Dog Hair Shedding
In most cases, dog fur sheds naturally and is part of the genetic makeup of many different breeds of pooch. Dog hair loss in this manner is to some degree commonplace in most canines. Springtime is probably the time of the year when you may notice your dog shedding hair the most and, is nothing to worry about.
Some breeds actually have what in effect you could consider are two coats in one. Collie Dogs for instance have this. This is often referred to as an animal having a ‘double coat’. It’s a bit like your loft insulation in your home. Having a second coat in the winter and colder months, helps keep the heat in and close to the body, keeping the creature warm. Conversely, in the hotter summer months, it has the opposite effect and keeps heat out.
With your dog shedding you have a couple of options open to you. You can either wait for it to drop out naturally or you can get somebody to comb it out for you. Regular sessions with Blossoms Pet Care will help you keep on top of this and can reduce the amount of hair around your home.
