Lol! I JUST washed my dog’s beds 🙂 He’s an 80lb lab/ridgeback mix and he sheds a lot. Here’s my trick…

Before anything can go in the washer that has any dog hair or lint or anything that can clog drains (because it will after awhile and that’s and expensive, time consuming mess!), I shake it out outside. I spend a good ten minutes shaking the dog’s bed like it’s a towel or floor rug, you know what I mean? I do it from all sides to make sure it all comes off.  Oh, and just make sure you close the door or walk away from the house before you do it, so it doesn’t blow back into the house!

One other option: gather up about five dollars in quarters and go to the laundry mat and use the super-duper industrial front load washer. Those things are so powerful that not much hair gets left behind.

Could you tumble it in the dryer first to get all the excess hair off and into the lint trap? I think the laundromat route is a great idea too!
