Yes seasonal shedding...... well at least here in the states it is. I don't know how your weather is there! Also buy the Zoom Groom brush from pet smart or petco or online at amazon......its a rubber brush and it works miracles!!!! I made a post on it. Cooper was shedding really bad a few weeks ago and I got the zoom groom and I couldn't believe how much hair I got off him. Now I brush him everyday or every other and probably would really only need to once a week or so but I hate the shedding hair I have noticed a big difference!!! I can pet him on his back several times now and not get any hair off him!
