Thanks everyone! I didn't realize that this would start so young... I'm excited for his adult coat but going to miss the poof. And yes he is a LC.
I sat with him and brushed him for awhile tonight... if you've ever seen the movie Bambi, I got lots of Thumper impressions while I was doing it. He seemed to like it.

He also started scratching a lot. Increasing brushing and bathing him seemed to help. I think the first blow is bothersome to them, especially when it's being replaced with a different type of fur.|

Worm him every two weeks for a few months, the time of year and indor and outdoor too might mean something. I can not see as much as I want to, but will help you ever
y way I can

Puppy shedding questions!
I've been reading a few other similar older posts but couldn't quite find what I was looking for unless I am just blind(which is highly possible)
Ollie will be four months next week and I've been noticing that he is scratching a lot and when he does big chunks of his black puppy coat are coming out. Right now he's on Orijen 6 fish along with real meat I make for him(he's a super picky eater), I don't 'think' it's allergies because his coat is super gorgeous, soft and shiny.
Is it possible his adult coat is coming in? I thought he was a little young for that but this is my first GSD pup so I'm in new territory here.
Thoughts?! I'll be a little bit sad if he's losing his poofy puppy coat.
And a picture to make the post worth reading
Most recent pic of him making a mess of the floors after a rainy muddy day.
