Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Mako seems to be shedding his entire coat. Is this normal for a puppy? It's coming off in giant clumps. I know this is normal for the big one (and its that time of the year), but mako is only 5ish months. Do puppies blow their coat fully before getting their adult hairs?

Sidebar: we have him on the soresto collar for fleas and ticks and I read one of the side effects is hair loss so I'm a little paranoid.

Some just start earlier than others and it looks like it is his time. As long as the coat beneath looks healthy and there aren't any full on bald spots I would just go with it. Baby is growing up. Sad

That looks like a pretty normal coat blow, but he looks like he needs some help getting it off.

Do you brush him regularly?

He looks like he needs a few sessions with an undercoat rake or shedding comb Smile I have that shedding comb and it's a miracle for $9

I can't believe he's already blowing his coat Crying or Very sad they grow up so fast. I haven't really started brushing him much. Just a little bit when we brush Kai to get him used to it. I guess this weekend will be a serious brush session.
