So... I'm assuming there's no better way around this. Just acceptance? I've read up on how much GSD's shed but to actually experience it is definitely on a whole different level.

It just seems like, once I'm done with the combing session, I can still see more coming. It's just a never ending cycle. Unless, I'm doing it wrong? I use the rake first, then the comb to finish. I brush her afterwards and seems like there are still more. These sessions take up to 30 to an hour, depending on how much she's shedding.

Also, sometimes, I'll see lighter patches by her hips. I pull it and it's like a chunk of cotton. Is that what they refer to "Blowing the coat"?
Yup, this is all normal. Try having two!
