Hi

Just wondering how much Chihuahua's shed?
Is there a big difference with long coats or short coats?

Do they shed year round or more in summer?

Many Thanks

Long hairs generally only shed their seasonal coats a couple of times a year.

It varies with short hairs. Some shed a lot some while others shed very little. Each dog is different. However their shedding takes place all throughout the year.

Rocky is a shorthair (even though he does have some longer parts) and he does shed quite a bit. I just have ordered some skin and coat treatment which shall help with the shedding. Also you can keep it under control using a furminator :).
Don't really know about longcoats though.
