Not all do. I've been lucky with mine, they are in the the slow shedders group. Midnite hardly sheds at all. Robyn slightly more as she gets older. Since I have several slower shedders it's comparable to having one that blows it's coat

You'll know, your dogs appearence will change fairly dramatically going from thick and full down a thin coat, one of ours looked like a different dog, even Losing her butt tuffs, Lol! Some dogs don't blow their coat and will lose hair more gradually.

Bridget The shedding is immense when they blow coat! It is like they are losing every bit of hair on them all at one time. You'll know.

Shade Anytime we get a drastic change of weather it causes Delgado to blow some of his coat (he blows it fully once a year). Right now for the past few weeks we've had a significant cold snap and I've had to really up the brushing to keep up with the clumps of hair flying Craziness!

coat problems

Heidi's coat has become very shaggy and sticks out in tufts. I brush her pretty often. Is this a normal senior problem? Or should I be looking for another cause? She eats pretty high quality food and gets Nupro Silver supplement on it. She is on Proin and Rimadyl. Any ideas?
