Dog shedding is one of the most common problems that every dog owner must face.
The solutions can vary from a pure vitamin to an expensive robotic vacuum to a dog leotard.
All of those solutions promise you one thing only: “you can stop dog shedding.”
However, no matter how expensive or how grandiose the solution might seem, there is nothing that you can do to stop your dog shedding completely.
In the end, you have to deal with the fact; dog shedding is a routine that happens in a dog’s life.
But don’t worry, even though there’s nothing that you can do to stop your dog from shedding completely, there are few simple things that you can do to minimize excessive dog shedding.
In this infographic, you’ll learn three simple steps to minimize excessive dog shedding:
Feed the right foods
It is a well-known fact that 90% of dogs’ health problems come from feeding un-proper foods or lack of healthy foods. When it comes to minimizing dog shedding, the good news is you don’t need to buy dog foods that cost hundreds of dollars; sometimes the solution can be as simple as giving more water to drink.
Kill fleas and ticks
Fleas and ticks are probably the number one factor that causes a dog to shed excessively.
When your dog is infested with fleas and ticks, and you don’t know what to do, look at your kitchen and see if you have any of the following: Dawn dishwashing liquid, borax powder, lemon water, baking soda or vinegar.
Those are the most effective and yet the cheapest solutions to kill fleas and ticks.
Clean up your house
Trust me when I say, you don’t need $1,000 robotic vacuum to clean up your home from fur and loss hair. Every time dog shedding season comes, and it is the time to clean up the house, all I need are rubber gloves, a balloon, a sponge, duct tape, and one hour of my time.
The balloon works like magic to clean up your house from fur and loss hair. All you need to do is take any standard rubber balloon, blow it up, and rub it on the furniture. Then, the static electricity effect (I think that’s what scientists call it) will do the rest.
My other favorite tool is duct tape. It is fun, and you can do it with your kids. What you need is duct tape and paint roller cover. Wrap the duct tape around a paint roller cover but with the sticky side facing out. Then roll the duct tape over your furniture. Keep adding a new layer of duct tape over the first once covered in the fur. After finish, just cut off the duct tape and throw it away.
