I've used a rubber curry and a steel blade to remove the dead fur. There is no end. Is there something else I should be doing??? Diet, new vacuum cleaner??

It will never stop !! These non shedding dogs *grins* do shed...fortunately not as bad as some other breeds.. :rolleyes:

I vacume all the time :blink: ..bought a bagless vac so I don't spend a fortune in sweeper bags...diet may help and maybe a little vegetable oil for the dry skin..what are you feeding ?

Did you just get your dog ?? Is he blowing his kennel coat..??

 

I had a white greyhound years ago..he had "bunny hair "..talk about shed !! I sang " It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" Everytime I vacumed.. :lol:lol

It may not stop, but it will slow down if he's shedding his undercoat. Chewie hardly shed at all until about three-four weeks ago. It's been non-stop fur since then, enough for a couple more dogs. Then, suddenly and miraculously, he literally stopped shedding overnight. We had just bought a Roomba to do daily vacuuming! Weird dog. If you're worried, you could try fish oil supplements.

I just posted about this the other day. You might find some helpful (and humorous) responses here.

Thanks...read your thread. I'm not alone and I'm doing everything right.

Darrel has been with me 3.5 years...so it's not kennel coat. I guess dogs shed!

What's bunny hair? :dunno

 

We're shedding here, too. Chase was shedding becausae of the fireworks, and Red is blowing coat again! :blink:

We brush a lot with a hound glove.... out in the yard. When the kids come home, they think something has been murdered :lol

Compared to our Collie and Lab, our Greyhound doesn't shed much at all.

Brushing often sure helps us a lot!

Bunny hair is what I always called the longer haired dogs...they were fluffy !!
