To Shed Or Not To Shed

_DSC0694.jpg1

Most Newfies shed moderately year round but they tend to shed the heaviest in the Spring and Fall.

This type of shedding is often referred to as blowing coat because that is exactly what happens.

Blowing coat normally takes place in the Spring and helps keep Newfies nice and cool during the Summer months and then again in the Fall to make way for a new undercoat to grow in to keep them nice and warm in the Winter months.

There is absolutely nothing you can do to stop them from blowing coat because it happens on it’s own. For the next several weeks you just deal with it and you brush and you brush and you brush.

Sherman and Leroy are blowing their coats right on cue this month.

This is a pile that I brushed out of Sherman in about 20 minutes.

There’s probably at least 20 more piles of that waiting to come out this month.

That’s just out of Sherman.

Leroy probably has about 30 more piles that need to come out of just his chest.

The Golden's blow their coats too, but not to that extent! :)

And I thought the stuff coming out of Poppy was bad enough

I had rough collies growing up. They might not be as big as a Newf but their piles of fur were even bigger!

My Kuvasz sister Katie is the same way except that much or more comes out year round!
