Do Labrador Retrievers shed a lot of their coat

Yes. It is rather surprising, isn't it, that such a shorthaired dog can shed so much! Well here is a surprise. These dogs actually have two coats. One is a soft undercoat and the other is a harder guard coat. These two coats help repel water when the dog swims. The outer coat keeps the dog warm.

Labs normally shed their coats twice a year. This process is called "Blowing." So at this time you will have a lot of hair on your hands! At other times of the year they shed moderate amounts of hair.
