4 Must-Haves for Shedding Dogs

 

I love my dog, but who has time for this shedding!?!?!?!

I feel like it was all over the house, all of the time. Here are 4 things I have tried and used with success to keep this issue more manageable:) *Post contains affiliate links*

 

First, I try to prevent the excessive shedding! I saw these on Amazon, read the reviews, but was still hesitant that they would actually work. Well, they do. We are on our second bottle. The reviews make it sound like the dog will think they are treats. WRONG! Ours doesn’t. We have to put a little peanut butter on bread and then he eats them that way. Great Product! Honestly, the shedding is probably 75% less!

Another way to prevent the shedding is to use a good brush. Again, we probably bought more than 4 different types. A few work well, but this is my favorite!

The easiest thing to get the hair off the couch and our clothes are these rollers. I have tried many other things, but this is the cheapest option. They work the best, too.

I know this vacuum is crazy expensive, but let me tell you….it’s worth every penny. It cleans up the hair easily on the floor. It has all the right tools for couches and other areas. It is also VERY easy to clean out.

So glad our furry animals are so darn cute and lovable because they can be a lot of work! Hope this post helps you grab some products to make the mess a little more bearable.
