May/June Memorandum from the Founder

Summerwood Farm NC, LLC

May and June are the two months that your German shepherd will be shedding a lot since they are losing their winter coat. It is advisable to brush your dog using a deshedding tool.

The tool that I have found that works the best to remove the excess coat (fur) is the FURminator:

FURminator Long Hair deShedding Edge For Dogs, Large


FURminator deShedding Tool for Large Dog 51-90 lbs with Long Hair - Pets Watch

This is the same tool we use on all of our puppies & dogs at all of our Breeding locations.

Whether your puppy/dog is stock, plush or long coat this is the preferred deshedding tool by owners and professional groomers.

During this period we recommend brushing your puppy/dog every day. We suggest brushing your puppy/dog at least once a week during this period. Grooming your puppy/dog is also a great time to bond.

I brush Waran at least four times a day during the shedding period. This me me a chance to talk to Waran and praise him for being such a good boy.

Your puppy/dog will thank you.
