    Default Hair Overload! - Suggestions?

    Ok so BB is now almost 9 months old, I NOW see what people meant by they shed. Her first 9 months I felt like "hey, this is not so bad, I can keep up with this..." now that the hair is getting longer I have bought a new dysons upright animal vacuum cleaner but is there anything to help keep the couch cleaned up from hair? It is a bit much getting the upright out every night and cleaning up the couch but if I do not then I am looking like a hairball!

    Thanks for any help!

    Try handstripping her. If you keep her coat groomed out she will shed less.
    I use either my fingers or a comb with an elastic band woven into the teeth.

    I have to admit Oliver has quite a fine coat, so someone with a heavier coated Cavalier might be better placed to give advice. lol

    Good luck

    Hi

    We have four girls and keep them all in full coat and our saviour is the hand held Dyson Animal DC34 for ease around the house.

    Regular/daily brushing will help with hair.

    I too am a HUGE fan of that handheld Dyson Animal -- a charge lasts for ages longer than other handhelds; I can do my entire stairs with it! So much handier for sofas etc too rather than getting out the whole vacuum.

    Some individual cavaliers she d a LOT more than others...

    But she is around the age that they often 'blow' their puppy coat and also as the weather is warm, she may just be shedding her winter coat -- so it may not be a permanent level of shedding.

    Whew - Karlin you may have made my day! It has just gotten "summer" warm here in the Carolinas and I was unaware that she could be losing her puppy coat - that may explain things. Thanks to you and Brian for the handheld suggestion - I am off to buy the Dyson handheld you both recommend.

    Do any of you use the FURminator on your Cavaliers? Thoughts? Does it work or would you steer clear?

    Haha we have hardwood floors so we occasionally have a ball of hair just roll by...it's hilarious. Or sometimes we find a TON of accumulated hair in some nook or cranny.

    1) Brush your dog regularly to get rid of dead/loose hair. Bebe -- we use the furminator and have not seen any negative effects.

    2) We used to have one of those sticky roller things to pick Skippy's hair off our clothes but it got tiring buying replacements, so I bought several of these -- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o06_s00_i00
    Have one in each of our cars and a couple spread out throughout the house.

    We use it and like it. ( Usually use it on the deck outside) Wrigley likes it too..and it works well for him.

    Exactly the same, as it was here, only we called it tumbleweed!
