I carry a lint roller with me at home, in my purse, and in my drawer at work

We have a Siberian Husky and he sheds like none other! FI vacuums about every 2 days, we dust often, but there is just no getting around it. I also carry a lint roller with me everywhere! It really bothered me at first (FI’s dog), but it is good that he is such a great dog….furry and all! I kind of want a mini husky now too! πŸ™‚

When I first started trying to brush my cat, you would have thought I was attempting to light her on fire – she hated it! Now, she’ll just collapse like some sort of lump and let me brush her forever; she actually acts all irritated when I stop. I’ve also found the Furminator to be invaluable. I end up generating a cat-sized mound of fur by the time I’m finished brushing her.

My aussie/heeler mix sheds more than any dog I know.  You just pet him and you get a hand full of fur…  I notice that when I furminate him and use the de-shedding waterless shampoo once a week he sheds less around the house… Other than that I vacuum and sweep twice a week and avoid wearing black outside of the house.  I also vacuum the entire couch once a week, like all sides of cushions and pillows in the crevices etc.  Our couch is a PITA to get the hair out of though, our next couch will be a light colored canvas or some other non-textured fabric to help with that.

It drives my FI crazy… But how can you get mad at this face??

ETA:  I highly suggest investing in a furminator http://www.furminator.com/

We have a Furminator too, I’m just SO lazy, apparently it’s easier to vacuum haha! πŸ˜›

I really want an extra strength regular vacuum. The one I put the link up to really does work well though, it’s the only thing I use on our stairs! Lucy’s hair clumps up in the corners of the stairs..ick.

We brush the dog when we can, and give her lots of baths (the vet said it would help!). I also vacuum several times a week to keep the hair from getting way out of control.

I had a cat that hated to be brushed…we were told to put a sock over his head by a groomer friend of ours… We thought it would be mean, but It worked!

I use the furminator outside on the porch.  It removes tons of hair which helps.  And we also use a roomba everday inbetween weekly cleanings.  His hair gets everywhere! Even in rooms he is not in.  But I love my lab.

@KansasPrincess11: you know you have shedding issues when you spend 15 minutes staring a the Dyson for Animals vacuum in Target wishing somehow you could afford a $600 vacuum…  Yup.  I did that.

Anyone have any suggestions on what the best vacuum is for picking up pet hair?  (Slightly off topic.. but kind of useful in this thread…)
