    Default Finally the shedding is slowing down.....

    We live in AZ so the weather has warmed up a ton here.... and the shedding has been horrid the last 30 days.... but it seems to have finally slowed down! YAY! So my guess is that it takes approx. 3 weeks to a month to blow the winter coat!

    You're ahead of us. The BIG SHED will start when the weather warms up for good, maybe May.

    Lucky you! We've had some heat wave's but we haven't officially warmed up yet so I haven't got to that point yet! I vacuum our floor downstairs everyday anyway so I probably won't even notice a difference LOL

    Actually Duke hasn't been to bad this year. I think it's because I curry comb him about twice a month.

    @Mike Blaylock we use a rubber curry type comb, 4-H kids use them on their pigs when they show them!

    I didn't know that warmer weather will cause them to do that. There's just so much to learn!

    I have 3 ionic breezes in my house... But it does not help the dog hair but it improves the air quality!!

    I haven't really noticed a specific shedding season, per say, with Delilah. It seems like it's a little bit year round.

    She doesn't shed a whole lot..but she does shed enough! Those little barby hairs that you can't get out of your clothes..

    We haven't started the major shed yet .. but I did notice a few weeks ago when it started to get a LITTLE warmer that the two bullies and Bear, the lab mix, were definitely leaving more hair around the house. We have only just started to get a little warmer, so I'm sure I have the "Big Shed" to come in the next couple of weeks. Nothing more disgusting than seeing the dog hair dust bunnies roll by about the size of a tennis ball .. about 20 minutes after you thought you'd finished vacuuming!!
