Keep brushing. It does go on forever and twice a year it is horrendous when they completely blow coat. The rest of the year they can shed enough to build a small dog once a week. Get a good vacuum, you will need it. I still brush my girl every morning and she is 6 years old. When I bathe her I use the Zoom Groom rubber brush to get loose hair and it also gives her a nice massage. I used the Furminator on Pyrate and could get a 3 and a half gallon bucket full of hair easily at least three times a week and he never looked like he lost any hair at all! Raina, being of longer coat, oddly enough does not shed as much as Pyrate did. She has longer hair but not the thick fuzzy undercoat so much.
