Does anyone have problems with their papillon when they shed? Mine gets extremely itchy. It is always twice a year we go through this terrible few weeks to a month of itching and ripping out hair.

Kit has allergies but they don't change at all when he sheds. He has food and environmental allergies, but we went through a lot of trouble to find out what exactly he's allergic too so we can reduce his contact to those things.

Maybe shedding is just making them uncomfortable? Kit has never really shed that much. A little bit here and there, but he's almost 2 and he's never had a big shed all at once. I brush him once a day and that's usually enough to keep him from getting fur all over everything.
