I have a 6 month old female and i try not to wear black or white. because she is very small for her age and thinks shes a lap dog. maybe its just my dog but i would say medium. She sheds alot more when you give her a bath.. its really not that bad tho. you know cuz all dogs shed. gsp's just shed more regularly. but its worth it!!
GSP will shed fairly constantly, but they have short hair. The problem is they have both brown/white or black/white hair so it can show up on just about any clothing. Using a grooming tool such as the ZoomGroom can significantly decrease hair that ends up on clothing, upholstery, etc.
My girl is 1 1/2 yrs and sheds..... a lot! She's white with brown spots. We have walnut floor and brown sofa. I sweep the floor and roll the sofa daily. I'm a clean freak. Even though my husband forgot to tell me about the shedding, I love her and don't mind it now. GSH are the best!
My GSP has low to medium shedding but twice a year she blows her coat and we are knee deep in hair for 2 weeks.
