Dog hair everywhere!!

Okay. Bella is 8 months old now and I still haven't figured out how to keep a handle on the dog hair. We only have carpet in the bedroom and all the vacuum does on hardwood is blow it around. I have a dust mop but maybe I just need a better one. I'd love to have a vacuum that's made for hard floors/dog hair.

Any suggestions? I feel like there's a layer on lab hair on everything. LOl

Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

We have the same problem here with 2 husky mix dogs and their hair is everywhere. I have use both a dyson and electrolux vacuums and they both work pretty well but I find that I have to use the wand under things like the couch and along the walls to get it all. I also have to do it everyday to be somewhat hair free and still I have hair in my house. I so miss carpet when it comes to dog hair because hair and wood floors are a pain in the butt.

Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

We have a roomba but mostly use it on the carpeted areas cause that's the biggest pain in the butt. On the hardwood I usually drag out the central vac or use one of those cheap microfibre towels on a swiffer-type mop.

Well that's good. She's a pup still do most of that could be bc of loosing her baby fur. She will still shed but it won't be as bad in a couple of months.

Re: Dog hair everywhere!!

you could try adding a fish oil supplement to her diet. the omega fatty acids are good for skin and coat, and do reduce shedding. other than that, a swiffer is my best friend on hardwood because the pads cling to that hair. if you're having issues with hair on furniture that isn't coming out with a vacuum, i have a rubber brush (mine is a horse one, actually, but anything rubber with little grippies on it will work). i scrub it in circles to pull all the hair up, then vacuum. any extra brushing you could manage would also help, obviously. i like to get the kids in on it 5 mins a day or even every other day would make a huge difference. i have to force myself to stay in a routine, because i can totally tell if i skip a few days.

Is this something specific for dogs? Or just a people supplement? Do you have a suggestion on a particular brand to look for? I've never had a dog before (DH has but never an inside dog) and I still feel totally clueless.
