Do Boxers Shed?

Boxers are considered moderate shedders, according to AllBoxerInfo. Boxers may also shed more during certain times of the year. However, regular weekly brushing and monthly bathing can help minimize shedding.

There are a number of reasons why boxers shed more during certain periods. For example, boxers shed heavily as they transition from a puppy coat to an adult coat. Boxers that are not spayed may shed excessively before the end of a heat cycle. The best way to groom a boxer is by brushing the dog with a bristle brush or mitt brush. Brushing down into the skin helps to loosen and remove any dead hair. Typically, it is best to give boxers a bath every four weeks to help remove dead hair and dirt.
