Anyone else have a GS shedding now?

My 8 yr male has been shedding / blowing his coat the last 2 weeks. Just wondering if anyone else's GS is doing it. It is much more than in Spring. Of course I groom him every day, it helps some.

Re: Anyone else have a GS shedding now?

Welcome to the site! What is your location, I think the weather makes a difference with the coat blowing time...
My 14.5 yr golden/border cross had a bag full of fur when I brushed her today. She is so old that her coat just grows and grows but her exercise is none so she is soo feathered and thick. I could get another bag of fur if I kept brushing her, but she was worn out with one.

Yes, Renji just started recently. Today I furminated some fluffy dog-clouds off of him and will have to do more tomorrow. We're in Florida, and the season's shifted from monsoon season to hurricane/mosquito season.

Im in New Jersey, I'm sure its related to the shorter days. Thanks for responding, it lets me know its normal. I've had Sheppards for years but don't remember fall shedding.

Re: Anyone else have a GS shedding now?

my dogs are off track, which i cant decided if its good or bad. my male long coat blew his coat back in... hm... say june. my female short stock coat just started a few weeks ago and man its bad. in two days i can develop a fur coating over my upstairs carpet. they generally shed a bit, but never clumps. i can semi furminate her (but man do i hate that thing) but brush them both daily using a combination of tools. vacuuming is up to every other day (so glad i only have carpet in one room)

Re: Anyone else have a GS shedding now?

Onyx blew her coat in June too, for the first time. She will be 2 in Nov. I feed raw and my gsd's don't shed nearly as much as the others I am around. I do vac. every day if possible, though just to keep the fluffs from taking over. Two long coats and a short coat, along with birds, the vac is really getting a work-out.

You mean there is a time when they don't shed?
