Hair Shedding and grooming

912 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  melgrj7
HI, I will be getting a puppy this Saturday, she is a german shepherd mix. I want to know if I comb her once or twice a day, will there still be a lot of hair that comes off of her or very very very VERY little? lol. I bought the furbuster grooming comb from walmart which I guess is like the furminator, so hopefully this will make it easier to groom her.

If she's amix there's no real way to tell but if she takes after her GSD side expect a lot of hair. GSDs are often called German Shedders by those that love 'em. LOL
Yup, yup! I love my "German Shedders" but, as skelaki said, if your dog takes anything after the GSD expect LOTS of hair. I brush mine every day at feeding time and keep a brush next to the chair I sit in while watching TV. Whoever sits next to me get brushed while I'm watching. Oh, and I keep a small plastic bag there as well to put the hair in. Needless to say, it's always full. :p
I have a saying in my house, and for good reason; "What do you mean dog hair isn't a condiment or fashion accessory?" :D

and the pound puppy crew.
