dog shedding

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious what people are feeding there dogs to help with shedding. I have a yellow lab in the house along with a basset hound and morkie. If it was up to me there would be one dog but my wife kids think different anyways the lab and hound shed I was feeding my lab nutri source but the other dogs eat his food too (I feed them cheaper food) I don't want to spend a lot on food for the other two dogs but I also just want to buy one kind of food any suggestions on a good medium priced food

Purina Pro Plan....food makes a big difference in some dogs with respect to how much they shed. Also plays a big part in how much they [PoorWordUsage].

All dogs are different IMO.

Dog food and its' influence has been discussed alot on this forum.

I really don't think it matters what you are feeding them (maybe to a certain extent). I feed my lab expensive food, and he still sheds a lot. He just started shedding again this week. Not sure what that is all about...it's still darn cold out there!!!!

Dog's shed... dog's with a great - thick coat shed even more as they have more hair to shed. All part of the glory of owning a dog! some regular brushing will help mitigate some of the hair in the house... changing food won't decrease shedding.

Good Luck!

Totally agree with Labs.

My lab has a thick coat and for the last few weeks shedding like crazy. Usually a few times a year like this. When they are shedding alot I brush them, it helps some but they still leave a trail of hair!

Man, I must be lucky. My lab sheds only twice a year. Once from January to June and then again July to December. grin Plus side: she's the only critter in the house losing hair faster than me!!

I have 2 labs in the house, I swear I can bag it up, within a weeks time, and make a dog from the hair.

    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
