There may be a long list of things we love about our dogs, but shedding certainly isn't one of them. No matter what we do, hair somehow finds its way onto every surface in our homes. However, some basic grooming and coat maintenance can help control shedding!
When in doubt, reach out. If the shedding appears abnormal, or if he or she has signs of serious skin problems, consult your veterinarian. Unlike human beings, the hair growth cycle for dogs is different. Photoperiod (light intensity) is the main factor, besides nutrition, genetics and health, that can cause dogs to shed hair excessively during some seasons and therefore, can be physiological. Dogs also may shed excessive hair because of stress, worms, harsh climate and general illness.
