He is raw fed and I supplement with Feedsentials, Olewo carrots and beets, and pumpkin.

He did shed horribly when I took him off the above and fed only freeze dried for a week.

I am convinced that it has nothing to do with breed and everything to do with diet.

Hessa When brushing do you brush against or with the flow of hair? I assume both but I don't know if going against actually pulls hair out and not just pick up loose hair.

Chip18 Yep ,shed a lot and some vacuum cleaners can't handle it. Our rainbow vacuum will not pick up the hair so we just a bought a cheap Bissell and it works like a charm!

It's not bad at all now but summer is coming.

mego we haven't had much shedding for the past month or two here, but right before that my girl went into heat and blew her coat. She's long coat though so I have heard that they shed less, dont know how true, or some say the undercoat just gets stuck in the overcoat a little more. I am bad and havent brushed her all month and we have very minimal tumbleweed going on, but it gets really bad during coat blow

Several on this board are using Feedsentials and have noticed that shedding has reduced dramatically. No reason you cannot add it to your kibble.
