That one seems to be more gentler I dont know why. Does anyone have any advice on how much they shed? It seems like Mia is shedding everyday seems a lot to me not to sure. Also how often do you brush/groom your bully?

    @Rigginsluv11 & @2BullyMama
    Riggins was shedding crazy amounts of hair! I would brush him and us the Furminator on him and I swear he would leave a trail if hair as he walked on by. Lol. I brush him every day or every other. From what I've learned they blow out their coats so maybe that's what is happening. It does seem as though his shedding has slowed down some. So now I'm brushing a couple times a week. But I still have to vacuum every day. I could just follow him around with a dust buster! 😂 I've also read their shedding is affected by the change of seasons. Others will know more than me on that though. Rigs is my first bulldog. 😃

    theres nothing worse thank brushing your bully going back in the house, stroke your bully and it's as
    if you haven't had a brush anywhere near him.
    This was something that surprised me about the breed

    Maybe it is the seasonal change then I have read some threads about it and looked on the dates and spring does seem to bring on the shedding. Thank you again. Ya I was not totally sure on how much I should be brushing her with the furminator. Seems like I can brush and brush and brush and seems like I still find loose hair on her. HMM weird. Maybe I will take a vac to her after lol

    I'm pretty sure we will always find loose hairs on our babies! Hahaha let me know how that works! I may have to try that with Rigs. 😂

    If only someone can invent a robot flea that eats only the shedded fur that would really help lol.

    I went through this a few months ago. Switched foods, dropped the salmon oil and nuvet plus vitamins. I brush him every other day with the gofur (similar to furminator) and daily with kong zoom groom. I use furminator conditioner which I think has helped as well. Ace still sheds, but nowhere near how he used to!

    I use an Oregano-based shampoo called Oregapet. Seems to curb the shedding for 10 days - 2 weeks.

    I have both the furminator and zoom groom. Love both, and use both weekly.
    Also this is a bit of a expense, but I bought a robot vacuum. He runs daily in the areas Dooley frequents while I'm at work. So I come home to zero hair on the floors. Best purchase I've made other than the wrinkled fat ball that drops said hair all over.

    We use the Furminator for ours two and it works really well. I have noticed though, that this time of year we just can't keep up. We groom them and sweep the floors and it just keeps coming, lol.
