We had a Sheltie growing up and when he started shedding each year, we washed him in WARM water, then towel dried, and finally used a shedding brush to get the majority off at one time. This saved us from finding long clumps of salt and pepper hair on the rugs.

Ugh. Virgil’s starting his summer shed, too. I wash him every 3 days or so and brush him well afterward.

He’s a short coat dog, but the mostly white thing doesn’t go well with black scrubs!

ETA: I seriously strip off and get in the shower with him. It’s lots easier this way and I don’t get water all over the bathroom.

Try the Furminator! I haven’t personally used it but a number of coworkers have and they all swear by it! Now would be a great time to try it too, with the warm weather all the dogs  are shedding their winter coats. 🙂
