How to Control Your Dog’s Shedding

How to Control Your Dog's SheddingUnfortunately, a totally shed-free dog is impossible to find. All dogs shed to some extent, but following a few simple tips will help your home stay neater and make it easier to control mild to moderate pet allergies.

The most important thing you can do to control pet hair is to brush your dog each day. Brushing makes your pooch’s coat cleaner, softer, and less likely to shed. Choose a brush designed for your dog’s specific coat type, such as a pin brush for dogs with silky, woolly, or curly fur.

It’s true that some breeds shed more than others, but your pet’s diet also makes a difference in the amount of shedding you’ll notice. Dogs that eat a high quality food with easily digested protein sources and supplemental fatty acids will shed less than those who are fed poor quality pet food.

If someone in your home suffers from allergies, do not allow your pet to enter his or her bedroom. Allergy sufferers should also get in the habit of washing their hands after touching the family dog to avoid transferring allergens to their eyes and face.

HEPA filters can be also very helpful for those with allergies to dog hair. Invest in an air purifier that uses a HEPA filter and run it at least four hours per day to help remove pet dander and other allergens. If it’s time to buy a new vacuum, pick one with a HEPA filter as well.
