So i always groom the dog myself. Snubbing the expensive groomers and being so proud. Lol well my german Shepard's been shedding like crazy. Some of you know what i mean. Hair flying everywhere.
I have been brushing and vacuuming the dog 2 times a day everyday. Plus vacuuming the house everyday. Everyday. Avoiding the dog otherwise cuz the hair flys in my face. Yuck. I get out of the shower and hair is immediately covering my feet.. yuck. Hair on our clothes. Extra showers. Yuck yuck yuck.

Anyway i called petco and brought her up there. They did a deshedding treatment. Shampoo. Conditioner. Blow out. Brush. Nails and ears and brushing. Wow i can pet the dog again. I woke up to a house not covered in hair. I have several more hours over the next week to not clean up hair. I bought the shampoo and the furminator brush they used so i can do it at home next time. It really worked.

Yay, glad you are a happy camper.  Like Heather said sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and just do it.  You also should watch for their coupons.

I saw this metal thing at Academy sports store yesterday to remove the shedding hair. It looked kinda dangerous, lol, had never seen it before.

Furminators are the best!! We had a shiba inu who would lose handfuls of hair at a time. I could fill a grocery sack of her hair and still be brushinf. Lol i feel your pain. :)

Haha, I know what you're talking about. I saw it too, and it looks a bit intimidating. Glad I don't need to groom my dog, all he requires is a bath. I can't use frightening tools!

OP, my dog doesn't need grooming but I used to have a poodle/pekingese mix that did and I always spent the money to get it done, cause...well I was too much of a wuss to do it >_<
