I live in Phoenix and have to dust once a week.  I have 2 cats as well which I think makes it worse with the dander and cat litter.  I think having that much dust is abnormal but then again you are in an older home and have lots of dirt near by.  Hopefully your new house will be better.

The majority of dust is actually skin cells and usually not actually dirt. Its possible bathing your dogs so much is actually making the problem worse, not better, by giving them dry skin. 

My dog has dry skin. We used to give him egg yolks (raw) but our vet recommended fish oil tablets. Seems to help a lot, and it oddly enough really cut down on our dust issue

I don’t live in the desert and my floors are always covered in dust and hair…even after I sweep, vacuum, and wet jet! I think you notice it so much bc you have pergo floors. I see EVERYTHING bc I have dark vinyl wood plank.

I live in Phoenix and the dust is bad in our house too the poor poodle gets covered in it even with short hair. Dirt roads make it so much worse. My firends grandmother lived up in carefree and the dirt road caused so much blowing dust and dirt to come in to the house through all the cracks. I definitely think it will get beter when you move!
