Dealing with Shedding: Tips and Products for Managing Dog Hair

Dog shedding can be a challenge for any pet owner. While it’s a natural process for dogs, excessive hair around the house can be frustrating to deal with. Luckily, there are effective ways and specialized products to help manage your furry friend’s shedding. In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore practical grooming tips and introduce you to some innovative products from FIDOFAVE that can make dealing with shedding easier and more efficient.

1. Understanding Dog Shedding

Shedding is a normal process where dogs naturally lose old or damaged hair. The amount and frequency of hair shed often depend upon their health, breed type, and the season. Some breeds shed year-round, while others, like those with double coats, typically shed more during the spring and fall.

2. Regular Grooming: The First Line of Defense

The most effective way to manage shedding is regular grooming. Brushing your dog several times a week, or even daily during peak shedding seasons, helps remove loose fur and reduce the amount you find around your house.

It gently removes undercoat, loose hair, knots, flakes, and trapped dirt. What sets this brush apart is its one-click cleaning button and UV sterilization feature, making grooming not only efficient but also hygienic.

3. Nutrition and Hydration

A healthy diet and proper hydration are crucial in managing shedding. Ensure your dog's diet is rich in essential fatty acids, which help maintain healthy skin and coat. Supplements like fish oil can also be beneficial.

4. Bathing Routine

Bathing helps reduce excess fur and keep your dog's coat healthy. However, over-bathing can strip natural oils and lead to more shedding. Use a mild, moisturizing dog shampoo to prevent skin dryness.

Regularly cleaning your home, including vacuuming floors and washing your dog’s bedding, can significantly reduce the presence of pet hair.

7. Professional Grooming Sessions

Sometimes, it’s beneficial to book a professional grooming session, especially for breeds with complex coat types or for owners who find home grooming challenging.

8. Stress and Health Check

Excessive shedding can sometimes be a sign of stress or poor health. Regular vet check-ups are essential to ensure your dog isn’t shedding excessively due to underlying health issues.


Managing your dog's shedding is much easier with the right approach and tools. Regular grooming, proper diet, and the use of effective grooming products like those from FIDOFAVE can greatly reduce the hassle of dealing with pet hair.
