How many times have you gone out of the house, looked down at your outfit, and realized that the hair of your pooch is covering you like a jumpsuit? Too barkin' many. So you either have to get rid of the dog, which is obvs not an option, or figure out how to get your dog to stop shedding. Or at least, get a hold on the situation.
As Wag! advisory board member and dog behaviorist Robert Cabral, tells Bustle, all dogs shed, whether their fur is long or short. It's natural. All you have to do is have your dog groomed.
"If you're not grooming your dog on a regular schedule, they are more likely to have a shedding problem," Cabral says. "If, in between professional grooming, you are bathing and brushing and your dog is on a healthy diet with added supplements, you should see the amount of fur he sheds lessen."
Cabral says that if even after grooming on a consistent basis, your dog still has problems with excess shedding, don't hesitate to look into a new diet and supplements for a healthy coat.
Below, look at some of the steps you can take to get that hair problem under control.
