Trying to reduce dog shedding is... an eternal struggle. If you have a short-haired dog (or almost any dog for that matter), shedding is part of the dog parent experience!
And no, you cannot stop a dog from shedding. Period. It's not possible. If you find any type of product or supplement that claims to stop shedding, avoid it!
In this episode, I'm going to break down 3 main things you can do to reduce your dog's shedding.
#1- Coat Health
Dog shedding is natural but ensuring your pup's coat health is in top shape can reduce shedding.
Make sure your dog's getting enough Omega's in their diet or with an added supplement.
Our dog's overall nutrition and health affect shedding in many ways!
#2- Brush Regularly
How often you need to brush your dog will depend on the breed, but most dogs should be brushed at least a couple of times per week. For some dogs, it may need to be done more frequently.
Regularly brushing helps to pull out the loose hair from your dog's coat. While you may not see dramatic results right away, consistency will help reduce your dog's shedding.
#3- Bathing Routine
A consistent bathing routine can also help to reduce how much your dog sheds!
If you're dealing with a LOT of shedding, It's important to use a shampoo that can aid in reducing shedding.
I have two Labrador Retrievers who shed more than you can imagine. And above all, the thing that has helped the most with their shedding is Sudsy.
It's an all-natural shampoo bar with a combination of ingredients that seriously help reduce shedding. My dog Scout sheds off so much more of her coat when we use Sudsy for baths. You can check out Sudsy (available in 2 scents) here: https://pfrd.site/sudsy-here
The other important part of a healthy bathing routine is to blow dry your dog. It's best to use a dog-specific blow dryer if possible. The high-powered vacuums work to clear out as much loose hair and undercoat as possible.
If you want to use a normal hairdryer, be sure to do it on warm or cool and not on hot. The high heat can cause damage to your dog's coat.
And the 3rd step of a successful de-shedding bath routine must include brushing your dog. That last step of brushing will help pull out any final hairs still waiting to be shed.
So your bathing routine should consist of the following.
-Use a shampoo formulated to reduce shedding
-Dry dog completely, preferably with a dog-specific hairdryer
-Completely brush your dog out
Following that routine has reduced my dog's shedding more than anything else!
Bonus Tip- Treatments at the Groomer
If you have an extreme shedder in your house, it could be worth taking your pup into a groomer for a full de-shedding.
Prices will vary depending on where you live, but it's likely only something you'll need to do a couple of times each year.
Personal Life-Hack: Get a Robot Vacuum
This isn't necessarily going to reduce shedding, but investing in a robot vacuum is a life-saver in a house with dogs.
There are models that cover a huge price range (some starting at $99) but even something simple will help reduce how frequently you need to sweep/vacuum.
Our robot vacuum is one of the most important things we have in our home, thanks to two Labrador Retrievers.
