Japanese Chin Question

how much do they shed?

    In Japanese Chin - Asked by Anonymous - 1/3/2013 11:07:43 AM
I have read that Japanese Chins are average shedders...I, as a breeder, think that they may be a bit above average depending on the time of the year. If you brush you chin often it will help alot. All dogs shed..it's just whether or not they loose the shed hair or have it become matts, all dogs shed. The myth of dogs that don't shed is just that...a myth. If you don't mind putting up with some seasonal shedding, the Japanese Chin is the toy breed of choice.

It really depends on the time of year. In the winter and spring time my chin sheds quite a bit. So much actually that there's clumps of fur in the corners of the rooms if I don't brush him at least twice a day. In the summer and fall though he barely sheds. In fact, if I brush him once a day I don't even notice he sheds.
