I'm not real experienced with rotts, so I can only tell you about my own. Apollo doesn't seem to shed alot, I brush him everyday. But I have heard there are dogs that "blow" their coat everyonce in a while. Yours could be doing that. Or he may just shed more than other dogs. Some of the other members have more than one rott and could probably tell you a lot more. I think as long as it isn't excessive where he has bald spots, or is scratching alot then you really shouldn't worry. </BLOCKQUOTE>

Dogs blow their coats twice a year,unless you have a female who also blows coat before coming into season.


I can't remember what it looks like when one sheds as we have hair everywhere.I am always sweeping or vaccuming.Just part of the joy of having dogs.

Ya there are no bald spots at all with Maximus and he doesn't scratch much either. He is pretty much an indoor dog. But ya I think he maybe shedding right now due to the hot weather we are getting in NJ.


Ya I have to sweep every day. I always thought Rotties dont shed hehe.


Thanks for the info once again.
