I have a Chow mix and she sheds in globs spring and fall, but needs to be brushed several times a week, year round. I'm very puzzled that Chows are not listed as heavy shedders..

As a professional groomer in Central Virginia for more than 15 years, I've noticed that the "heavy shedders" mentioned above do have a different coat that grows in after repeated shaving.

It's almost as if Nature says "Still feeling air on my skin so double the
undercoat!"
Soon the guard hairs are less...undercoat even thicker! Almost like a Q-tip!

I live AZ and owned by Akita who sheds a great deal twice a year. So..I have him both groomed and I also use a Furminator on him. The combination seems to work well for both of us

I have several no shedders- Brussels Griffons, Poodle Cross, Schnauzer but I have two heavy shedders not mentioned Australian Cattledogs! Our catahoula also sheds very little or not at all as did our Dobermans you do not mention.

Sounds about right! I'm glad I have a low shedder.
