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.

Hi everyone. My guy is shedding very heavy already. Has anyone come across this. Usually this doesn't start until mid-September. We've had really hot weather all summer so far, and except for a few cooler days lately, it's still hot. We're in New Jersey. He's also very itchy. His coat is soft, his skin is fine. I can't figure this out....any thoughts would be appreciated Smile

Sounds like he's blowing his coat. It just depends on the dog on when they start to blow. My oldest started several weeks ago, and I know a lot of members here have had some of their dogs start early this year as well.

It can vary sometimes. My sibe doesn't normally blow coat this time of year but I've noticed his shedding has picked up a bit over the past week. He's not in full on coat blow, but he is shedding a bit more...although, I've noticed this past week the temps have been a little lower (Yay!).

I guess this crazy weather has something to do w/it - his coat doesn't know what time of year it is! lol Thanks for sharing! Smile
