Dogs with a pre-determined coat length shed more than dogs with undetermined coat length. Pre-determined means the coat will only grow to a certain length, then fall out to make room for new hair to replace it. The shorter the coat, the more often it replaces itself. Undetermined coat length is much like our own hair, in that it will continue to grow until we cut it. However, this type of coat still does shed, just like human hair does.
We’ve welcomed dogs into our homes, and as such, their shedding seasons which are naturally in tune with seasonal temperatures and hours of sunlight, become diluted as they are subjected to un-natural indoor temperatures and perceived length of daylight hours from indoor lighting, confusing your dogs rhythm as to when shedding season really is.
Brushing your dog daily will help keep his hair on your brush, and off your carpet, as well as stimulating the blood flow to his skin, and helping to spread his natural oils throughout his coat, keeping both skin and coat wonderfully healthy. Also, it’s just good to spend one on one time with your dog. Isn’t that why you have him?
