You love your dog. His shedding, not so much. Fur is on your sofa, in your car, on your clothes - dog hair is everywhere! You clean to no avail. Every time you turn around, there's more hair. It's maddening! Fortunately, there are some things you can do about it besides shaving your fur baby. Below are three suggestions for how to clean dog fur in your home.

Groom Away Unwanted Hair

A simple, at-home grooming can put an end to excessive shedding almost immediately. Begin by taking your dog out into the yard on real grass. Brush and comb his coat thoroughly with a brush specifically designed to remove the undercoat and minimize dog shedding. After you've brushed your pooch, give him a quick bath using shed-free shampoo. You can follow up with another brushing, once your dog is dry, but you don't have to.

A Healthy Coat Means Less Shedding

Healthy coats don't shed that much. It's as simple as that. Keep your dog's coat healthy by feeding him high-quality food containing pure sources of protein. Always give him plenty of water. If you have to, entice him to drink by placing a few ice cubes in the bowl. You may also want to consider giving your dog a fatty acid supplement formulated for coat health.

Master Your Cleaning Technique

At the end of the day, you're probably going to have to clean up some hair. Therefore, you should master your cleaning technique. Clean regularly so that hair doesn't have a chance to get woven into fabrics. If you can't vacuum every day, use a lint roller or pet hair remover tool on all of your hair surfaces.  If your dog brings a mess inside whenever you let him outside, try Bark Potty, the potty solution that allows your dog to use the bathroom indoors. It's made of real bark and like real grass, contains the natural smells that compel dogs to "go." Order online or find it at a store near you. There is simply no reason to live with pet mess.
