Blowing Coat?

Any body else have a dog that is starting to blow their coat? Max's never blew before winter like it normally does, but it sure seems a reaaaaallllly odd time to be shedding?

Re: Blowing Coat?

Steel hasn't shed since we adopted him (almost 2 years). He started shedding a tuft a week a few months ago. Just recently upped that to a tuft a day.

Re: Blowing Coat?

We have the furminator and it does an amazing job ... but it seems like you can brush forever ... seems like they should be bald by now :0

Re: Blowing Coat?

YES!!! Both are blowing big time. They shed all the time, but this is major. I think in part it's our crazy Colorado weather - warm to cold and back again, constantly. I don't think they know what to do...so they just said to heck with it we'll just dump the entire coat.
