Rottweilers, like other double-coated dog breeds, experience biannual shedding but may also exhibit some degree of shedding throughout the year. The year-round hair loss is typically moderate, with an increase in shedding during the seasonal "coat-blowing" periods. 

Unlike breeds such as Golden Retrievers or Huskies, Rottweilers are considered moderate shedders, leaving less loose hair around.  

The Rottweiler's shedding process primarily revolves around the regulation of its body temperature during shifts in the seasons. This is why heavy shedding occurs during spring and fall, as they adapt to temperature and environmental changes, ensuring their comfort and well-being.
