Three powerful male dogs isn't something I would personally take on, particularly if one is a cane corso (same sex aggression is pretty common).

But it's your decision! I'd keep it simple for now and enjoy the journey.

I am unclear on this. Put it over the dog, or over me?

I cleaned like 2 days ago, and it's already an overwhelming mess again.
You have entirely the wrong attitude and are doomed to failure. Don't ask me how I know. Your best approach is to start a side business of dog hair woven rugs, sweaters, and baby blankets. It is the only reasonable means of dealing with a GSD. Hire a cheap labor crew to brush the dog 24/7. You won't run out of hair. People love the baby blankets. If you decide to open a factory, get a second GSD.

Drape it over everything you don't want dog hair on.

I have heard dog blowers work well to get all the loose extra hair out and cuts down on all the hair everywhere. I have been wanting to get one they can be pricey.
