Default Brushing indoors

How many of you brush indoors? How do you do it? I've seen attachments for vacuums, do they work? Which ones? I'd like to do it, but I'm always afraid of how much extra hair will be floating around. I already have to vacuum enough.

I sometimes brush Stosh in the kitchen. He's long-coated so I use an under coat rake then a slicker brush. I have him lay on an old sheet so I can shake it out. Surprisingly he doesn't shed that much

When I brush inside it is with slicker or undercoat rake and you can control the hair that way.

I always brush indoors. I don't have a grooming table, so I'm either sitting or kneeling on the floor, and there's no way I can do that outside on the pavers in our yard! I just use my trusty Dyson to pick up the remaining hair after I scrape up the bigger piles.

I have a slicker brush that I use occasionally, but I mostly use an undercoat rake.

I brush Lisl on the couch. I can get to her on both sides and her belly.
