Do Pit Bulls Shed?

Pit bulls are moderate shedders, although they have short coats and need to be brushed regularly as a result. Pit bull owners should also consider vacuuming their homes periodically if their pit bulls stay inside. The shedding is typically seasonal, and late fall and early summer is generally when the shedding will be at its worst.

To prevent excessive shedding, professionals recommend making sure that the pit bulls are hydrated at all times, brushed daily and provided with a healthy diet filled with good amino acids and proteins. Temporal changes and fluctuations, as well as anxiety and stress, can also result in excessive shedding.
