|m1953||I vacuum and brush every day. Shedding is not too much of an issue. But I guess that's why they are called German shredders|

I have a cat that puts my GSD's shedding to shame. I have no idea how she's not bald yet.
...Of course, she's white, so that shows on everything.

...We had to get on a ladder and scrub hair off of the top of the 12ft walls and ceiling every day.
This is not a neat, tidy tool.

|Kyleigh||OMG ... I just had a mental image of doing this in my house ... even tho Ky barely sheds, I certainly would NOT want that fur all over the place!|

YES! You take the dog outside to use a force dryer. This is not an indoor tool.

|Fynn&Vandy||When I first got my gsd, I was going freaking crazy over the shedding especially during the summer. I brushed him every morning and, every night. I was vacuuming constantly. I noticed that the healthier he got, the less he shed. (He was in bad shape when I got him!) I talked to K9 unit officers, military dog handlers, vets ANYONE that could help and, I heard the same responses over and over. It could be allergies. If they are allergic to something in their food, they will shed like crazy. I was also told that a nice steak once a week would do wonders. I now have two shepherds and, they are eating good food and, sure enough get a weekly steak. The shedding issue is a quarter of what it was when I just first got Fynn. Good luck!|
