Corgi Shedding

Posted on

Is there anything that sheds like a corgi? I mean really truly? Clyde has officially started blowing his coat and there is fur everywhere!!!! I think it’s even an understatement to say everywhere. Clyde got his bath on Sunday and I have to say it must have loosened up all of the hair just waiting to come out! Holy cow! He’s already been brushed twice and it looks like a fur-snow shower all over the lawn.

However, when you see this face how can anyone really get mad or even annoyed? Gosh he’s adorable!

What do you guys use to handle shedding? Clyde’s regimen is to be brushed and brushed again. He gets baths, but I really try not to give him those very often because I don’t want to dry out his skin. Some family friends of mine give their dog a raw egg with his food every morning and they have noticed a significant drop in shedding for them. I learned before I even got Clyde that corgis shed 24/7/365. There’s no “season” there are just certain times of the year that it is worse than others.

I sweep and vacuum my house about once a week or right before people are going to be coming over. I realize that not everyone has a dog and appreciates the fur from having an indoor dog. So I try to be courteous of that fact. What about you guys? Do you guys take any special precautions before people come over? Do you have a special regimen you put your furbaby through to control the shedding?
