I dunno. Odie was spayed a few years ago. I really can't say if she has or has not changed her shedding schedule. All I know is I did battle with that coat yesterday and I was ready to throw in the towel.
Today I did her daughter Lassie. Now I did her once this winter because she was matting up. Sheeze, a Herko coat mixed with an Odie coat -- it doesn't HAVE to be a long coat, LOL! But it wasn't too terrible, at least not the top. We had a pretty good battle up and under, but I must have gotten her last time right after she stopped shedding. So the dead hair did not have a chance of sticking around creating pain and suffering.
Bear is molting now. I put her up on the table and went at her with a rake a come a pin brush and a slicker. At least she wasn't bad up underneath. I didn't bath her, like I did the others. She seemed clean. Poor Lassie did not like that hose at all. Ah well. She gave it back to me.
