Problem with excessive shedding/Husky/Lab

Post by TLLe » Thu, 28 Oct 1999 04:00:00



We have a beautiful and sweet Husky/Lab that constantly sheds.  You can
see hair fall when he walks. The vet says there is nothing to worry
about but could not tell me why it is so bad.  Has anyone had any
experience with this problem?  How have you handled it?  As of now I
just need to buy stock in pet hair removers.  Thanks  TLLee

Not a big problem thats part of the husky & labs. They both shed. Ir you get
a grooming Rake & go through him. Then in the bath get a *** hand held
grooming brush before the shampoo. Then do it while shampooing. Use it while
conditioning too. Yep I said conditioning... It helps the hair come on out.
Then Blow dry him. It also helps the hair come out. This Wont make him stop
shedding but if its done on a regular basis it will lessen the hair that
comes out every where. Good Luck!
 Let us know how it goes!

  Shedding rate is genetic -- though Labs are not known to be really bad
shedders.  Huskies tend to be, though.   And if it is possible that your dog
has German shepherd ***, in my experience German shepherds or even mixes are
the sheddingest dogs there are.  

  Unless your dog is developing bald areas, you can at least rest assured that
it is not a health problem.  It's just an annoyance you have to find a way to
deal with.

We gave a Husky/Lab mix, my SO says the proper term is Siberian Huskador
Retriever and she sheds like TLLee's dog, too.  BTW she gets shampooed and
conditionered and blow-dried too.
