If you are the proud owner of your very own hair producing machine, better known as Lassie, your clothes and just about every area of your home are subject to sharing in the bounty of shed hair. Getting rid of this bounty starts with getting the loose hair out of Lassie and then working on getting rid of it from your home. All dogs shed almost constantly, even those with short coats. But most of us only notice the problem when we have a dog with a long coat as these breeds tend to shed more noticeably. Being able to give your dog a proper wash in order to eliminate the amount of shedding that happens in your home is a handy grooming routine. It should be part of a weekly grooming session to keep Lassie happy and healthy.
Lassie is barely aware of the fact that she leaves a coating of her hair wherever she goes. Even if she does realize she is shedding, chances are pretty good she really doesn't care. To reduce the amount of hair she does shed, a good bath and brushing will go a long way. She may not appreciate bath time, but it can definitely help to keep her coat looking great.
Washing the loose hair out of your dog's coat can be challenging, but the more frequently you keep them brushed, especially during shedding season, the less buildup will occur in her coat. Along with this, keeping her coat nice and clean will help cut down on the amount of hair all over your home. With proper maintenance, the stress of shedding season should be much more easy to maintain.
