Dogs in biological lingo do not moult but shed their hair which they do twice a year. The shedding in the season of spring and summer is more intense. Shedding cannot be stopped, however it can be curtailed, one way is to brush more often.

The routine to be followed is combing or brushing the hair and periodically getting it cut by a specialist. Other inputs include the use of shedding blade for some species of dogs and a purchase of a good vacuum

Shedding irregularly may be a sign of an allergic condition or as a result of a poor diet with the typical symptoms being a rough skin from which a typical odor emanates while the dog's coat appears lusterless and patchy. A vet should be visited if the dog scratches itself frequently to the point of developing bloody sores on its body.
