Can you have a non-shedder that doesn't matt? Peri does not shed and has not started matting yet (at almost 8 months old). She is a mini. I comb her at least every other day. I hear all about non-shedders matting and the need for rigorous grooming, but was wondering if that just applies to later generations and not f1s? Any ideas? I also know that their coat can start to change around this time....does the matting occur over night. I know there are a lot of questions in here.... Thanks in advance :)
Update at almost 9 months: Okay - she is starting to shed like a maniac!!!! Is this normal? Clumps everywhere. I am brushing her at least every other day, but am finding balls of it in corners in my house. She has never shed before!
Update at 1 year: shedding MUCH less and matting only slightly - in the normal places, such as behind the ears, under the arms, etc...I can control it if I comb her 1x/week. A few months ago it was every other day. I think I am lucky with her coat. Barely sheds (I mean, she is almost non-shedding) and barely matts. I better knock on wood.
