Is it typical for dobermans to get dry skin during colder weather? I've just noticed that within the last few days our dobie is starting to get some flakes and his skin feels much dryer. The temperature has started to drop here but I'm not sure if that would affect him. He eats taste of the wild right now and has been on it a few months. I've also noticed that he is shedding more than I'm used to seeing from him and biting his paws (something our lab mix used to do till switching to a better food).
