Question by Brooke and Ollie Fish: Do short hair dachsunds shed more during the summer?
My 1 1/2 year old mini dachsund has seemed to shed a lot this summer…..this is his first summer as an adult and I just notice that his hair is somewhat thinner on his sides and his neck. I know they shed a little during the summer. He is a short hair and I am just wandering if this is normal. I have a 4 month old mini too and her hair is thick and healthy, maybe I am worrying over nothing! Does anyone have any ideas. I just want to make sure that it is nothing I need to consult my vet about.

SPring is the time for most shedding. Stress does cause excessive shedding. It is not uncommon for doxies to have less hair on the neck/chest area under the chin.
