I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND!!! I have two olde english bulldogges grils 3yr old and the other 8mnths the mom sheds like CRAZY!!! Now we have Mr.Beefy the newest Pack member and he not only sheds but has anal gland,poopy butt, tail pocket and ear yeast issues. I put their food and water bowls in their crates so i dont have to mop every 5 minutes lol. But I still have carpet so vacuuming is constant and always on my knees looking for places where Mr.Beefy decided to scrub his booty on the floor lol. For the odor I wash them ALL once a week with a baby shampoo and rinse with vinegar. I keep Febreeze Pet Odor handy and recently found a pet friendly spray by thrifty maid that is AWESOME!! My Olde's are low maint dogs so i dont have to do daily cleaning with them. But Mr. Beefy has to have his ears cleaned and medicine at night and in the morning, bit booty and anal glands wiped every time he goes outside, meds put on his anal glands 4x a day, nose rope wiped and balmex, his tail pocket cleaned and an anti-yeast med put on 4x a day. Its alot of work and very time consuming but I wouldnt have it any other way.
