My boxer can't seem to quit shedding so much. I brushes her but it seems that the hair just seems to keep coming out, especially around her shoulders and neck. Is there a special brush or other options that I can use to keep her from shedding so much? She's got a baby sister that's 8 weeks old (that she loves by the way) that can't get on the floor because she sheds so much. We sweep 2 times a day but it's not enough.

Lick, lick, lick- I like to lick.

Zoom Groom is the only thing gentle enough for Rosie that works. This time of year they seem to shed like mad.

I get a warm rinse once a week and get brushed several times until I am mostly dry. Since I am in southern California there is a warm enough day pretty much year round so we are rinsed outside, go for a walk and stop for brushing several times. That takes off huge amounts of hair.


Somewhere there- is something I- can eat..

We don't have to wash ours very often, but during the shedding seasons, we do bathe more frequently- a really good scrub gets a lot of the loose fur out, that way if you towel dry, they are pretty much good for a week or so.
