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.
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)
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.
Yeah I'm in Florida and kenzo started to blow his coat off almost a month ago, now it slowed down a little bit. I was confused a little bit too, I don't know how i will handle when i get my 2nd shepherd though)
I feel everyone's pain here...Zeus is definitly blowing his coat. There is so much hair around the house it's unreal. You walk by and rub your hands through him and hair is everywhere. I am so glad that Electra has not started to blow her coat. Fingers crossed
She just started up.
She getting her picture taken professional on Sunday.
I wanted her to look her best. I spent 1 hr. before her bath &
1 hr. after brushing & combing. I know I'll have to do a bit more on Saturday, but most of it is gone.
