When I was showing Puggies a quick wipe over with the cloth before they went into the ring was about all you needed to do at a show. No loose hairs even if they were moulting and a lovely shine on their black coats.
    Hi Deer
    Could you please tell me more about the eucalyptus solution; strength/ratio etc. They don't mind the smell?
    Thank you

    Great thread. I have gathered some ideas to use on Troopa.
    We have white tiles and every second day it is covered in black fur. I also took him to the vet on Thursday for microchipping and was stupid enough to wear a white top, needless to say, it was no longer white after the vet visit.

    i brush chloe minimum of 2 times a week, probably more like 4 times to be honest!!

    She sheds and sheds soo much, but we have hardfloors so i just sweep 3 times a day (but i have a child!) and i vacuum once to twice a week and that keeps it up..

    I use just a regular brush, the 2 sided kind and it does the trick, to be honest I'd be a bit nervous to use anything else as i have no real idea of what i'm doing..

    I might have to go and annoy GSD4ever for some more info
