Mine aren't allowed upstairs nor the front dining room which limits the areas I have to keep up with. IT's so worth it!

I find the mud/dirt/water much worse than the hair. I have central vac & it's a breeze, but my dark hardwood floor shows every drip mark that trails down the hallway after he drinks his water and every dirty or wet paw print. One day and it looks as if I haven't washed my floor in a year! And my living room throw rug, well let's just say we plan on buying a new inexpensive one once a year.

I can testify as to the amount of hair that accumulates in a week. Last Tuesday I had shoulder surgery and today was the first day I was really up and about. Hubby did not vacuum as he didn't want to disturb me. There are hairballs everywhere, the edges of each wall, clumps under the furniture, mounds under the radiator, etc. I'm afraid to go upstairs. This is from two regularly groomed GSDs. The experiment ends tomorrow as I'm breaking out the shop vac. I knew that GSDs shed, but never this amount.

Furminator is a wonder brush. Just be prepared to be covered in hair as the loosened undercoat clings to everything.

I have an attachment for my vacuum that brushes and sucks up the hair all at once. Took a few times to get them used to it but it works really well.

Of course I also furminate frequently and vacuum alot.

One way of dealing was getting rid of all the carpets and getting hardwood floors.

My advice is use all the products listed by everyone and then ignore the furbunnies that still exist in every home that houses a shedder.
