• In breeds with long or curly hair such as the Yorkshire Terrier, Maltese Bichon, Poodle, Shih Tzu ... 90 percent of the hair remains in the anagen phase, so it is growing longer than it falls. This will mean that hair loss during the year will be low, but they will need a regular haircut. This also happens to humans 
  • On the other hand, short-haired dogs and cats have the telogen phase as dominant, so the hair loss will be constant, since the anagen growth period is very short in time and they will constantly change their hair. For this reason, contrary to what is usually thought, hair loss is much greater in short-haired breeds such as the Chihuahua, the pinscher or the American Staffordshire terrier than in the long-haired ones.
  • There are certain breeds with wire hair such as the West Highland White Terrier (Westy), the Schnauzer or the Jack Russell in which the catagen stage in their cycle prioritizes, so it is advisable to pull this hair out in specialized hairdressing centers with the technique called Stripping , since they will not be able to remove that "dead" hair naturally.
  • In addition to the natural cycle of hair growth, there are times of the year such as spring and autumn, when in some breeds the telogen phase becomes even more dominant and is commonly known as shedding. This happens in double-coated dogs such as the Pomeranian or the German shepherd among others. These dogs have two layers of hair, the primary or covering and the secondary or undercoat that is in charge of giving the dog insulation to keep it warm in winter and cool in summer. In these breeds, it is essential to do a "grooming" by the owner or by professionals in dog salons to help the dog maintain a healthy and beautiful coat.
