Fur Fur Fur Everywhere !

My basset use to shed like crazy, but things are improving. First, good quality dog kibble is key. I tried the de-shedding shampoo which I thought worked very well. Brushing daily also cuts down on the hair in the house.

I just had to respond to you, because my BH loves to be vacuumed .would you believe I actually vacuum my dog !! He absolutely loves it too. I have a Dyson Canister Style, and he loves it. When I empty the canister...wow there's enough dog hair in that to make another dog !!

My dog is primarily white too....so I buy beige area rugs ( oh and I never buy black clothing)...hehehe:D

.....would carpet be ok if I vacuum it every weekend? If Porter keep on shedding on the couch and can't stay off it, I might just have to crate him.
Every weekend? Boy, our carpets get vacuumed EVERY DAY to keep ahead of the fur. I much prefer carpetting however, other than in kitchen and bathroom/cloakroom. Our now two only are confined to the kitchen (where there is a rug) when we have to go out without them. I'd never crate either during the daytime now. They do sleep in their crates however - this is one Basset and one Whippet btw. Right now, Frankie Basset is shedding - does he think this never-ending cold and rain in the UK is going to turn into a major heatwave?

He has never offered to get up on either chair or sofa for some reason. He is a one-off in that because was a time when we'd be sitting on the floor with our lot on the sofa, love-seat and chair. We use covers and they are fabric not leather. He may not want to risk getting up on furniture because of his Whippet buddie, who does - I somehow doubt he was ever trained not to get on furniture even if he was 4+ months when he came to us. Suits me.

"oh and I never buy black clothing)" Isn't it Sods Law that Realty Agents ALWAYS seem to wear black or dark blue. We have to rent and I have to make sure the rugs are thoroughly vacuumed immediately prior to a scheduled inspection. And get the dogs out for 30 minutes or so before her expected visit!! How often have I seen visitors wearing dark clothing get up with fur on their backs - and wondered whether to brush it off, or ignore!!!

On my opinion the most easy method on dealing pet hair are vacuuming and brushing pets regularly. Another common recommendation was tape rollers, using a roller on their furniture or clothes.
