They both shed and need a lot of grooming. The long haired needs even more grooming than the short haired.

If coat is your deciding factor, then I do not recommend any GSD. All shepherds shed & require grooming.
Please do way more research on temperament, training, & the whole breed.
This is not a breed for novices. They require a firm, consistent, positive leader. They also need daily training, are very slow to mature, will test you every chance they get.
Many folks gloss over these warnings & are totally unprepared for this level of dog. Shelters get tons of adolescent gsds who's owners did not know what they were getting into.
They NEED a job...or they will find one..like chewing up your entire sofa in under an hour.
A longer coat will, of course, require more grooming to stay matt free & they will take longer to dry off.
