If you’ve had a dog that sheds a lot, you know how difficult a problem this can be to control—and you also know how much it can drive you crazy. That’s because dog hair can get everywhere and on every surface, coating furniture and clothing.
But you love your dog, too—so what can you do? Turns out, there are lots of ways for your dog to be happy and well-kempt and for you to better manage shedding. First: Unless you have a particular non-shedding dog, know that getting rid of hair isn’t anything a dog is doing to irritate you. It’s a natural biological process that helps them maintain skin and hair health.
What you can do is help your dog have a healthy lifestyle and routine. That includes grooming—baths and brushing—as well as good-for-them food. Want to find more tips? This graphic can help.
