Our cherished dogs bring us endless joy, but the inevitable shedding that comes with many breeds can be a challenge to manage. When shedding season comes around, it’s essential to be prepared. According to the American Pet Products Association, there are over 65 million dog-owning households in the United States, so shedding is a common concern. Are you prepared to handle seasonal shedding in your home?

Understanding Seasonal Shedding in Dogs

In addition to year-round shedding, dogs that shed tend to experience more shedding during the changing of the seasons, whether it’s from warmer weather to colder weather, or vice versa. In the spring, dogs that shed will lose their heavier coat (as well as dead or damaged hair) in preparation for the upcoming summer. As fall arrives, dogs that shed will drop their coats to make room for incoming new growth that will help to insulate them and keep them warmer in the winter. All of this seasonal shedding leaves its mark around your home.

Your pet’s coat consists of hair, undercoat, and dander, all of which can distribute allergens (and odors) in the air. While pet hair is easy enough to see and pick up, airborne pet dander isn’t as easy to eliminate. Even for people who don’t have allergies, inhaling dog dander can lead to sinus and nasal membrane inflammation, which can be mistaken for seasonal allergies or mild cold symptoms. So, while your dog readies for seasonal changes by shedding their coat, you might find yourself grappling with sneezing fits and an escalating indoor mess.
