My yellow lab sheds too - my solution - lab coloured flooring throughout the house! You still have to hoover a lot but it is slightly less obvious. My pup also really hates being brushed. She runs and hides when i bring it out!
I keep my dog clipped mainly because its quicker to dry him after muddy runs , which is a twice daily occurrence here. He actually looks lovely clipped,just different ,I'm thinking of getting some clippers and trying it for myself I always used to clip my own horses but I'm not sure it's the same . Perhaps someone could tell me ?
I don't brush him a lot no. Maybe that is another job for the kids! I know labs moult but blimey, it just sometimes get too much!! I'll try brushing him and failing that, I'm going to clip him out and rug well just like we do with the nags!! haha!
