As you know I also have a Nordic breed, an Alaskan Malamute. Like I said above, they "blow" their coat twice a year. Here's a couple of pics to give you an idea what it's like when we try to reduce the shedding during that period by using a rake and blower! This is a friends dog, we get together to do our dogs so we can save each other from drowning, LOL!
Now THIS is what shedding is, imagine if not done all at once with our help, all this falls out over a couple of weeks. The house looks like we had a snow storm! This is also with daily brushing! Don't you feel better
And this is the floor underneath the table afterwards:[IMG]
