BTW.....Shedding is also hormonally controlled. Temperature has little to do with it for "coated" breeds. This is why people will notice their spayed/neutered dog shedding anytime. Some will "roll coat" instead of blowing it even.
I have one husky who has not blown coat in 4yrs...and he is intact! I had one, neutered, malamute who I could set the calendar by...Dec 2 every year I would notice him beginning to blow out his coat.
I always have dogs at all stages of "blowing" coat. It seems that the ones I show will always lose coat right before the biggest show of the year. If I decided to do the big summer shows, or the big winter shows....they are always blowing coat!
