Well my Pugs shed like they are molting all year round. Its very normal for the breed but also very disgusting because it gets EVERYWHERE! I have started supplimenting their food with "The Missing Link" and it has cut is down AMAZINGLY! But there is still a LOT!I also have a "furminator" that I use weekly. I love Pugs and will ALWAYS have them but I wish they'd create a non shedding Pug! That would be the greatest thing that could ever happen to the breed. Any ideas besides what we are already doing?

I find that decorating ones house so that it looks like a snowglobe helps.

On crappy kibble Cooper shed like CRAZY. I couldn't pick him up without being covered. When I switched him to premium foods I noticed a tremendous reduction in that. Still a bit on me and on like my bed where his spot to sleep is. Since switching to raw his shedding is nearly non-existent. I'd venture to say he only sheds about as much as my min pin does now, which means a bit after bathtime and that's about it.

Not sure if you're interested in switching up your pups diet but I'll more than testify raw has helped in that realm. All of them used to blow coat a few times a year too. We made the switch in February and there hasn't been any more of those since then either.way to go

I found Lipiderm helps to keep Huck's shedding to just small black blobs instead of large ones and he has a beautiful shiney coat too. I think feeding a quality diet is really important as well and he is on Merrick's Cowboy Cookout and as a topper canned Wellness Stew or Taste of the Wild
