My smooth coat sheds a lot so I've stopped him from coming in on the lounge because I hate dog hair going everywhere especially on ur clothes. Do long haired chihuahuas shed as much as smooth coats? How can I prevent them from shedding ?

I don't know anything about LC chis, but Lulu sheds more this time of year. Also, the 2 months of March and April that she was on ZP she didn't shed 10 hairs! I have started her on Acana and Nupro that advertises they will not "blow their coat." I intend to give the Nupro 2 months like they say to get in their system and if she is still shedding I will call them and advise them she still sheds.

Finding little clumps doesn't sound normal.

My 3 don't lose hair at all, but they are fed on raw & Ziwipeak.

Even after I've bathed all 3 and let the wash water out, after 3 heavy duty shampoos, there's no hair in the waste catcher at all, none. Same with the rinse water, still no hairs in the waste catcher.

Molly(our only short coat) sheds like crazy, but our long coats,we never have a problem with them shedding.If it continues,it may be an allergy he has developed.

Both of my dogs are shedding. I use a kong zoom groom and they both love it! It works great on double coats like gildas and short coats like picos

just took a pic of the 2 furballs i found. sometimes its like a circular clump and sometimes its like the big wad of hair LOL...how about urs?



someone told me it could be the extreme hot weather we been having too. today was a high 90's but we have AC inside the house...could just be the air itself since its been so humid and yucky >.< oh yea i wanted to ask has ur pup been shaking his head like hes tryin to get somethin off of his fur? dex does this every once in a while after scratchin around his neck or head area
