Dropping Coat in Winter?

Please fill me in on how often Goldens "drop their coat"? Winter has had the normal Golden shedding, but this week, it seems that she is parting with a HUGE amount of fur! She is 13 months old, and this is her first "big shed". Is she losing her puppy coat? It is so cold here that I thought she'd keep her coat. Is it because we have the heat on in the house (not hot, but normal indoor temperature).

I noticed just this week that Hank has been shedding more than usual. I think it's our crazy weather, 60s one day, 30s the next, then back to 60 again.

I think that was about the age that Jacks REALLY blew his coat. I believe that was an age thing vs seasonal thing. I brush him every other day so that probably helps, but he doesn't really shed.

Unless the dogs spend a lot of time outside, I don't think their coats are affected by the change of seasons to the extent they will actually blow their coats in spring, etc.

Jonah usually has a winter shed too. If your puppy is having her first shed then it will be huge. Hope you have a good vaccum!

My dogs usually have two big sheds, early summer and early winter
