Do Lancashire Heelers shed a lot of hair?
In general terms a Lancashire Heeler does not shed too much hair, especially if they are of the very flat, smooth coated type. Some Lancashire Heelers are a little 'fluffier' in that they have a thicker undercoat and this type of coat will yield more hair when brushing, especially at moult times. Heelers usually moult twice a year although an extended and warm summer does seem to extend the shedding time.
An unusually long and hot summer means an unusual amount of hair!
