What should I do if my chihuahua sheds so much?

Question by petlover: What should I do that my chihuahua sheds so much?
I have tried shedding shampoos and they don’t work. Plus I brush her daily. Someone told me that his chihuahua doesn’t shed a lot only yearly. However, when my chihuahua sits on anybodys lap usually there will be a lot of hair on that person. It’s embarrassing. Please if anyone knows anything that might help or why she sheds so much please let me know thanx!

Naturally, dogs shed. It shouldn’t be that bad for much longer since it is about to be fall/winter. The majority of their shedding is done during the spring/summer seasons because it helps keep them cool by loosing excess hair.
Just keep brushing her twice daily- that’s about all you can do. Also, invest in a lint-roller so you can let people get the hair off easily from their clothes.

  2. Carrie O'Labrad says:

    Make sure you are using a high quality food.

    Besides that and brushing, there isn't too much you can do.
    It's a tiny dog, how much can it shed?

  3. Brookie's mum says:

    It could be the food or shampoo you are using…it could also be the weather change

  4. chihuahuas (especially short haired) shed year round, they are NOT a seasonal shedder…

    however diet does play a large roll on how much the dog sheds, try a better quality food with an omega 3 (fish oil) supliment!

  5. dog shed no biggy to min. brush daily and dont bath to often
