Have you tried fish oil supplements? It's supposed to take 6 weeks, but reduce the amount of shedding. I hear your frustration because husky fur owns myl life for much of the year. I got a fulminant or, which really helps. I got a Dyson vacuum, which really helps. But our dogs shed a lot and that's just kind of part of loving them, so management is really the only option.

I agree that is part of these type of Breeds, it's all a part of it there is nothing you can do to completely stop it, use Libby's advice and other then that it is a daily part of my cleaning to with Husky fur :)

It could be as simple as feeding a better food to help with shedding. Food that is high in grains and by-products, can cause the coat and skin to be unhealthy.

A lot of groomers offer furminator treatments that help vastly if done every 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately, you have a dog mixed with two very hairy breeds. Also a lot of groomers will do just walk in brush out sessions you can do in between full grooms. P.s a comb will be your best friend :)
