    Omg what a sweet face!

    I add oil, either coconut or salmon, to their diet. The kong zoom groom works great too.

    I brush my dogs weekly… I use the furminator to loosen up the hair, and then I use the zoom groom for an allover brushing. I also take them to the groomers every 8 weeks to get bathed… it does seem to help on the shedding, but w/the weather changing to colder temps they will blow out their summer coats.

    Yogi is precious!! Like the other's Kong Zoom Groom brush, coconut oil in his food. I use Pharmaseb shampoo from our vet's I noticed a huge change in shedding by using this shampoo. It is antifungal/yeast shampoo. I'm pretty sure you can order on Amazon. It does not lather, but you soak them down, let it sit for 10 mins. and then rinse.

    I've used them all but hands down the best is the Furminator! that thing is incredible. Available on amazon.

    I agree with the zoom groom, especially around this time of year when the seasons are changing. We also have a ready supply of lint rollers and we run our Roomba daily.

    I use a zoom groom as well and brush daily, though on occasions I will skip a day. Even so there is still alot of shedding and just recently bought a new vacuum, the type that doesn't require bags because after every two or three times vacuuming I would have to replace the bag as there was so much hair. I have basically resigned myself to it and brush and vacuum regularly. Ace has always been on a quality food and supplemental oil in the food, it probably helps but there is still quite a bit of shedding. As I stated I have simply resigned myself to it and keep up the brushing and vacuuming. It's all good though cause I love my dogs. I use to have a spotless home that always smelled fresh and clean, now there is usually at least a lingering odor of Bulldog, but all is well.
