Our corgi Jeter was a shedder.
When we hugged or just petted him before a lot of fur comes off and we were literally covered with his fur.
Nothing was safe from his hairballs in our house and we used the lint rollers like crazy.
But those days are gone. Jeter does not shed any more :-)
Along with "no shedding", his poop is not stinky. His coat looks really good.
are not sure what exactly makes our little shedding machine to stop shedding but just assume that new food and increased exercise would be the reason.
About a month ago, we started mix new 'customized'
dog food(High Protein Lamb & Potato Fusion) to Jeter's old food(Wellness) and increased the amount of new food everyday.
is grain, gluten, soy, rice, wheat and corn free. Also we picked two free supplements, one of them is 'High gloss skin & coat makeover'.
His new food is not cheap (price is quite stiff) but after a month of trial we decided to order it again.
One more thing is he exercises more.
In addition to his everyday walk(3
times a day), when the winter weather is over we added more exercise for him.
Now I take him out to the forest trail at least 3-4 times a week. Each time Jeter walk/jog 3-5 miles.
Just like human runner's training, I am going to increase mileage and speed gradually.
Even though I don't register any marathon this year but still Jeter can be my running partner :-)
But I just wonder... maybe it is not the shedding season? Maybe it is just coincidental?
No matter what is the reason for "no shedding", we will keep doing what we are doing.
Wish us luck :-)
