How often do Siberian Huskies shed their undercoats?
Undercoats are the thick, dense layers of fur that help to insulate dogs against the cold weather. Most dogs shed their undercoats once or twice a year, but Siberian Huskies shed theirs 2-3 times per year. The biggest shedding periods occur during the spring and fall, as the days become longer or shorter. However, you may also notice your dog shedding more during the summer and winter, as the temperature changes can also trigger a shed. If you’re concerned about all the fur your dog is losing, there are a few things you can do to reduce shedding. First, make sure you’re regularly grooming your dog – brushing will help to remove loose fur and prevent matting.
How can I reduce Siberian Husky Shedding?
Spring & Summer Seasonal Transition Shedding Periods
While spring brings in sunshine and warmer temperatures your Siberian husky is more often than not shedding its under coat in preparation for the upcoming summer months. To combat this, we recommend daily brushings to help with excess shedding. If you live in southern climates, you will want to keep a daily routine of brushing for your Siberian Husky to reduce the chances of heat exhaustion during the warm summer months.
