Dog hair. If you’ve got a born shedder like me, it’s part of life. You find it on your clothes, covering your carpet and occasionally—to your horror—on your plate. Your dog is shedding like crazy, but what do you do to fight the fluff? My shepherd mix is what I like to call an extreme shedder, and these six tools are lifesavers for me.
