I've got a wired hair terier and I love him to bits. So much so that he is in the house the entire day(as I work from home) and on my lap 50% of the day...and he is also a great heater in the bed even if my boyfriend is here as well.
He, the doggie is 8 months now and his hair is getting out of control (as I am posting this my eye is itching cause I think there is a hair in)...It's everywhere. What can I do...I comb him (outside) and give him frequent baths but it's not working.

Anybody got some advice...some sort of gadget apart from the hoover that will sort this out...

I know I know he should stay outside but I'll keep him outside when I mangage to get him a doggy-friend...

I feel your pain, I've got a white dog and her hair is just absolutely everywhere, we've not found a way to stop it. We brush her loads but her hair still comes out everywhere.

My advice is to get used to it, and start buying clothes that are close to the same color as he is.

You don't get the love and devotion of a dog without the shedding of his fur, unless you buy one of those hideous little naked rat dog chihuahuas.

I clean every day in order for my pet hair to not bother me or anyone else. I have 4 cats and 2 dogs and have no problems because of cleaning every day. Just light dusting and vacuuming

I got an $85 Eureka pet hair vacuum at Walmart, sucks the stuff up like a miracle. I love it. I have a bigger more expensive vacuum, but this has a special attachment. Woosh, hair gone.

I know the feeling. A permamently moulting Jack Russell. She holds on to the dark hairs and shares the white ones with us.

Treat the source. Give him a table spoon or so of CORN oil every day. Much less if he's a little dog. A lab can have a table spoon, a toy dog maybe a teaspoon. It keeps their coat healthy and keeps them from shedding as much.

We have 2 dogs and 4 cats too and the hair is a real problem for my husband. I haven't found anything that really works but I'm going to have to try the Eureka pet hair vac. As far as I'm concerned, the animals are worth putting up with the hair for all the love they give you.

Thanks so much for all your feedback.
Dabby I will try the corn oil.
I love my little poochy so much and the hair is part of the deal. Luckily I'm not such a fan of black clothing but my bf and everyone else who visits is and even cleaning everyday gets the ones that fly off him when he's excited
And I also look out for a small power hoover thingy. Wish someone could invent something that doesn't make a sound but can extract the hair direct of the dog while brushing him.
I would pay good money for an invention like this.
Glad there is so much animal lovers like myself out there!!!
