Coat & Grooming Questions
So...some coat and grooming questions for everyone.
1. Denver turned one this past Thursday and about a month prior was shedding like CRAZY. No clumps or anything but literally we would lightly pet him and have a handful of hairs, he would shake and you could see the hair falling to the ground...not to mention it was all over the house! Is this normal?? He still has a full thick coat though it feels a little less puffy than before. I read that it's normal for them to have a coat blow around 12 months even though it happened in August?
2. He has this longer/thicker patch of hair on his shoulders. It's darker than the rest of his coat. Could this be his real adult coat coming in? (in the first photo his hackles are UP because he heard geese honking in the river, but the second one you can see the long shoulder hairs up close..)
3. I've been trying to practice my grooming. I'm pretty sure I butchered the ears today but I think I did okay on the feet. The photos are one finished foot and one undone foot. Thoughts? Tips? Tricks?
Thank you for the help!
