Postby goldenstatefan » Fri Nov 09, 2007 6:24 pm

I know pits are short haired, but how much do they shed?

Not much


But that all depends on if they're healthy or not. If you feel a low quality food, I've noticed they shed A LOT more

lol Mine shed a lot... but I also have three pits and a pit/lab mix. I don't notice the brindle hairs as much, but my boys are both white.

Oh, I forgot to add


It makes a difference if the dog has a "Short tight" coat or a longer, looser coat (not long, just longer than a short tight :) )


Short, tight's shed less (from my experience) :)

only time i see hair from daisy is when i give her a bath with the power hose to rinse out the dirt and etc after she plays in the mudd since it gives some pressure and washes away all the mud and dead loose hair... but she seems to get a nice massage out of it too lol also i barely even see 1 peice of hair since i use the furminator which i bought recently at petco with the petco member card discount! :headbang: lol

I got a rubber curry brush (item "D" on this page) and it works awesome for Daisy, and my Whippet mix, too!! Neither one sheds much, but if I curry them every couple of days, it cuts down on shedding even more. :thumbsup:

For those of you with non-shedding pits, what are you feeding?!
Maybe I thought it was normal for my dogs to shed like they do and really it's not normal....

Raw :thumbsup:. My dog doesn't shed more than 2 times a year and of course some normal lost hairs. My friend has a dog who sheds A LOT. really lots of hair, but his coat is different than Andys. Andy has a short horse coat. while that dog has a longer thicker coat.
