OK here RV community, this is the most resourceful bunch of people I have ever come across. I need to do something about the dog hair. I swear I have no idea how this dog even has any hair but it just keeps coming. Has anyone ever found any way to control shedding? I bet I could stuff a small pillow every month when I clean around his cage that he very rarely even goes into anymore. I have never seen so much dog hair in all my life.

Dog hair is a condiment around our house [emoticon]

Seriously, shedding is normal to a degree in most breeds. What breed of dog do you have and how old? What diet? Any patchy areas of hair loss? Any itching or scratching? Are your grooming and bathing him/her regularly, if so what do you use?

Once you have eliminated disease or medical conditions, dietary changes or supplements may be beneficial.

You are going to get a lot of personal experience advice and suggestions here, many probably will help. I'd suggest the next time you have a vet appointment, bring up the issue and get some suggestions.

Do those Dog Grooming/Deshedding Gloves work?
I think my Chihuahua turns into an Irish Wolfhound at night.

If all you can stuff is a small pillow in a month you don't have a problem. The Collies could do that in a week. I just vacuum once a week. Furniture I always purchase real leather that dog hair doesn't stick to. I consider it a small price to pay for the companionship.

Come visit our house then you won’t feel so bad. Please don’t look in the corners of the mud room until after the daily vacuuming is done.

Have you tried any of the de-shedding tools? We use a Furminator and with regular brushing it removes enough fur that the shedding is decreased dramatically.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

+1 for the FURMINATOR! Brushing Molly each morning has virtually eliminated the fine hairs piling up in the corners of our home.

I'm another vote for the Furminator. My Cattle Dog shed copious amounts of fur 365 days/yr. Regular combing with the Furminator comb helped immensely (and I would put the balls of removed fur in our pine tree - every baby bird in the neighborhood had a nice fur-lined nest....LOL!)

The furminator also does a good job removing dried mud (and “organic” fertilizer[emoticon]) from our dogs’ fur reducing the dust levels in the house.

Sign of a happy family.
You can brush them, use a roller on your clothes and vacuum a lot.
At some point you just have to accept some dog hair.
I do not apologize for it.
