Shedding - when will it happen?

My girl will be six months old in 17 days and I've yet to have a single problem with shedding, despite the breed being known as "German shedders", but I'm expecting that her first blow out will hit me out of nowhere soon and bury me in a mountain of fur. Should I expect her to start shedding soon?

Mine didn't get bad until around a year, and then it got BAD. Now is the time to be saving up for your roomba lol!

Winter is coming... Go ahead and order a furminator off amazon they are like $15, and get your vacuum ready.

Dang, most people ask when will the shedding ever stop lol! All I can say is be careful what you ask for. In all seriousness, Kairo didn't shed for a while, and I thought man, we got lucky! Ummm no, as soon as summer hit, off it came.


x2 on the Furminator & Roomba, btw.

Don't worry, it will happen ... and it will never stop, lol. A pretty accurate cliche is that GSD's shed once a year, for 365 days ... while this is true, they will generally 'blow coat' twice a year - in the spring/summer as the winter undercoat is replaced by summer, and the opposite in the fall/winter. The rest of the year they still shed though, just at a more manageable rate, lol.

Enjoy the lack of shedding while you can ... it will end soon

My long haired boy gives me handfuls of fur and hair every day. My gal is stock coat and I swear she drops it all day long so when I brush her in the evening I don't get nearly as much hair. I have to sweep it all up. My dogs are ages 4 1/2 and almost 3.

I wish I could enjoy the lack of shedding, but I'm already up to my neck in husky and malamute hair, haha!

I'm prepared for whatever hair my GSD pup will throw at me. My lungs have already been infused with hair from years of inhaling husky/malamute hair. I am invinsible.
