Yes, Basenjis do shed, but since their hair is so short, you will barely notice their shedding.
Some Basenjis shed more than others, but it is very hard to tell because what you see on the floor and in your house is just a little bit of their hair that falls off. It’s almost like the dog doesn’t even shed at all, but it does.
Basenjis can shed throughout most of the year, but they usually shed less during the colder months. They can’t really adjust their shedding due to weather changes or temperature like people do.
The best way to describe Basenjis shedding is that it’s almost like hair loss; the dog loses hair in patches and it looks very noticeable.
The areas that are most likely to be affected are the back and the shoulders, but it could happen anywhere on their body. Usually, there is not a pattern to where they lose hair.
Even though it is very hard to find a trace of your basenji shedding around your home, there tends to be a lot of hair found in his bed.
This is because he probably sheds more while he’s sleeping at night.
Basenjis are medium shedders, so they are similar to other breeds in this manner. If your dog sheds very much, you can brush them often, so they lose their hair instead of it falling off by themselves all over the place.
This is something that may help fix the problem.
Since all dogs are different and they may react differently to their shedding, it is very important to keep an eye on your basenji and help them out if you notice any unusual changes.
If there is a problem with how your dog sheds, you should talk to your vet about the best course of action that you can take for your pet.
As a side note, it is very important not to shave or cut your basenji’s hair since it will just grow back thicker and you will probably notice more shedding.
If the dog’s hair has fallen out in certain areas because of a medical condition, then it should be shaved off by a professional vet.
Shaving can also be done in the summertime if the dog is sweltering because of his coat.
The most important thing to consider when talking about a basenji’s shedding is that it may not happen at all, or very little.
It varies from dog to dog and from breed to breed, so you will have to keep an eye on your dog to make sure there is nothing abnormal about how it sheds.
How to stop basenjis from shedding at all?
It is not possible to stop your basenji from shedding at all.
Every breed of dog sheds some amount, and some breeds shed more than others, but it is impossible to stop them from losing some hair every now and then.
If you want a dog that does not shed, you should probably go with a poodle (if they are de-shredded) or a Maltese.
Since Basenjis only lose some of their hair and it is not like normal shedding, you can brush them more often to help keep their fur smooth and healthy.
