True story! Their bodies know when the season is changing, and it is at this time when they go through what is called a blow out.
What is a blow out?
Siberian Huskies have a thick double coat. The undercoat is soft, warm and fluffy, while the top coat is more coarse - useful for keeping the rain and snow from soaking to their skin, protects them from getting a sun burn, and probably the coolest and most unique part about husky - their double coat works as a cooling system in the summer as well as keeping them warm in the winter.
In the Siberian Husky language, the term "Blow out" refers to twice a year when a sibe sheds out their entire undercoat. This may sound funny, but the reason they do this is because new fur is growing due to the changing season (usually spring and fall) so they are basically making room for the fresh fur!
As you can see, in the above photo, my huskies are letting me know that spring is definitely nearing.
During a blow out, a Siberian Husky's fur will literally fall out in clumps.
Grooming a husky is always super important as their coats tend to be high maintenance - however during a blow out, you have to pay extra attention, and groom daily, not only to help save your house from turning into a old western movie (fur filled tumbleweeds blowing across the floor) but to help your dog get that undercoat out for their new fur to grow.
There are several different grooming tools you can use -
The main tools I use in my grooming arsenal include the Furminator, and a Shedding blade.
I have seen so many husky owners saying "help, my husky is shedding everywhere, what can I do?"
- Learn to live with it!
- Tell people the husky fur all over your clothes a fashion statement
- stop wearing black
- bring a change of clothes with you everywhere
- Never leave home without a lint brush
- and lots of vacuuming!!
