Maybe they are shedding because of the season change. How often do you brush them, maybe brush them more often. Also if it becomes a problem there is a deshedding tool on the market called the furbuster, it's like $30-$40, but walmart carriers a cheaper version that is about $20, so maybe try that later on if the brushing does not help.

It's that time of year again. Wash them with warm water and tearless puppy shampoo, to knock off all the old hair. It is about 5.00 or so.

For under 10.00 you can buy a bottle of PURE salmon oil... Place 1 teaspoon 2 x per day in the food / mix...
MOST chi dogs would need 1 teaspoon per day but you can try 2 - It will help to reduce the shedding and get rid of the Dry coat.
PURE salmon oil is found at most pet stores or on-line.
