Husky (Huskies)/My 3 yr old husky won't shed

I can hardly believe I'm reading this.  My 2 1/2 year old husky male is not shedding either. He shed last summer just fine and our female is completely done. I will tell you that I brought him to the vet thinking that maybe there's an underlying health problem, but he says he looks perfectly healthy. He suggested the Furminator to encourage that undercoat to loosen up.

Hello...I have the same Siberian Husky is 4 and has never fully blown his winter coat. I have took him to Pet Smart and had the furminater that helped some, but not entirely, my dog is MISERABLE in the summer and is a completely outside dog, but I bring him in on really hot days and he lays over the air vents in my house, I wish I could do something to help him more. And I was told NOT to cut his hair.

Questions about the general breed and temperament of Siberian Huskies. Also, I have had great experience in training them to be, well, a little less crazy. Nothing is a substitute for good research and training, but Husky owners are a special breed, and I can help in passing along some of that information. I do not breed my dogs, they are just companion animals. I encourage that breeding be left to professionals and members of the SHCA. The SHCA can provide great information in helping fellow breeders and I am unable to answer all but the most basic of questions regarding breeding.


Own two pure-bred Siberian Huskies (Karnovanda). Casual owner, but a love and understanding of the breed can be helpful in getting to the right resources.
