Carley is about 10 1/2 months old now and for about the last month or so, her shedding has been absolutely crazy. I've had goldens in the past, including one with severe allergies and skin issues, so I know shedding is part of the package. I've never seen this much shedding from any of my other goldens. She's on a good food (already on adult) that she seems to love. No other issues outside of a little itchiness but even that is very limited. My other goldens had two heavy shed periods a year. It's been a long while since I had a puppy so I'm wondering if there is a certain time that her true adult coat comes in and this is temporary or any insight on why it's so much hair right now!
