Hey guys, I have a pet Daiser(Breed German shepard). He loses his hair often during summer season. Can any one tell me why and can anyone tell me the solution to stop hair falling!

All GSDs shed to a degree. In wintermonths they put on a thick coat to keep warm and shed in summer to keep cool. Consistant grooming with an appropriate brush would reduce the amount of hair during shedding. Also consider Olewo carrots as a supplemental diet in additon to commercial foods. Hope this helps.

I have an idea....just give him to me, I adore German Shepard dogs, only joking, I think the only way is a good brush every day

Also helpful in addition to brush every day, give food with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Some dog breeds lose the hairs full year. I was read also that you should use an antistatic comb.

Don´t worry: it´s their way of wearing shorts and tee shirts LOL!!! But you can groom your dog combing his hair with a comb that will take out the wool they have in winter. For really shiny hair, give your animal friend a taspoon of cooking oil once a week,

Give your dog a good brush every morning. It only takes a couple of minutes, but it will stop the hair falling all over your house and yard. I have two German Shepherds and I have their hair shedding problems pretty much under control.

Dogs grow a thick undercoat of hair to protect them from the cold then shed it as the seasons change so they don't overheat. You can't stop it, nor do you really want to. There are special combs to help remove that undercoat so that you get more of it out combing them rather than just waiting for it to shed all over your house. You should be able to find them at any pet supply store.
