Kaasuti My Charlie is shedding again. I clean up every day as i can't stand hair everywhere. I wish i had all laminate it would be so much easier than cleaning carpet!! .

Love him to bits though!

McCoy We got the dyson ball vacuum and its phenomenal (except on the shag rug, which is getting replaced).

For the hardwoods I got a Hoover Floormate. it works fine, but Ive come up with a better system. I run the vac over the hardwoods, then fill the sink with hot water and Murphys. I dunk 2 hand towels in the sink, plop them on the floor, and swish them around w/ my feet. Then use a dry towel in the same manner to dry. It sounds goofy but it works for cleaning the high traffic areas quickly.

I do this every other night.

The best advice I can give is the sooner you can forget your old cleaning routine, and adapt my system for 20 mins every other day, the better off you'll be.

......and dont get a shag rug

Thesilentone I brush my dogs often especially when they are shedding large amounts I have to do it daily even more than once a day sometimes(it can be better to brush them outside when they're shedding heavily). My boy definitely sheds more than my Lab does that's for sure! Just a lot of brushing, sweeping, mopping and vacuuming helps, and like some have already said vacuuming the dog fur off the dog can help too. You'll never be able to get every single strand of fur shed though living with dogs... that's impossible!

David Winners Good food and proper daily grooming cut it way back.

Blanketback If you can take your dog swimming, that's a great way to loosen a bunch of hair. And try to imagine those furry tumbleweeds everywhere as love letters, lol. You'll never have a completely hair-free home, so get used to it

Oisin's Aoire I switched to raw diet , and brush daily. There is still hair , but honestly it cuts it down by a good 70% .

volcano another thing i did with the force dryer- open all windows on a very windy day and blast the hardwood floors. I can mop and somehow the floor immediately has hair on is so I did this to get it ALL out.

Sabis mom Feeding a good diet cuts down on hair loss, other then that I vacuum daily, use a microfiber mop on the floors daily, and brush the dogs daily. No problem.

volcano I bought a very expensive master blaster force dryer and that has taken care of 90% of the hair and dust. I think alot has to do with she was about done shedding when I bought it- but the shedding was BAD.
