HI, I am new to the website and I am looking for some advice regarding the shedding of my 5 year old yellow lab. It's really really a lot of hair....everywhere. I just don't know what to do any more, it's becoming a problem for the household. I've tried brushing everyday, oil in her food . . that does not work. Any advice ?? :-[
Part of the price of owning a lab. I have since decorated in sheds I mean shades of my Clancey boy. Go look over in lab chat where people will discuss the merits of zoom and groom, different combs etc...
It drives me crazy, too. I find it everywhere -- in the fridge, the microwave, my shoes, my food : My new years resolution was to brush her daily ... but I can't tell it makes any difference. She's a shedding beast ~ but I'm so crazy about her so I'll put up with it all.
I don't know how true this is but my trainer told us to not over brush our boy (1x/week max). I don't know if I am lucky or this advice really works but we have very little shedding(usually in the spring).
We bought a shedding blade for Milly. She's only 9 weeks old but we used it on her lightly the other day and it made a great difference to how she felt and the hair that came off her little body was amazing!!
