    LOL@laura - try having to clean up after 9 dogs! Furminator is on my list of things to buy, you can get them off ebay for about $20 which I think I'll be able to get after my easter boarders have gone.

    Get yourself a rubber broom (mine's a Decor from the supermarket), they are amazing! I have floorboards, but they work on carpet too. Best thing is the hair doesn't get caught in the broom head like it does with conventional brooms, and it can be washed. I tried it on a rug and the hair just kind of comes off in a "roll".

    lol I know the feeling. I had two or more tibbies living inside at any given time not to long ago and there way hair on everything lol
    Most double coated breeds blow their coats just before winter and before somer so they have a fresh walm coat for winter and a new thinner coat for sumer.
    Beyond that I really dont think I am going to be much help. I just swept furbunnies off the floor everyday and had a roller for my cloths before I left for work.
    Good luck with it though!

    Ikea sticky rolls are the best. The hair comes straight off clothes, sheets, couches, everything basically. I even use them on the dog.
    I always buy about 20 when I go to Ikea, the ones at the $2 are ok, but they generally only have 10 rolls on them, it doesn't cover much. The Ikea ones have 60 sheets on them and are only $2. Worth it!
    Can you put the dog in a light coat while inside to stop the fur from spreading?

    Laura, doesn't really matter what you brush her with, she is in maulting season!

    Even if you were to brush her and strip her coat as best you can several times a day, the fur will still be maulting.

    Can you invest in a good vacuum?
