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.

My girl Shiloh is only 5 months old but this week she seems to have started shedding heavily. Clumps of hair appearing everywhere and loose chunks of fur on her body, if I pinch on her body then I pull away a clump of hair, etc. We brushed her yesterday and pulled out a crazy amount of hair for such a small girl.

Do even puppies start blowing their coat to prepare for winter? I thought I’d read that puppies don’t really blow their coats until they’re a bit older and their adult coat has come in.

I wasn't sure so had to go look.  Take a look at this thread on the Nest which answers the question "How Old Are Huskies When They Start Shedding?"

Apparently they will lose their puppy coat at about 4-5 months ...
