How much does your dobe shed?

I always thought that dobes weren't too bad of shedders compared to some other breeds. Colt sheds A LOT. I mean I know he isn't a poodle and I totally expect him to shed, but I swear he sheds just as much as my GSD, only short hair rather than long...If he lays down in one spot, a spot that he has never been on before, he leaves a million black hairs there when he gets up, no kidding. If he lays on a clean piece of clothing, there's so much hair that it has to be washed, it can't just be vacuumed or rolled off with a sticky roller. Colt is on what I consider a good kibble (Taste of the Wild) so I don't think it's malnutrition and he's brushed weekly. He also doesn't have dry skin, so I don't think that contributes to it. I just thought I'd ask to see how other's dobes were about shedding.

I haven't had piles of hair like you describe. Fish oil helps a lot, and brushing a couple times a week. But I do Swiffer the wood floors 3 times a week.

Their hairs are persistent though, aren't they? I've even found them in the refrigerator!

Barely any! Only a couple of hairs when I started coming him at 4 months. Maybe because he's still a baby?

Keira is a moderate shedder. Not too bad, but there's still quite a bit of dober hair around the house. Winston (our last Dobe) shed a lot. He had a different coat than Keira though -- it was softer and a little thicker, but still smooth. He also didn't eat the same quality food as Keira, as his system just couldn't handle it, so I'm sure that contributed to his shedding.

We have a gsd so dobe shedding is mucho secondary...

However, my newest rescue sheds a lot. She's got big hairy ears, and has obviously not lived much beside my gas fireplace.

Suddenly I have more dobie hairs on my coffee table than GSD hairs...eeeeek...

I really only notice Doberhair when I sweep. But when I do, there's a pretty good pile of it.

Now the cat, on the other hand...sheesh!!

Anna doesn't shed much but she has a finer coat than her brother, Rex, who sheds tons, when I take the grooming stone to him I get hand fulls, it amazes me, but his father was the same. Grace and Abba are moderate. Of course my van seems to always be coated in black dobe hair.

No one can talk about shedding until you have a dober hair stuck in your tooth!
Saph sheds a fair amount i would say, and she has such a coarse coat that it pricks into everything.

thea2001 Please stop biting your dog so your teeth won't get hair stuck there. . I use a damp towel every morning after my pups free run, and it helps alot. His first year here after being shipped (serbia)has been difficult on his coat and color. But it has seem to improve now, except for him sun bathing you can tell he's a brown as opposed to a red. I curry him out 1 to 2 times a week, along with his warm water towel down. Von.

One sheds more than another. But they aren't that bad at all.
My smooth coated old Chihuahua sheds way more than both of them combined.

With Nina and Django (so far) I notice no hair. Never did when it was just Nina either (obviously). But both Briggs and Quinto were BIG TIME shedders. There would be hair all over the steps and floors in the creases near the baseboards. I felt I had to vacuum a lot. They both got fish oil capsules, but I didn't brush much. Maybe I should have.

All of my Dobes of all color have shed a fair amount and those stiff short hairs are persistent, catch in fabrics, stick in carpet etc.

I don't brush my dogs--I found that a rough, damp terry cloth towel would remove loose hair very effectively as well as any surface dirt he might have accumulated. Worked much better than a brush on the short coat.

I'm not a fan of using a curry--for some Dobes with sensitive skin you'll end up with folliculititis and if you are unlucky may end up with a nice case of staph.

Typically my black dogs have shed more than any other color (including the fawn dog I have now--who does have hair). Dogs with longer, softer coats shed more than those with the correct short hard coats. And puppies shed much less than adults. Most puppies will shed out a first puppy coat at around 5-6 months and will go through another shed at around a year. My adults shed more heavily in the spring but also have a seasonal shed period in the fall. But the bottom line is that they all shed all the time--the Aussie could beat them all hollow though when he was shedding undercoat in the spring and fall--I could sweep up drifts of Aussie undercoat on a daily basis.

Neither of mine really shed a lot. Now mind you...I stopped buying white sheets a loooong looooong time ago LOL!

Dobes have owned me for over 35 years...so I guess I'm just used to whatever shedding they do. I know my family had a GSD when I was younger. Unreal wonderful Dog...but boy could she shed. We'd vacuum every day after we moved to Florida!!

Very little in the winter; more, of course, in the spring. All Creatures Great and Small The Lord God Made Them All.

I think the black dobes tend to shed more. Their coat is thicker.

I would say I deal with moderate shedding, but thats having 3. My Dane sheds a TON!

Odin sheds like there is no tomorrow. Holy heck... I'm surprised he has such an amazing coat for the amount he sheds. It's ridiculous, if I don't hang my towels up and just toss it on the bed I can pick it up and the next time I shower I'm covered in dog hair.

I find this interesting as I didn't realize there would be a significant difference within the same breed....

I also agree with Von - the warm washcloth works for dogs but also for furniture or clothing - far better than a sticky roller.

Would you like to see what I get off of a 3-minute brush seesion with Frankie using a slicker? And this is after another 20-minute brushing session earlier in the week. This may help you feel better.

Barely shed here. Tundra has a nice rich soft coat. Not coarse. He is also on dermacaps which I say helped his bald stip down the middle of his back. It is very shiny now.

On more than one occasion while teaching a class (not a dog class), I have had to take my shoe and sock off to find a hair penetrating the skin of my big toe - and you have to be careful about getting it out and not break it off - much like a cactus hair. I have tough feet and have always found this to be strange.

I have had dogs that shed a lot but my current ones don't tend to shed that much - the mixed breed sheds the most. The place where I find it to be the most annoying is in the car on the headrests - the hairs get in there and vacuuming doesn't make much difference - you need sticky tape to rip them off & out.

Wow! This is SO interesting! I am learning about Dobes. I would have guessed the shedding issue to be minor......guess I was wrong! I had a GSD and she would lie down as soon as you turned on the vacuum (even if it wasn't for her) cause she was trained to BE vacuumed! She loved it. Still had to brush her, but she would lay there like she was at a spa! Then you just had to "rotissere" her to get the other side!

The "little hair" thing is one of the things that attracted me to Dobermans! Oh well...........!
