yipes, that's what I hear! Honestly, it hasn't been as bad as some of the tufts I've seen people pull off of their corgis..! I was thinking about the Petsmart deshedding groom actually.. thanks -- I will look into it!
I knew I was getting a hairy breed and I'm ok with that, just want to decrease as much as I reasonably can! I think Ollie's off the bed for a little bit though.. it's too warm for a fur blanket on top of my down comforter! hehe
I agree-- learn to laugh at the hair! One very good breed-selection book I read suggested visiting homes of heavily shedding breeds before getting one, because people frequently think they'll be ok with the hair until they actually, you know, see it all! LOL I grew up with shedding dogs and frankly was stunned by the amount of hair my two lose.
Good luck with the new puppy! And it's true: they may very well not shed at the same time.
well, I think we've made it through the worst of the furstorm! He seems to be back to the normal shedding (which for me isn't bad at all to deal with) after 4-5 days of fur going in all directions.. my poor Roomba (which I now consider an additional family member, and have named Ginny) has been working extra rounds.. but my floors are clean! I furminated him really well 2x (1x on 2 days) plus he got a (furminator brand) deshedding shampoo bath and between the 2, I think we're good til the next round!
My godmom, who was a breeder for 30 years and used to show dogs, gave me the suggestion of using a few teaspoons of fabric softener (obviously only if your dog is not allergy prone and you feel 100% comfortable doing so) on his coat after shampooing and then waiting a few minutes before rinsing it all off.. Ollie smells AMAZING, is super duper soft and shiny, and perhaps it helped with the shed?
now to tackle getting him used to the dremel... yipes! wish us luck! :)
With Our 2 corgis in the house,one the closest to a fluff without being one,makes Me sound like a commercial.I still love the furminator but after getting the new pet hair attachment for the Dyson ,that's my new favorite!!Of course the vacuum is very noisy,but the hose is long enough to stick in a room adjacent to the pups,so I can use the new brush/suck up attachment.
Each corgi right now gives Me an entire cannister full of hair each brush,which I try to do at least once a week.Regular brushing id every couple of days.
What is the attachment? I've been thinking of getting a dyson myself!
Hardwood Floors and Leather Furniture...........the only thing that keeps me sane. They both vacuum easily.
We are a two corgi family.........every time we furminate it looks like 20 cats fought to the death in our yard.
We agree!Leather and hardwood,yay!!
