My little beast is 7 months old now, and has exchanged his nice fluffy non-sheddy puppy fur for more grown up, classic corgi shed-monster fur. Every time I brush him (every other day), enough hair comes off to make a whole 'nother puppy. I think this may be the right time of year for a fall coat-blow... or, it could just be the shed status quo for here on out!

I've heard there are supplements that reduce shedding, but I don't trust them so I'm sticking with good quality food and the ol' brushes for now. How much do your little guys shed? What are your methods of taming it?

Yesterday was the first time that Jet has shed in a large amount. We finally got to wash him after being neutered and I brushed him after his bath. I couldn't believe that I ended up with over a handful of his fur. I was hoping that we were getting into the fall coat blow as well. Is there a specific time frame for this or is it different for every dog?
I've actually been experiencing the same thing with Stella. She was shedding just a little bit, and tiny fuzzy puppy hairs. She just recently turned 6 months old, and I'm not sure if it's the age, the time of year, or both, but she's been shedding like it's her job! I saw a shedding post on the main forum list and everyone was talking about this thing called the "Furminator." I bought one on Amazon and it should be coming soon, so I'll repost and let you know how it goes. I need something besides my regular brush because things go out of control---and fast! Everytime I pick her up, she leaves a whole other dog behind on my shirt!

Haha I know what you mean!! I asked my vet about it today when I went in for a mini-checkup, and she said that dogs shed more when the weather changes - either hotter or colder. It's (finally) getting on towards fall here, so I think my little guy may be responding to that. I've also heard there's an extra shed when they lose that fuzzy puppy coat for the big-dog coat.

Can't wait to hear how that Furminator works out! I've been hearing the name thrown around as well but since I'm such a sucker for random pet products already, I decided not to buy one. Yet. :P
The ferminator is the awesomest thing! My sister has one, and uses it on all her pets. Her corgi had enough fur brushed out to make about 3 dogs. My little girl didn't come out with that much hair after beinf brushed. But I think I will need to borrow it soon! I've got corgi hair EVERYWHERE! Haha.I agree, it must be the time of the year. And I hope her shedding slows down in the off months.
