Not at all. Only time I notice at all is on white sheets. Even then it's just a few hairs.

I still use the rubber brush on her a few times a week thinking it gets her oils moving around. Not an expert with that stuff. Even with the brush barely any hair comes off.

Lios has a soft, slick, luxurious and shining coat. We must brush him every day...especially at this time of the year. Thyroid studies normal. I often wonder if this rich coat goes along with his extremely heavy nails that grow so rapidly. Even our breeder is impressed.

Compare to the way our Lab sheds, I'd say Tikka's shedding is not noticeable.

Okay... I had to change my vote.. I just THOUGHT Sofia shed a lot.. I do wipe her down with baby wipes and brush her several times a week. She's a fawn with a thyroid condition, and compared to some of the other answers.."It's not that bad"
Interesting thread. Thanks

Sascha sheds a lot! When I sweep I end up with 80% dog hair, and that's just one dog. Her fur is soft, but it's everywhere. I keep thinking, or hoping, as it gets colder she'll stop or at least slow down, but no. I actually think it's getting worse. I can only imaging what it's going to be like this spring.

indy sheds more from her tail than she does from the rest of her body.

the house doesn't seem to have much hair around, but the back of the car is absolutely covered in hair!

Isabell is a fawn and dont really shed. Henry on the other hand sheds like crazy. The one thing Ive found that really helps with him is, I give him a bath shampoo then conditioner. When I condition I really scrub him good and the hair just seems to fling out. It looks like I gave him a haircut in the shower when Im done. AND he's so nice and soft afterwards.

Eli is not too bad. He shed a LOT on the way home from the rescue, and for the first week or so. Getting him into a stable environment, diet, and climate I am sure makes a big difference.

Aksel is horrible, If i have a clean shirt on and hug him i have to change. It seems he got a little worse when the cold hit. Im hoping part of it is that his coat is changing texture from his puppy coat and hopefully he wont shed as much after...I can hope!

I barely notice the shedding at all. He's only 10 months and a couple weeks, but I haven't really noticed much at all. I'm not sure if he's going to shed more as he hits adulthood, but I wouldn't say adult Dobes shed that much.

Also, I guess it's what you perceive as shedding a lot. At work, we have a therapy dog (lab), and he sheds like crazy. When I come home to my Dobe, I barely notice it. The only thing I really notice is hair where he sleeps on the bed, and the sheets are white so it's much easier to notice black hair on white sheets.

My last Doberman Gabriel shed a lot too, if you were to pet him at the end you would have a handful of hair. I used to work as a dog groomer and knew of this product called FURminator FURminator® Official Site it really works if your consistent with it. I would wash Gabriel every other week with the FURminator shampoo and conditioner and then follow up with the brush, it was amazing, after about 3 washes he hardly shed any hair at all. You can buy it at your local pet store for the most part but it is so worth the cost of how much it is.

Our first dobe - Bekky, she used to shed a lot (I would vacuum and in half hour I could start again, or when some one would pet her there are would be a pile of fur) We went to see our vet numerous times and always were told everything is ok. She never had any bold spots
Now that we have Zarah usually I need to clean (and I have to admit "I'm clean freak") once a week. You can see few hairs here and there but not a lot. If she is shedding a lot - something is wrong (she is not feeling well), so it's became my one of the first indicators that she might be sick.

For the most part Toby doesnt appear to shed that much, saying that the back of the seat in the car is sprinkled with Doberhairs so he does lose his coat a bit. At the moment he is in the process of changing his coat so I am expecting to see more hair than usual.

The worst culprits for shedding are my 2 Terriers, they are hairy little monsters with thick ruffles on the back of their neck that are a nightmare.

On a scale of 1-10 Toby rates 3 possibly 4
My terriers rate 7 to 7.5.

Ami sheds like a banshee.

We were at the vet yesterday, and just from me petting her there, she was sitting in a circle of little black dobe hair.

Bentley isn't too bad when he's not shedding. However when he went into a shed in early May I was blown away by the amount of hair coming off him. There seemed to be enough for a second dog lol!

Get a Roomba!!!! Best thing ever invented. I don't have any carpet in my house and I refuse to sweep, because it just slings the dirt everywhere. I set the roomba to start at 5pm and by the time I get home the house has been vacuumed. I break out the big vacuum like once every 2 weeks. I'm telling you it is a life saver. They are pretty pricey but worth the investment.

Gunner sheds a lot more than I ever anticipated. His coat is soft and shiny and he's on a high quality food, but he leaves a ton of hair lying around. I brush him at least 3 times a week and still usually vacuum and sweep daily to keep the dog hair from piling up. The hair is annoying but nothing compared to the Shetland Sheepdog fur I had to deal with while growing up

I don't much notice Elka shedding. There will be an occasional stray hair on things, but unless it's one of her rust hairs, it might as well be an eyelash for all I can tell the difference.

Now, when I wash the slipcovers from the couches, there are all kinds of needle-y Doberman hairs in the dryer's lint trap, but that's the only time I notice them in quantity.

Rou is going on 7 months in about 1.5 weeks and I have yet to notice shedding unless he is given a bath. Then I only notice a hair here or there. This may change as he gets older though, who knows!

Very interesting thread.

As with EmilyB and a few other Moms, I have a GSD.
Claire is perfect so I can live with the hair.
I vacuum floors every day, sigh, but the tumble weeds still come rolling out from corners and other spots I was sure I covered.
Usually its when company walks in the door.

We have had 3 Dobes and none have shed.
They have all slept in the bed, inevitably under the covers at some point, and I never have Dobe hair on my pillow.

And I will take Frankie.
