Shedding
 
Does your puppy sheds a lot? What do you do to prevent shedding as much? My 7 1/2 month old sheds a lot and it's driving us crazy.

My girl sheds like she's got another animal living in her.
I take her to a friend of mine whose a groomer to work out her season changing coats. I'm there at least 6 times a month right now. I know that's not even close to practical right now trying brushing her for a few hours every night.
If its skin related use vitamin e oil
I use that in every bowl food and water for my dog. It will help make the skin coat and nails stronger and healthier

German Shepherds shed, sometimes they shed alot more. Good diet, no extreme temp changes (like keeping house at 75 degrees in winter when out door temps are freezing) and frequent brushing/combing just keep it barely in check for me.

We use a rake on her(Tessa is a long coat)several days a week. We take her to our local reservoir and let the hair blow. It truly looks like we've killed a small animal each time. Wonder what the caretakers think...We also run the sweeper at least once per day. It's just another part of this breed.

I put the brush attachment to my vacuum and go at it. It will fill up your canister a few times but better there then the floor. My dog loves it lol.

My last GSD shed buckets...it was impossible to keep up in the house. His fur became part of life and food.

With Gus I have almost no shedding. I contribute this to hos RAW diet and Feedsentials.

I second the no shedding with the raw diet and Feedsentials.
The week I stopped both, I had so much hair around the house that it was shocking. And I was feeding the freeze dried food from the same company!
Two weeks after I started up both again, the hair stays on my dog.
