• Is there a shedding season for dogs in general, Basenjis in particular? I noticed today that Ziggy is shedding like crazy, much more than just a week or so ago.

    Any ideas?

  • Typically for B's it is anytime from now through late spring… or at least that is what I have found

    Let me add to that… little bit different for bitches that have had a recent litter... they will usually blow coat about 4 to 5 months after they have had a litter... again... that is what I have found with mine...


  • I live in PA, and Senji has been blowing coat for the past month. I felt bad for him because we've been having some really cold weather.


  • Blow coat? (or "blowing coat"?) Is that another way to describe shedding?


  • Seems our's do it in the summer, but not all of them and not every year.😕


  • In CO, it's still kinda cold a couple days a week and Mejai just finished. He doesn't seem to mind the cold though, so we're OK.

    Yes, sorry…. I didn't explain...


  • Sometimes, Senji could just be laying on the floor for a few minutes and when he stands up, there's a pile of fur laying on the carpet. I've had to wash his blankets every day. I could probably knit a sweater with all the fur that gets caught in the dryer's lint filter. :rolleyes:

    Normally Nala sheds in July, but she is shedding now!!😕 😕

    Same here with Timbo thought at first he had a skin problem, it is too cold to
    change his winter coat too his summer coat :rolleyes:
