Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

You can use the people fish oil supplement if she doesnt have a problem with pills. One a day, then 2 as she gets bigger (weight gain, probably over 50 lbs. Is the transition). if shes picky, or if you dont want the hassle of pills, there is a pump liquid formula that goes on food. You could add the recommended dose each day, morning or night. If you look on amazon or something under fish oil or salmon oil supplement for dogs, you should find it. Im going to go look for a bunch of links to show you hang in there! Once you get the routine down, its a breeze.

Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

The rubber brush I was telling you about, good on the couch and the dog: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

And the pump fish oil supplement:

If youre giving her baths at home, use this too- works awesome! But you need to use the conditioner too, thats where the treatment is.

I'm not sure what the brush is called. It almost looks like an oversized razor. lol. Not good at explaining.

I'll check those links out. Thanks!

I love the zoom groom for my 2. They are a pit mix and a greyhound Shepard mix and it gets so much hair off of them. Whenever I take the kids out back I try to take a few minutes and groom the dogs and I find it cuts back a lot on the hair in the house.

Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

Buy a Furminator, Amazon has the best prices. We raise first generation Goldendoodles so while the puppies themselves don't shed, the momma dog, the Golden Retriever does. Not only do they shed pretty bad on a normal basis, but after they have their puppies, they "blow coat," same as after a woman has a baby and looses lots of her hair (I'm going through that myself right now and it's terrible!)

We have found great relief with the furminator on our Golden Retrievers. It works like nothing else I've ever used to pull all the loose fur out so it doesn't fall out all over the house. That paired with an excellent raw food diet like Primal, (or make your own if you're on a budget, it's so much cheaper,) and you'll notice a huge improvement in her shedding.

Sounds like a shedding blade? Those do a very good job at getting the loose overcoat, I might get something to get underneath the hair too.

We use a people fish oil supplement, it comes in gelcaps which I like cause it's not messy. Most dogs love it and if you feed kibble you can just toss it into the bowl. The first time I gave it to my dogs I had to prick the capsule with a pin and squeeze a bit of the oil out so they could taste and smell it. After that they have just taken it straight from my hand and eaten it, they remind me if I forget to give it to them.

When shopping for fish oil don't look at just the mg in each capsule but look at the amount of EPA and DHA (those are the good omegas that it gives you). Sometimes the cheap varieties have much less of them so you end up giving more pills (which is a pain) and sometimes even paying more in the end cause you go through the package so much faster.

Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

Could be a shedding blade. Or a furminator, the brush part on those kinda look like giant razor to me lol. As long as you are getting hair out when you're brushing, thats good. Maybe try the zoom groom and then your brush, to maximize brushing power. Haha Glad I could help! Good luck on cutting out the layer of lab hair

I like the rubber brush idea! We vacuum a lot around my house. More carpet than not, but I find it in piles on the wood in the kitchen/dining area. Daily brushing is a great idea also. We were lazy with that activity! LOL!

Another vote for fish oil an a furminator. I also have tried the Dyson grooming vacuum tool attachment. You can use it with any vacuum cleaner, not just Dyson.

When our sweet Bernese mountain dog passed away last year, I determined not to get another heavy shedding dog. We have a standard poodle now and she sheds less than I do!!!
