If you have a dog, do you find tumbleweed sized balls of dog hair wafting through your home...

No matter how often you sweep?
Is it normal for a golden retriever/lab mix to loose lots of hair?

    I hate when pet hair gets all balled up in the corners of every room.

  • no, but my dog has really short hair, goldens do shed alot that's why, even though they are so cute, i'll never own one lol

  • My dog is a lab chow mix. His hair leans more toward the chow, long puffy hair...and black of course. So yes, I am constantly having to vacuum and sweep, in fact I need to get off of here and do that right now!!

  • LOL!!! no, no tumble hair balls.. but that's only because we vacuum daily and sweep twice a day (after lunch and after dinner) along with brushing twice daily (in the morning and in the evening). We have two huskies.. LOL.. so we have LOTS of shedding.

  • Yes, ours is a chocolate lab so we have brown hair everywhere... Brushing every morning certainly helps A LOT....

  • Yeah tumble weeds of pug dog hair. If I brush my pug it is less. I do this out side and use a curry comb.
