Yes, mini Aussies shed a lot. Mini Aussies, or miniature Australian shepherds, have a double layer of fur, so they shed moderately during the year and intensely in the late fall or early winter.
The mini Aussie sheds because it has a double coat, which means that it has long hair on top and thicker hair underneath. The underlayer of fur sheds as the weather gets colder, allowing for a thicker coat to grow in and protect the mini Aussie during the winter.
You can prevent excess shedding with a weekly brushing routine and a monthly grooming schedule.
Mini Aussies are still good indoor dogs because they interact well with other dogs and young children, but this breed’s grooming needs can be overwhelming for people looking for a low-maintenance dog or for people with allergies.
