Unless you buy a hairless animal, you really can't stop them from shedding. However, you can minimize the amount of hair they leave behind. Brushing your pet on a regular basis, say, every one to two weeks, you will reduce the time it takes to clean up after them. We are obsessed with the FURminator, a brush designed to remove pets' undercoat.
Cut your dog's hair in the spring and fall. These are the seasons they shed the most to make way for new coats. Cutting your dog's hair at these times will cut down on the amount of hair they leave behind.
It's probably the most common product used to relieve your clothes of pet hair -- and for a good reason -- it's easy. The rollers come compact enough so you can put them in your purse or car for all the hair you missed on your way out of the house.Try a lint roller
Lint rollers also come extra wide with long handles for easy use on your furniture. This can be much easier and quicker than using your vacuum.
Certain vacuums are better at picking up animal hair than others. It seems some vacuums get clogged by all the hair, but if you get one with heavy-duty suction and a brush roll, you'll have better luck. Dyson has several models that do the trick.
Rubber gloves are an excellent way to rid your clothes and furniture of pet hair. Just put them on and wipe your hand over the furry area. You'll be amazed at how much hair you pick up.
Many times you wash your clothes or blankets in the wash, only to find they still have hair on them. Next time you go shopping, look for detergent that is specially designed to eliminate pet hair, like Le Chien et Le Chat. If that still doesn't work, use fabric-softener sheets to pick up the excess hair you missed.
Pay close attention to what you feed your pet. Provide them with a diet of protein, vitamins and Omega-Fatty Acids to promote not only healthy weight, but also reduced shedding. Of course, you should always check with your vet when deciding on any diet changes.
