Do Lancashire Heelers shed a lot of hair?

In hot summers more hair than usual may be shed from your Lancashire Heeler

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!
