You wouldn't think so since they have such short hair, but the hairs are like little needles, they weave into the fabric of your clothes and in the car seats, and it's really hard to get it off, the only thing that really works for my clothes is washing them and putting them in the dryer. Lol. As for the house we vacuum then sweep and Swiffer every Wednesday, and on Sundays we vacuum, sweep, swiffer then damp mop, we have hard wood floors throughout the house with an area rug in the living room, so it's pretty easy to keep clean. We bathe the dogs every two weeks usually on a Sunday, I shampoo them, then rinse with warm water, and we do a second rinse with apple cider vinegar and warm water, I mix about half and half, and pour it on their bodies, not on their heads, and leave it on for about 4 or 5 mins, then rinse it off, it makes their fur really soft, and Blossom is all white, and it keeps her fur really white, plus I find it keeps them smelling clean longer in between their baths. After they are dry, we brush them which removes a lot of the loose hairs after their bath, it helps to reduce the shedding between baths as well, we also have the Furminator brush which is supposed to remove the loose hairs from their under coats, I don't know if I see a difference from using it, or whether the baths and brushing are keeping the shedding at bay? But I guess it doesn't hurt. Lol. I hope this helps.

    I do the vinegar rinse, one gallon of water and one cup of vinegar. Just leave it on and dry, no smell and it keeps them smelling very good for a couple of weeks, no hint of vinegar smell either

    A former client of mine told me about this prior to us having Bacon, I was there one day when fedex dropped off supplies and they scrambled for them like little kids under a burst pinata it was hysterical.

    Loki sheds a bit too. Since he is a walking allergic reaction we started using children's shampoo on him because everything dog friendly made it worse and some of it made him break out in hives all over. We also learned that is is very common for bullies to devolop alopecia over the longer winter months. Loki looked like a spotted dalmatian for a few weeks until the sun finally made a stop in mn

    @Lokismom what are you feeding him? Also have you tried getting an allergy panel to see what exactly he is allergic to?

    We switched him from crappy food to NutriSource Lamb and he loves it. He was having problems with grains, beef and poultry along with grass and other pollens. He also take fish oil and probiotics ) We haven't had the panel done but have kind narrowed his allergies as they pop up ) For the first year we didn't have any problems then after that it has been one thing after another with his allergies

    I've got a long haired white & beige cat that LOVES to lay on anything black...
    she's obsessed. Wayyyyy back when, we exchanged our fabric furniture for
    leather and bought area rugs to match the animals.

    Sell those black rugs and get light colored ones, maybe patterned...GOD bless!

    Do you use the 'spot on' pest control on him. I just read an interesting article about
    allergic reactions to them if dog is allergic to ragweed or chysanthumums since pyrethrims
    are made from them. People w/ragweed allergies can react from these used on dogs
    and petting them.

    We actually don't use any of the pest drops I guess is the best way to say it. We generally only use a flea and tick collar on him

    That can cause the same reactions and/or other skin issues.
