Shedding

It's been like 11 years since I was last a mom to a pup and he wasn't a golden so I can't answer my own question >_<. My question is, do puppies shed more that adults? Cat hairs were already driving me crazy, I have a maine coon and they shed a lot throughout the year...I am now covered in white and brown/black hairs, most of them are creamy white and they belong to Rocky the pup...will the shedding be less once he's a bit older?

Thanks

Yes the shedding will slow down. Bentley lost his puppy fuzz and is now busy growing an adult coat ( or at least what looks like a winter coat). But be prepared, when the weather changes in the spring you will be cleaning up dog hair 24/7

I agree with Joyce ( Bentley's mom) our pups are almost the same age so we always relate to each other. When Chester was younger he was shedding a lot! I was constantly grooming him and finding fuzz ball hair around the house. When I would clean his crate hair was everywhere! It was hilarious seeing him chase his own little balls of fur. Now, I just brush him everyday and use a rake every two days since he is growing his fur now.

Our experience with Max seems opposite. When he was a pup, we would comment, "does not seem to shed that much." Now, at over 2 years, he is shedding a lot. We need to brush him everyday, and there are tufts of fur everywhere.

Not much shedding from Bella yet. I assume that will some day change. Our cat sheds far more.

Even if they shed the same rate, adults are lots bigger than puppies, so there is more hair to fall out. We have established a morning routine of a good brushing of both hair and teeth, which helps a lot.

Cookie had a huge shed her first spring, and now it has slowed to a consistent pace. She does shed more now as an adult though.
