Blowing coat?

Hello! I am familiar with dogs blowing coat seasonally, but we now live where the temperature is nearly the same year round. My new pup, not a GSD, seems to be blowing coat. The breeder told me that he will probably do this only this one time, since the temp is stable here. Is this true? I was used to my GSDs blowing coat a couple times a year, plus shedding like crazy all the rest of the year

Yes, I agree with you that gsds shed year-round and also have 2 big sheds, but your new pup is not a gsd and you are in climate that is nearly the same year round, so based on what the breeder said, that may be your pup's first and last big shed, but I think that doesn't mean that he won't shed some.
