Unfortunately both breeds are very prone to hair loss and this is normal for both these breeds. Typically, although there is loss of large numbers of hair, the dogs will not show any sign of baldness. The best way to try and prevent this is with a good quality diet, additional omega three fatty acids (Marine oil capsules or flax seed oil) to the diet and regular daily brushing to remove loose hair.
