Pet Hair Is Everywhere



Hi Neighbors!!

You all may know that we used to raise Shelties, but now we have 4 Toy Aussies.  They each have their own personality that makes them just a little bit different, but one thing they have in common is FUR.  Lots of fur!  It is important to try and keep this under control, especially if you have someone in the family who suffers from allergies.

We have hardwood floors and tile throughout the house, so if not taken care of, not only do I have 4 furry pets running around, I also start to see loads of little fur bunnies scurrying around from place to place.  I have come up with a few solutions to cut down on these little fur balls.


The first thing we do, is to groom on a regular basis.  I have a grooming table, as well as bins full of grooming supplies.  We have brushes, combs, safety scissors, grooming gloves and wipes.  Using the glove and brushes on a regular basis will cut down on quite a bit of the loose fur floating around.  Wiping the dogs off when they come in with wipes, will also help remove loose fur.  Included in grooming we bathe the Aussies on a regular basis, usually about once every 4-6 weeks.

We also make sure we are feeding them a healthy food.  We have experienced trial and error while trying to find a good balance in their dry food.  Healthy food makes healthy coats.  Adding a small amount of coconut oil or fish oil will improve their coats.

I have a dust mop that sprays a small amount of cleaner out in front of the mop head.  This is good for those occasional loose hairs wandering around, before they group together to form a bust bunny.



For those hairs, that seem to appear on a semi-regular basis, we vacuum.  It is important to have a regular schedule for cleaning our floors.  I like the extra attachments on our vacuum that allow me to also vacuum under some of the shelves and furniture that fur-balls love to hide under.  Many a time I have cleaned a room to turn and see small dust bunnies come out from under a piece of furniture.  Make sure the vacuum you use is good for pet hair.  You can find reviews online, check this out now. A good vacuum is needed if you have carpet in your home as well.

Last of all, we have several lint rollers in the home.  We use these mainly on clothing, but they will also work on upholstered furniture.  My daughter carries a small lint roller in her purse to remove those stray hairs when she heads out.

Feel free to share your own tips and tricks in the comments below.  See you soon!
