Shepherds are horrid shedders and do a ton of shedding, all year around. As long as your dog isn't losing excessive amounts of hair, I wouldn't stress myself or worry.

he is probably in the house too much, not a problem if you dont mind the hair, brush him frequently. it may not be a full moult so it will ease as the heating is reduced.

The most active shedding will be spring but if he lives indoor his body clock will be off because he has to regulate himself. It's warm in the house therefore he won't need a thick coat. If he lives outside he is shedding to get a thicker coat. I know that wouldn't seem to make sense but it does :)

There is nothing you can do. Brush often, feed a high quality kibble, and avoid over bathing - this should help with the shedding/molting.

dogs shed all year round, regardless of how cold it is.

My dog was outside pretty my all the time and he grew a big thick winter coat but now he hangout in the house more and even tho he sheds year round he's been shedding A LOT more. Aslong as the hair doesn't get so skimpy that you can see he skin and my and make sure it's healthy and not dull so give him those omega fatty acids! I wouldn't worry!
