Pomeranian Adult Shedding
When does the Pomeranian do its major shedding? This can vary depending on the climate of where you live and your Pom's environment.
The shedding process in dogs is triggered, in part, by changes in light. Adult Pomeranian shedding, if ruled by the changes in light, happens twice per year.
When days start to become shorter. This triggers the body to shed some fur as a thicker winter coat grows in.
When days start to become longer. This again sends a trigger to the dog's body to shed the slightly thicker winter coat that previously grew in.
This type of shedding will be noticeable for approximately 2 months, for each of the time periods.
Seasonal shedding will be more noticeable for those that also experience a change in temperature as well. Additionally, because Pomeranians are inside dogs and experience artificial lighting all year round, this can disrupt the natural shedding season. A Pom, therefore, may not enter a specific heavy shedding season and may instead shed lightly throughout the entire year.
