Do Red Heelers Shed a lot?

No, red heelers do not shed a lot. Their short thick coat doesn’t require much grooming other than an occasional brushing to keep it dust and odor-free. If your red heeler gets muddy, a quick wipe down with a damp cloth is usually enough to get it clean again.

 Although red heelers only shed moderately most of the year, they may ‘blow’ their coats in spring and fall. At these times, daily brushing and warm water baths prevent shedding from becoming a big problem.
