding going on here and she is 16 months old. I didn't have lots of shedding when she was little either. To be honest she has a nice coat, eats good food and hasn't had a bath in about 8 months or so. My other two have gone to the groomers a few times in that 8 month period. I don't even have to brush her, I do every now and then so that she understands that I can do this.
