    They do and they dont. The fuzzy ones do (have longer fur) but the smooth dont as bad. THey do shed quite a bith though. Much like a boxer.

    I agree, diet has a LOT to do with shedding!!! I have dogs that come into the store and I can tell their being fed crap before their owners say anything to me, because their coats are in such bad shape and they're shedding like MAD. Whereas the dogs I know who are fed a high quality diet shed far less than their counterparts of the same breed who are fed low quality food.

    I'd love to do a "furminator test" on two labs or other high shed dogs, on different quality diets, and have photographic evidence of the dramatic difference that I'm sure we'd see :)
