    TIPS FOR KEEPING DOG SHEDDING UNDER CONTROL

    TIPS FOR KEEPING DOG SHEDDING UNDER CONTROL

    If you truly want to minimize the amount of pet hair that gets on your clothing, your best bet is to take simple steps to reduce the amount your pet sheds.

    • Give your pet a quick brushing every day (or at least a few times a week) to remove dead hair before it falls off – do this outside or in the garage, if you can.
    • For double-coated breeds, use an undercoat rake to remove fur before it can be shed – most double-coated breeds “blow” their coats once or twice a year so it is especially important to brush them during these periods.
    • Give your dog a high-quality pet food – the quality of your pet’s food will impact the health of his coat so feeding him a high-quality diet could help reduce shedding.
    • Sweep and vacuum your floors often to avoid a build-up of hair that results in tufts and balls of hair wafting around the room.
    • Bath your dog occasionally, especially during the summer – not only will this improve the health of your dog’s skin and coat, but it may also help to keep shedding under control.
    • Use the right tools when brushing or grooming your dog – there are different brushes for different types and lengths of hair so make sure you use the right tool for the job.

    Dealing with pet hair is just another part of being a pet owner… but when you’re covered in it, it doesn’t necessarily make a good impression on people at work or in social situations. Keeping on top of the problem is the best way to keep fur off of your clothes so you can always look your best.
