Do english sheep dogs shed?
Covered in fluffy hair, you may assume these dogs shed heavily, but that is not the case.
Old English sheepdogs do not shed a seasonal coat.
However, because of their long, fluffy coats, they do require daily grooming to reduce the risk of matting and skin problems.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
