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.
